Vagrants Make the Scene at United Record Pressing!

Some of you maybe saw this on our Facebook page, but for those of you who don’t follow us there (why, I’m not sure…) then here are some cool photos of the Vagrants – I Can’t Make A Friend 1965 – 1968 (LITA 059) LP being pressed at United Record Pressing in Nashville, TN. All Light In The Attic releases (specifically vinyl) make their way over to United Record Pressing to be birthed into the world.  It’s a crazy process that involves a lot of weird and magical machines that somehow, through the talents of their gifted staff, imprint little musical slices of heaven onto circular shaped wax. Ain’t life a mystery???

Stay tuned, as Vagrants – I Can’t Make A Friend 1965 – 1968 is hitting the streets next week (get your pre-orders in now! Also availble on CD/MP3!).

Until then, have a look at these cool photos by URP’s Jay Millar (thanks Jay!) of Vagrants on the press!

First the labels start out on the spindle. So lonely, they are...

Then they go onto the stamper for a good squishin'! That hockey puck thing under is the vinyl wax.

Next, this weird little dude cuts off the excess wax. ouch!

Of course they collect the excess for kids to gnaw on. Yum!

Then the stacks of records go on this doohickey.

And there they are. Just waitin' to be fondled by your greasy hands!
