This is not a drill! “By popular demand, people want Michael Knott’s back catalog on vinyl! Our goal is to make that happen! This will be a trial run for us, if it goes well look for more albums to be reissued on vinyl and CD! We will begin with the 1989 classic L.S.U. album Wakin’ Up The Dead! Waking’ Up The Dead is the album that launched the Blonde Vinyl ship into the ragging sea, cutting the way for all relevant Christian Alternative record labels that followed. This Post-Punk masterpiece will be remastered by J.Powell at Steinhaus Mastering – he has recently worked on the Daniel Amos reissues/remasters as well as the Retroactive Records releases of Lifesavers Heaven High and L.S.Underground’s PTSD albums.
Wakin’ Up The Dead will be pressed on random colored vinyl, so each record is unique, no two will be alike. The packaging will be a double gatefold cover with a brand new painting by Michael for the cover!
Why do a new painting? Well the original paintings were not able to be located and blowing up the old cassette and CD art up to 12″ vinyl size will not look very good. On the plus, one lucky person will get the painting as a pledge option!
We will also be pressing high quality replicated CD’s! Not CDR’s this time!
Digital release will also be available!
STRETCH GOAL! STRETCH GOAL! STRETCH GOAL!
If we surpass our goal by $5,000, Michael Knott and Joshua Lory will collaborate once again to record a brand new full length record! Everyone who backs the Wakin’ Up The Dead rerelease will get a copy on CD as well as a digital download of the new album upon completion! Backers will receive the album before it goes to the general public!”
