The Glacials - Basement Days - LP

Before his work with Look People, Rheostatics, Barenaked Ladies, and the Lou Reed Band, Kevin Hearrn was in a high school band called THE GLACIALS - eclectic, whimsical, and delightfully weird. 


Celery Music presents: previously unheard recordings of Kevin Hearn’s first band The Glacials. Originally recorded between 1987-1989 to four-track tape, these previously unreleased gems - ranging from synth pop to garage rock and beyond - have been lovingly restored, renewed and remixed with friends new and old. The record was then mastered by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound.


“Everything influenced us in those days: animation festivals, David Lynch, lo-fi video game music, Vangelis soundtracks, Slim Whitman, fat joints, Lou Reed, The Residents, The Beatles, Zeppelin, Wendy Carlos - we were all, as Uncle Monty so succinctly says, “sponges” ready to fill the voids of our minds and souls with all the creativity we could cram in.” says Kevin.
