Blonde Vinyl Memorial
Ethereal Soul
Ethereal Soul was a heavy, funky, alternative band that was signed to Blonde Vinyl, but never got a chance to record. A few labels wanted to sign Ethereal Soul, but they decided to go with Blonde Vinyl because BV offered better contracts than most other labels did at the time. According to Jeremy Walla, they were on their way to record their Blonde Vinyl debut when they got a call from Michael Knott telling them that Blonde Vinyl had gone bankrupt. They continued on as a band, releasing two full length independent albums before calling it a day. Ethereal Soul gained wider attention when Jeremy Walla joined Dig Hay Zoose as a second guitarist on a national tour in 1994.   Ethereal Soul

Other Information:
Demo that got them signed to Blonde Vinyl. Ethereal Soul was Abhor Evil originally, and they had a song on an R.E.X. sampler. They had offers from Blonde Vinyl and R.E.X. at the time. Mike Knott was a hero of the band, and Blonde Vinyl had better percentages. Knott hated the band name though, so it was changed to Ethereal Soul. The band was 15 when we had started Abhor Evil and were 17 by then time they signed.
