Ya Ho Wa 13 Vinyl, CD & tapes by Ya Ho Wa 13 at Norman Records
Ya Ho Wa 13 are quintessentially psychedelic. Recorded by members of The Source Family, a far out commune/cult of the type you always imagine when you think of when you picture early 70s cults, only without the enigmatic frontman and spiritual leader Father Yod. Heavily influenced by Neil Young, this is a more conventional record than their weirder LPs. On vinyl.
After the death of Father Yod in 1975, members of his Hollywood Hills spiritual commune and freeform psychedelic rock group Ya Ho Wha 13 were joined by Sky Saxon, the fromer frontman of The Seeds to become Fire Water Air. This is the first remastered reissue of the group's first release from 1977, packaged along with liner notes by Ya Ho Wha 13 mainstay, Djin Aquarian. In this era of commodified psyche-by-numbers, records like this ,which document the wild sounds of those early psychedelic explorers who really walked the walk, feel more vital than ever.
