Sold out.

Our first Helios Creed reissue here. We've been turned on to his mind-bending music long before there was an AmRep when Tom Hazelmyer was introduced to Helio's first band, Chrome, in the late-70's. It was a no-brainer when he went solo after the band broke up to bring him on over for a series of records spanning most of the 90's. Lactating Purple is his 5th full-length studio album & the 3rd with us.

SPIN magazine's review called the album "amazing nonheavy heavy metal for science-fiction minds."

Artwork by HAZE XXL very loosely based on the cover of the original 1991 release, but still going for that college rock, art school weirdo vibe.

This is the Milk Edition. The sleeve has the darkest of all the purple ink combinations & that trait is also on the back of the sleeve. Vinyl is in a purple & black pinwheel pattern & just so you're aware, the pressing plant REEEEEALLY half-assed it with consistency, so it's a good idea to loosen up your definition of "pinwheel", a lot. We even included a photo on what we mean, so there's no surprises. Each sleeve is hand-stamped with the edition # & there are 100 copies on this one.

Catalog # is AMREP003.

Here's the track listings...


Lactating Purple
Flying Through the Either
Ub the Wall
Modular Green

Side B

Big Bang
The Radiated
Martian Sperm & Bagpipes

We say this nearly every time & maybe one day it'll work, but PLEASE place everything you want into 1 ORDER.

If there are multiple orders placed from the same customers we will either combine them with no refund on postage, or they will be sent out exactly as placed.

C'mon, it's hard enough processing a couple hundred orders quickly without this AND responding to all the emails requesting combined shipping and refunds. This delays EVERY order.
