Flex Lavender - Shiny Fever 7" + demo














Purchase

Here's a nice little 7" that I released on Rocket Science Records back in the early - mid 90's. This is not metal, punk, emo or hardcore, but it is in my opinion a very good indie rock record that deserves to be heard. The band includes Dave Lerner who was in the band Native Nod who some of you maybe familiar with from the 90's emo scene. Flex Lavender had a female singer and definite Helium feel to their music. This 7" was recorded by my friend Alap at his Sweetwood Sound Studios in NJ. Some of you may know Alap from the band Dalek, and he has also contributed some remixes to the hydrahead label etc. Anyway I think Alap did a great job with this recording as it really has a clean sparkling production which really suits the music. I am also including 2 bonus tracks from the Flex Lavender demo tape which I am sure have not been released in any form until now, actually I am posting the complete demo and not the 7". The first 2 songs on the demo are the songs on the 7" ...I hope someone out there gives this a listen and enjoys it. I have copies of the vinyl available still if anyone is interested in getting one...Dave G.
