Sacred Baboon LP Sacred Baboon

format: LP
release date: 1985
label: Syn-Phonic

This was our second album, again put together by ourselves. Since no interest had been generated by our demo album, we decided to go for a second album that would be released on our own label with the hope that after it generated enough interest, it would attract the attention of a record company,

We funded the project ourselves, and just before finishing, we almost had a deal with a small label in Chicago, but the deal fell through. After completing the recording, but short of cash, we abandoned the idea of releasing the album and shelved the master tape.

Some eight years later, we were discovered by Syn-Phonic and the album was released in 1989 (thank you Peter Stoller!).

This album was recorded in about two weeks, in two different studios. We had started using the same studio as for the Boris album, but switched to another, more modern studio shortly after we started recording. In the time that had elapsed since recording Boris, our music had progressed and improved. Some of the material that appeared on Boris was reworked for this album.
