Vinyl LP pressing including bonus digital download of the album. Arriving slightly after the '80s Garage/Psych revival, Bethlehem PA's the Creatures of the Golden Dawn came on the scene with a lot more attitude than did earlier similar-minded combos. Lead by vocalist Mark Smith - their knife-sharp punky Garage-meets-the-early-days-of-Psychedelia tunes were filled with hooky riffs and always shadowed by varying degrees of darkness. The Creatures amassed a cult following in the states and Europe, and were played heavily on Little Steven's Underground Garage syndicated radio show.
