  • Al Milman (Alan Milman Sect) talks Vagrants and "The Long Island Sound" with LITA!

    Alan Milman is a NYC transplant living in Seattle where he used to co-own (with Moshe Weinberg) the much missed record store Bedazzled Discs.  It was there that Light In The Attic's Matt Sullivan (then an employee of Al's) first heard about the Vagrants (and a ton of other records). It was then that Al first planted the seed in Matt's head for doing a comp of the Vagrants singles...fast forwrad 10 years, and here we are. Just yesterday Vagrants I Can't Make A Friend 1965 - 1968 finally hit the streets. This week Al was kind enough to tell us a bit about growing up in NYC / Long Island during the time of the Vagrants and about his own place in NY's punk history. Read more
  • Vagrants - I Can't Make A Friend 1965 - 1968 NOW AVAILABLE!

    It's finally here! Litterally, it's been 10 years since Light In The Attic's man-with-the-plan Matt Sullivan was working at Al Milman's record shop, Bedazzled, in Seattle when Al spoke of the need for a Vagrants comp. Vagrants I Can't Make A Friend 1965 - 1968 collects the band's singles for various labels like Southern Sound, Vanguard, and ATCO, all on CD, LP (180-gram wax and gatefold "tip-on" sleeve), Digital and fully re-mastered. Rounding out this essential release is a collection of rare/unseen photos, liner notes by Mike Stax (Ugly Things), and an archive interview with Johnny Ramone speaking about the Vagrants' influence on The Ramones.

  • Vagrants Make the Scene at United Record Pressing!

    Some of you maybe saw this on our Facebook page, but for those of you who don't follow us there (why, I'm not sure...) then here are some cool photos of the Vagrants - I Can't Make A Friend 1965 - 1968 (LITA 059) LP being pressed at United Record Pressing in Nashville, TN. All Light In The Attic releases (specifically vinyl) make their way over to United Record Pressing to be birthed into the world.  It's a crazy process that involves a lot of weird and magical machines that somehow, through the talents of their gifted staff, imprint little musical slices of heaven onto circular shaped wax. Ain't life a mystery??? Read more
