L.S.U. (LifeSavers Underground) releases from The Vault Frontline Records, a subsidiary label of Meis Music Group, in collaboration with Michael Knott of Blonde Vinyl Records, is making three L.S.U. albums available digitally for the first time on October 15th from the Frontline Vault.

Lifesavers Underground (a.k.a.LSU, and L.S. Underground) was one of many Michael Knott projects. The sound combined elements of punk, post punk, funk and hard rock. In1987,Knott decided to take sunnier LifeSavers in a darker direction, both musically and lyrically and change the band name. Here's the story on three of those albums.

L.S.U. - This is the Healing
This album followed L.S.U.'s debut album on Frontline Records titled, Shaded Pain. This 1991 Blonde Vinyl release features Knott playing most of the instruments, including drum machine. The songs speak to holding on to hope in the midst of pain.

L.S.U. Lifesavers Underground - Wakin' Up the Dead
Blonde Vinyl Records put this out on cassette in 1989 and later re-mastered for its CD release in 1991. The album finds L.S.U. adding a slightly more alternative feel to their gothic hard rock sound.

L.S.U. Cash in Chaos - World Tour
With this release Knott announced that he was changing the name of L.S.U. to 'Cash in Chaos' and released it on his Siren Records label in 1993. It is another classic L.S.U., with dark, moody tunes.

All 3 are available on iTunes and other digital stores, including for "Frontline $5.99".
