    Vaporland features members of 3 of Sub Pop's early flagship bands: Love Battery (Ron Nine and Kevin Whitworth), the Fluid (Garret Shavlik), TAD (Kurt Danielson),along with Katie Scarberry on percussion and vox. These friends got together for no other purpose than to rock & have fun. Ron, Kevin, Garrett, Kurt & Katie, have all been in many other bands than those mentioned here, including bands that still exist and which are very active here in Seattle, but despite this they all found that they were missing something, that there was a music lurking on the margins of their collective (sub)consciousness that none of them had yet found a way to express, and this frustration obsessed them, compelling Ron and Kurt to discuss it incessantly, until one day, when Garrett, Kevin & Katie happened to stop in, they decided to play, and happily all 5 Seattle musicians simultaneously experienced the epiphany that is Vaporland: the foggy, dreamy, dark yet luminous interzone between waking and sleep, a hypnogogic tranceworld of guttermazes and hallucinatory images newly emerged from the synchronic reservoir, a place we all know but forget once we fully wake up each morning. These sinister cads & vicious reprobates (and Katie too) would like to welcome you to Vaporland with their first, raw, primitive, loose but tense and true recordings, songs that reveal that grimy, dangerous blues-drenched licks can coexist with angular, driving post punk and ethereal, psychedelic pop and who knows what else to create a soundtrack for your worst and most relentless nightmares and your fondest, most fleeting dreams.
