Medical Records continues on it’s exploration of seminal 1990s reissues with the 1994 masterpiece Silver Apples Of The Moon by England’s LAIKA. Originally released on the iconic Too Pure label in 1994, this record has long been out of print on vinyl.

Silver Apples Of The Moon was Laika’s first album and is almost unclassifiable. Taking a very forward-thinking approach, the sound is the result of a very unique equation of live drums/percussion, layered guitars/samples, and diverse analog tones that all fuse together to form a hypnotic polyrhythmic combination that was truly original. Too Pure was known for it’s cutting edge roster including Seefeel, Mouse On Mars, and Pram.

Laika was certainly no exception to these game-changing artists. Fans of the crucial and long lasting mark left by the Too Pure artists such as Pram and the like will definitely need to own this album if they have never heard it. For most fans, the original vinyl LP was not available or accessible (especially in the USA). The masters for which this reissue is sourced were directly transferred from the vinyl master source material courtesy of Beggars Limited with the utmost care and quality. The LP jacket features similar original artwork, and the LP contains a bonus insert with an engaging interview and write up by DAVE SEGAL featuring exclusive interviews with Laika’s GUY FIXEN and MARGARET FIEDLER.
