Gods on Voodoo Moon is the first recording and release by White Zombie, released as an EP in 1985 under their own indie label Silent Explosion. It was their only release with Paul "ENA" Kostabi on guitar and Peter Landau on drums

Production[edit]

The six songs, including "Black Friday" and "Dead or Alive", were all recorded in one session and in one take each.[1]

Release and reception[edit]

The EP was first released only on vinyl. The songs "Black Friday" & "Dead Or Alive" were recorded during the same sessions but were excluded from the vinyl pressings due to lack of space. A cassette version was released in 1989 on Caroline Records featuring the two unreleased tracks. Because the lack of funds at the time only 300 copies of vinyl were pressed at Macola Records Hollywood, California, 100 of which were sold while the others are in the possession of the band members.[1]
