Freedom Cruise/Nightwalker split 7''

Freedom Cruise/Nightwalker split 7''
(1994, Simple Solution Records)

One of the few split releases that Pollard has released alongside one of his other projects, this slab of wax saw the light of day just 4 months prior to the release of Bee Thousand.  This split between Freedom Cruise and Nightwalker is a bizarre pairing of basement recordings with different Pollard and the gang "bands."  The original pressing was limited to 1000, with a repress of another 1000 following soon after.

The following is a review of the Freedom Cruise side. The Nightwalker side can be read here.

Side A:
Freedom Cruise:
Cruise- 3 Ominous, bass plodding into over-blown downstrokes. Monotone, haunting melodies from Pollard. Song comes complete with ripping, eerie solo. Short and potent fuzz. Additionally, for the completests, an alternate version appears on GBV's Disc 3 of Suitcase.

Side B:
Lucifer's Arching Revolver- You can read the review of this side here.
