Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available

First time vinyl release of The Brian Jonestown Massacre's Pol Pot's Pleasure Penthouse. The only time this album was ever officially released was on cassette on Burger Records (limited to 500 copies). Recorded in 1990/91 on a four-track at Anton Newcombe's home in San Francisco, Pol Pot's Pleasure Penthouse is available here as a colored 180 gram 2LP-set courtesy of the BJM mastermind's 'a' Recordings.

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 three months of teaching myself the seven 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 four-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."
