Smog Veil Records announces the Platters du Cuyahoga series with a trio of releases. First up is the new X___X album titled, Albert Ayler’s Ghosts Live at the Yellow Ghetto, available in digital format as well as CD and vinyl LP.  The LP version of this release is on blue vinyl with lock grooves at the end of both sides of the record and also includes a digital download of the songs.

X___X was formed by John D Morton (electric eels) in Cleveland, Ohio in 1978. The New York Times recently featured the band explaining "back in the early 1970s, with only the Stooges and the Velvet Underground as role models, [Morton] and his colleagues turned their youthful alienation into a brazenly experimental, loudly confrontational and proudly antisocial roar that forged a new and distinct style.”  Jon Savage described this record as “mean sounds that make your feet move."  This 8-song release represents the band's first new recordings in more than 30 years.
