LASERS AND GUMDROPS

It is the twenty-third century. Logan’s world is no more. The survivors of the Domed City found their way to a new life…they found their way to Sanctuary. A place where new ways could mingle with the old, where pleasure could be found in entirely new ways.
But the creators of Carrousel, the architects of Renewal, had already seen to it that a new life would not be possible. They had inserted a lethal chromosomal biotech agent into each and every pre-born in the Domed City, a biological time bomb that insured that no one born there would live past the age of forty. When Logan and the elders of Sanctuary become gravely ill, they pin their hopes on Ian, another former Sandman to find a cure beyond the outskirts of Sanctuary. According to legend, the insane cortico-computer matrix of the Domed City known as YHWH had created an antidote found only in a highly synthesized strain of silver fruit that was rumored to exist somewhere on the planet’s surface…
Inspired by a Seventies post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller, Roger Joseph Manning Jr. and Brian Reitzell painstakingly created the soundtrack to it’s imaginary sequel. – The album’s futuristic cover art was designed by Mike Mills who is best known for his work with Air, Beastie Boys and Pulp. Logan’s Sanctuary features Jason Falkner (Jellyfish, solo artist), who does his best Scott Walker croon on the album’s main theme.
The record was recorded with vintage instruments to create authentic sounds from that era. End the search for Sanctuary at [ www.emperornorton.com ]
