Rain Parade - Last Rays Of A Dying Sun


This product is available on pre order with a limited discounted price.

One for the lovers of psychedelic tropes and muscular melodies... or LA's mid-80s underground scenes.

A debut release from Label 51 Recordings. The, now reunited, Rain Parade are one of the leading lights of the Paisley Underground scene in the early and mid-’80s in Los Angeles.

As described by Nick Hasted from Uncut, this album is a record loyal to psychedelic tropes and muscular melodies. The best tracks gently slip their moorings, as with the sour fuzzed guitar and damaged lyrics of ’Got The Fear’, and hazy warp and alchemical concerns of the insinuatingly addictive ‘Green’. ‘Bring You Back’’s bright psych-pop shows Rain Parade’s sunnier side. Also featuring special guest musicians including Debbie and Vicki Peterson of The Bangles.
