The Brian Jonestown Massacre Vinyl

THE BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE ‘POL POT’S PLEASURE PENTHOUSE’ VINYL 2XLP

First time available on vinyl , the only ever time this album has been officially released was on Burger Records (which was limited to 500 cassettes) .

Recorded in 1990/91 on a 4 track at Anton’s home in San Francisco, it is best described in Anton’s own words.
“when I left home and moved to san francisco, first thing on my mind was joining a band… the problem for me was that there were not any bands that would have me or even played the type of music I imagined I wanted to hear… so I decided to start my own…
I would make small down payments at pawnshops for gear, buy recording machines, amps, guitars, whatever. within 3 months of teaching myself the 7 folk chords I use nonstop to this day, I had already taught a few new friends how to play as well and we were off. I used to make up songs everyday on the 4 track just to teach myself how to write…
I understood what i liked about music, I just didn’t know how to pull it out of the ether and bring them into being. At the same time, I would make demo tapes and share them with friends… endless demo tapes…
I would send them to magazines and record labels with no return address, just for the fuck of it. It was never my intention to actually release this music… for instance if i came up with a country song, I would finish it just to learn more about writing…
I didn’t want to be in a classic country group, this is a document of my learning process. good times… this album is one such tape from 1990/91 I can’t remember. enjoy.”
