Valley King Records updates!

White Manna

We have started taking pre-orders for the next Valley King Records release – White Manna’s ‘Come Down Safari’ LP. This is the second picture disc that we’ve released…and first full length!

As with all Valley King Records releases, this is limited to just 500 copies and artwork is by Alan Forbes. Once they sell out they won’t be repressed! All pre-orders will include a die-cut vinyl sticker based on the artwork. We are also offering a $5.00 discount on all pre-orders!

“Much of the edge of their set – which takes places amidst a backdrop of retina-burning ink projections of purples, blues and whites – comes from vocalist and guitarist David Johnson. He uses each loop of their psychedelic reel to whip himself up into a frothing at the mouth frenzy, to the point where his repeated mantras become unhinged howls, raging against the bone-hard space rock of his four band mates. In a recent interview, Johnson revealed he didn’t pick up a guitar until his late 20’s, which partly explains the primal nature of White Manna’s wonderfully swampy sound: on the one hand they’re heading towards the cosmos, but on the other they possess the raw punk nous of seminal garage bands like The MC5 and The Stooges.” – NME

Altamont ‘Mrs. Creech’ 7″

Posted in Latest Additions, Music, Original Art, Shirts, Valley King Records with tags , on September 23, 2013 by Secret Serpents

Formed in 1994, Altamont was started as a side project by Dale Crover of Melvins, along with Joey Osbourne of Acid King and Dan Southwick. This will be their first release since 2005 after having records previously released by Mans Ruin Records and AntAcidAudio. This release also includes Coady Willis (Melvins / Big Business) and Toshi Kasai to round out the band!

As with all Valley King Records releases, the artwork is by Alan Forbes. The record packaging is silkscreened and signed & numbered by Forbes. Each single also comes with a vinyl sticker based on the cover art.

In addition to the regular edition of 500 on black vinyl, we are releasing a very limited amount on colored vinyl!

We are also making a very limited amount of shirts based on the cover art. The shirts will be American Apparel (or equivalent). Pre-orders are the only way to guarantee your size. Sorry, no womens shirts….mens sizes only (S-XXL). All shirts come with a vinyl sticker!
