The band changed members occasionally, morphing into various incarnations, from Father Yod and the Spirit of ’76 to Ya Ho Wha 13 to The Savage Sons of Ya Ho Wha, Yodship, and Fire Water Air; but the key players were always the same: (Djin Aquarian on guitar, Octavious Aquarian on drums, and Sunflower Aquarian on bass)."
Ya Ho Wha 13
"Members of The Source Family, who lived in the Hollywood Hills in the early 1970s, decided to fuse their musical talents and spirituality by forming an improvisational, psychedelic music group. They began to press LPs in 1973, most of which were recorded after hours of meditation at 3:00-6:00 a.m. in a soundproofed garage that served as the musicians’ studio at the family's communal residence. All of the records with Father Yod’s participation were completely improvised, with no rehearsals or overdubs. Most of the albums were pressed in small runs of only 500 to 1000 copies on the Higher Key label. They were sold to the general public in Father Yod’s popular vegetarian Source Restaurant for $10 each. Though only nine LPs were produced and released, it is rumored that more than 65 albums were recorded by the group but were lost over the years.
i am dying DYING dying to go to the psych fest in austin, texas in april. if only i had spare cash to spend on plane tickets. i'd rather go to it than coachella. seeeeriously. sigh.
Ya Ho Wha 13 is one of the bands that are playing?! i was obsessing over them last night- researching, wikipedia-ing, listening. i must get the book, their story sounds incredible. anyway, i just thought those pictures were insanely inspiring. hopefully you do too! (and isn't sunflower aquarian the most badass name?)
