This debut album was recorded, mixed & mastered entirely in analogue & pressed on black-dyed virgin heavy vinyl only in a small edition. The band claim to hate CDs, but we've been granted permission to re-release this fantastic album on that very format anyway.
Black Time only currently play live at one of the regular blues parties that take place in their basement hideout. The select few who have been initiated into this cult of sound have reported loss of speech, hair falling out, physical incapacity & loss of bowel control after a performance. The Black Time plan to tour the deep south of America in 2005 with a revue featuring motorcycle leather boys, wall-projected homemade slasher films, whip-cracking tiger girls & media professionals eating their own shit LIVE ON STAGE.
Records on the dansette prior to the weekend long recording session that produced the BLACKOUT long player included: ELECTRIC EELS, RIP-OFFS, THE FALL, PUSSY GALORE, HUGGY BEAR, WARSAW, HOUND DOG TAYLOR, BIRTHDAY PARTY, CRIME, GOSSIP, KING TUBBY, HUNCHES, GERMS, RITES OF SPRING, GUITAR WOLF, BIKINI KILL, PAGANS, SUICIDE, MONORCHID, BO DIDDLEY, NATION OF ULYSEES, FLEASH EATERS, PRINCE, MUMMIES, BLACK FLAG, LINK WRAY and THE PHANTOM...that should give you an idea where these cats are coming from....or maybe not.
This is the heavy vampire sound. Fuck & Rage. They are the undead stumbling into twilight feeding off broken youthful dreams unable to stop our endless march. Blind & deaf neutered howling. The inescapable magnet pull of American rock n roll records: modern girls & modern rock n roll. The cheap tobacco, tea, beer, movies & radio palliative that George warned us about, standing between us & revolution.
