Magnificence in the Memory
(Drag City) LP $15.00 (Out-of-stock)
Nine tracks that freak out, whisper funk, scream, stomp, and storm with abandon, always on the first and only take take. The capacity of their riffs and grooves to mimic German prog bands of the same era, psychedelic rock bands of several years previous or the as-yet-uncreated avant sounds from the indie rock movement a decade away is evidence of their connection to the source of human inspiration itself.
Penetration - An Aquarian Symphony
(Tee Pee - TP083) LP $15.00 (Out-of-stock)
Tripped out, divinely inspired, totally improvised, considered their best release if for no other reason that its capture of the intensity and glory of Krautrock.
(Prophase - PMLP9991) LP $20.00 (Out-of-stock)
Back in the early '70s, The Source Family owned and operated a health food restaurant in Los Angeles, and were centered around Father Yod -- WWII flying ace, spiritual searcher, and leader of improvisational music-making under the name Yahowa 13. When Yod died in a hang gliding accident in 1975, the group dispersed. In 2007, with the publication of a book about The Source Family, the original Yahowa 13 reunited for live shows and studio recordings, the first in over 30 years. Here, original members Djin, Octavius and Sunflower jam out as if the ensuing years never happened (they didn't; time is an illusion). Mind-melting guitar and the psychedelic low end throb that Yod fans immediately recognize. Edition of 500
