KSE is proud to bring you a raw 40-minute live performance from two of the greats of higher-key psychedelia: from the West Coast, the legendary DJIN AQUARIAN of Ya Ho Wha 13 and the Source Family, and from Chicago, the legendary Sir Plastic Crimewave, with a killer organic rhythm section. Sounding like some non-existent Skydog boot of Ya Ho Wha in their prime (minus Father Yod, of course, though his spirit is certainly in every note), this is music as  spiritual practice and ritual. You can’t fake or pre-plan this kind of music. You have to get into that zone, that sacred space, and explore. It grows, slowly, it evolves, it sinks roots and extends its branches, it pulls you in and gets all over you until you are one with the music. In some ways, this is the purest kind of psychedelic music, and it’s great to say that this new album has the same dense organic tribal sound as the Aquarian/PCW duo album on Prophase, but this has the added benefit of being ABSOLUTELY LIVE,  with the audience sounds and distortion that only a live performance can deliver. Again, this is an archival recording made on non-professional equipment, but so was METALLIC KO…

djin pcw everafter r6I was privileged to see the re-formed Ya Ho Wha 13 in concert in Austin a few years ago (my pic of Djin is below), and it was the ultimate lift-the-bandstand higherkey psych jam, and I grew up listening often to a cassette of their 1974 classic PENETRATION that a friend who was fortunate enough to own a copy made for me, so KSE is honored to keep the circle unbroken and present you ANOTHER album in that great tradition of spiritual travel through cosmic music…
