The Ra-Dawn Sun Cult was a project that lasted between Fall 2007 and Winter 2008. The project was basically headed by myself, Ryan Kirk, and Daniel Miller. Occasionally we would get together chant and drone out. This project reached its climax when we got to open for Nadja, and the Shearing Pinx at the Obey Convention II. The Cult had 9 members strong at the time, we all donned robes and face paint, and covered "Sunshine Girl" by Faust and "We Will Fall" by the Stooges, interspersed with freely improvised vocal chants, oh ya, we also had a pigs head with insense burning from it's nose, it was pretty bad ass. Anyways, we made a CD-R, did some artwork, and tried to sell some of them, I don't think we had much luck, so I am releasing it as Avant-Lard's first digital download release. I hope you enjoy it!
