“...stunning...proper psych-rock that takes its time to go where it's getting to — and all the better for it.”
—Record Collector Magazine
A Fruits de Mer Records lathe cut (each of these single-sided 12" records was cut by hand on a lathe) - only 85 copies were produced in total. The first 50 copies (packed in clear PVC sleeves with a single-sided insert) sold out quickly at the 15th Dream of Dr. Sardonicus Festival in August of 2017, becoming sought-after collectibles virtually overnight.
This deluxe edition of the remaining 35 copies has been re-packaged in outer sleeves with stunning full-colour gloss laminated artwork front and back. Inside is a special insert signed by all of the musicians who contributed, a tarot card, and a CD copy of Fat Old Sun. The printed pieces were designed, and then lovingly hand-trimmed and assembled, by Cary.
