• ya ho wha 13 Sonic Portration (LP, £22.75)

    label: Prophase Music

    Back in the early '70s a curious group owned and operated a health food restaurant in Los Angles. The Source Family was a religious group of young people centred around the father figure of Father Yod, a WWII flying ace and spiritual searcher. This group of young people also performed improvisational music backing Father Yod under the name Ya Ho Wa 13. When Father Yod died in a hang gliding accident in 1975, the group dispersed. In 2007, with the publishing of a book about the Source Family, the original Ya Ho Wha 13 reunited for some shows and did some studio recordings. These are the long awaited results, the first studio recordings in over 30 years by Ya Ho Wa 13! Original members Djin, Octavius and Sunflower jam out like the ensuing years never happened. Incredible improv pieces with mind melting guitar and the psychedelic low end throb that all Yod fans will immediately recognize. Literally, the best reunion album of all time!
