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
