CD Version (released by M’Lady’s Records):

Available worldwide for the first time ever on compact disc in its newly remastered state, M’lady’s is extremely excited to announce the reissue of DEAD MOON’s classic album from 1992, “Strange Pray Tell”. Highly sought by rock ‘n’ roll maniacs around the globe for its breathtaking songwriting and attitude, it’s also the fourth release in M’lady’s reissue series documenting many different timeless albums issued by Fred & Toody Cole (also of the Rats and Pierced Arrows).

This is the album that’s got “Fire in the Western World”, “Can’t Do That”, “Going South”, “Play With Fire”, and another half-dozen classics beloved by Dead Moon enthusiasts. For the uninitiated, DEAD MOON come on almost like a hybrid of the most exciting elements of Love, AC/DC,the Weeds, and the Elevators. No joke. The group are also famous for operating extremely DIY, down to the recording and mastering of their albums (famously cut on the very same lathe that cut “Louie Louie” by the Kingsmen!).

“Strange Pray Tell” was reissued on LP by our comrades at the estimable Mississippi Records in 2013, and we’ve teamed up with them to get this compact disc edition out to you, the bedroom rebel,the night time revolutionary, the romantic with a wake of destruction in your path. Also highly recommended for everyone with a beating heart and two ears.

LP Version (released by Mississippi Records):

One of Dead Moon’s all time classics, filled with some of their catchiest & most rousing songs. Rockers of the highest caliber such as Destination X, Fire In The Western World & Don’t Look Back as well as perfect ballads such as You Can’t Do That & Out In The Blues. An utter masterpiece of psychedelic rock straight from the heart. The most requested Dead Moon LP by Mississippi Records customers!
