Vivid Cloud / Lucky Din


Vivid Cloud / Lucky Din

LP $20.25


GY 3-2 

Grapefruit is a subscription-based record club now in its third year, founded by musician Simon Joyner and Ba Da Bing Records head Ben Goldberg to release exclusive, limited-edition, vinyl-only albums as part of an annual series, sharing identical cover art but in different colors. Subscribers receive an LP every three months, by artists that are of some renown, or are just getting started. The only connection between each group is that Joyner and Goldberg are both fans. Only 300 copies of each release are pressed—and for a limited time, these LPs are now available outside a direct subscription in extremely low quantities. 
The Renderizors is an off-shoot project from The Renderers, a New Zealand alt-country / rock / psych noisy band that emerged in the early 1990s based around the husband / wife songwriting team of Brian and Maryrose Crook. Together they have released seven albums and numerous singles and compilation tracks over the 20-something years. 
The Renderizors first came into being to describe a project with Nathan Thompson and James (T) Kirk of Sandoz Lab Technicians, one of the best experimental free noise exponents New Zealand offered at the time. They recorded an album between 2000 and 2001 and played five or six shows, including the big Dunedin Sound festival recorded by KFJC and broadcast by KFJC and WFMU. A triple-CD was issued by KFJC which featured several songs by each band (Plagal Grind, The Dead C, Snapper, etc.). 
This album was recorded with Sha Nonn and iRory (Creche) up at the old, (and now destroyed) High Street Project building in Christchurch in 2010, after playing support to Pink Reason on their New Zealand tour. The Vivid Cloud / Lucky Din name comes from the Crook’s stay in Beijing and the pieces are thematically linked. The album also includes a cover of “The Chinese Seas” written by friend, Charles Lieurance, and recorded by his band the Black Dahlias (not the big Canadian band of the same name) in the 1990s.
