Naturally the Space Rock continuum is measured in space time so, while just one year may have passed on Jupiter, down here on planet Earth a dozen Gregorian years have elapsed since the 2011 release of Lunar Dunes' 'Galaxsea' on the 4Zero label.

That original 4Zero cd pressing has long since sold out and now sells for eye-watering sums on the record collector market. In recent years the album has only been available as an incomplete authorised download and via a number of unauthorised streams. With 'Galaxsea' generating well over a million streams on YouTube there has been a growing clamour among discerning heads for the band to release a retro-formatted reissue for those who want to take their voyages into inner space off-line. The good news for all the Time Lords, truth-seekers and inter-planetary vacationers who have gravitated towards this time-bending cult classic is that it is finally beniffiting from a first vinyl pressing.

For the vinyl of 'Galaxsea' the band selected 7 of their favourite pieces from the sessions to produce a 50 minute 'Galaxsea' highlights package. The 'Galaxsea' vinyl edition has been mastered by Nick Robbins and has been pressed on lustrous clear vinyl in a limited edition of just 300 copies.

Lunar Dunes were originally formed by guitarist Adam Blake (The Treatment, Cornershop), drummer Hamilton Lee (Transglobal Underground) and bassist Ian Blackaby. Influenced by the Kosmiche music of 60s and 70s West Germany and Teo Macero's work with Miles Davis, the band's debut album, 'From Above', was recorded in three days with sleeve design by Italian artist Iker Spozio and mixed and engineered by Paul Tipler (Stereolab, Mojave 3, Wonderstuff).
