Black Vatican - Zed Omega
One of my favorite Night People releases (next to The Twerps, of course)! Black Vatican are one of the best blown-speaker-pop bands I know about. The dusty fuzz and scuzz is all part of their charm. They released this cassette in 07, I believe, and I haven't heard from them much after that. Which is a damn shame - I would've liked to have seen what else they could churn out. Halfway through the album, after all the fuzz dies down, they have this very zen-like song that features trickling water.
Stand out tracks are; "I Was Born To Live Life", "I Don't Wanna Fight", "Dream Jogger", and "Hey, Do It".
UPDATE: Andy from Black Vatican contacted me with this info; "BV is putting out a new full LP this Summer on Locust Music. It's called "Oceanic Feelin'". A lot of the stuff on this tape also appears on a split LP with True Primes also on Locust. This split kinda didn't register for whatever reason, even though I think sounds good."
Be sure to look out for it when it gets released! It'll be completely worth the purchase as these guys are great!
