Limited edition white vinyl LP

Interwoven Hammond organ riffs, heavy electric guitar and melodic bass lines give Nucleus an edge — their odd time signatures make it an aural lobotomy! Pressed on white vinyl!

The origins of Nucleus lay in late '60s Toronto combo The Lords Of London. They were a popular live attraction and appeared at the Canadian National Exhibition alongside The Guess Who and Kensington Market, as well as U.S. bands like Moby Grape.

Though they had minor Canadian hits, a U.S. breakthrough never came, and by September 1968 they were evolving into a different sort of act. Having changed their name to Nucleus and adopted a jazzier, more improvisational approach in daylong rehearsals, they recorded their sole LP with all original songs.

Their sound ranges from the deranged "Jenny Wakes Up" to the intense "Communication." Issued in April 1969 (its release having been briefly delayed by what Billboard described as 'a technical complication'), the album attracted considerable cult interest, with the single version of "Communication" receiving heavy underground airplay.
