'Life Inside Lucy' held a diverse culture of influences with stand out tracks in the form of 'Angel', 'Love', 'Denied', 'Times On My Side', 'Love Seems To Hate You', and 'More Than Anything'. It drew heavily on influences from a variety of sources as diverse as Trent Reznor, Prince, The Beatles, Jellyfish, Stone Temple Pilots, John Lennon, Lenny Kravitz and Paul McCartney & Wings. The album title "Life Inside Lucy' was a loose reference to the 'Lucy' in The Beatle's song 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds. This particular Beatle song has often been suggested to be a coded reference to LSD as John Lennon's visual lyrics created a surreal and imaginative world for its listener.
'Vinyl Sun' used this as a theme to tie the tracks from their album 'Life Inside Lucy' together by imagining how this fictional character from 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds' might view the world around her. 'Erotic Shock' was an inclusion on the album from a rare five song Ep that Vinyl Sun had released locally in Vancouver, Canada that had garnered much praise and radio support the previous year. The Ep was released under the name 'The Love Cats', which was the name the band had been using locally over the previous 5 years. With the completion of the bands first full length Cd, the band formally changed their name to 'Vinyl Sun'. Vinyl Sun ventured to take a unique path into the music industry after an opportunity to tour and perform in S.E.
Asia provided the incentive to introduce their album into foreign markets in Asia before introducing it into their own home markets of Canada and the U.S. The strains of intense touring in foreign markets created challenges that caused the first cracks in the bands long held relationships. A second album was recorded with a record company in Bangkok, Thailand to take advantage of the exposure that had been created for the band in an effort to tailor single releases specifically for that market. That second self-titled album remained unreleased due to legal and financial complications surrounding the record company in Thailand that had financed the album.
These complications have made tracks from that album a much sought after addition for Vinyl Sun fans. Some tracks from those sessions have surfaced on the net. The album track 'Angel' from their first album 'Life Inside Lucy' created a strong grass roots following that has lifted the track into a form of notoriety in many internet circles for its often found mislabeling as a 'Nine Inch Nails' song. Although this had helped in gaining exposure for Vinyl Sun and their unique sound, it has also created an identity crisis for a band that has seen a rise in popularity for a track that has been credited to a different artist.
'Angel' along with all of the songs from 'Life Inside Lucy' were composed, performed and produced by Vinyl Sun Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
