- To the Principle For The Children by Ya Ho Wha (YaHoWha)
We've just taken a shipment of loads of incredibly reasonably priced vinyl and CD pertaining to the musical output of Father Yod so although this is old business it's certainly good business and well worth us rubbing your nose in via this short overview. Basically all these releases taken together represent a small portion of the sounds recorded (generally in VERY lo-fi fashion) by Father Yod and the musical wing of his Source Family cult who specialised in meandering, freeform psychedelic rock type jams, often with the Father's manic vocalising over the top. Whatever else the cult specialised in I wouldn't like to speculate.. Some reports make the whole thing sound pretty harmless and others give a bit of a sinister impression. The artwork on some of these probably isn't helping, to be fair. The bands tended to feature musicians of vastly varying skill (and non-skill) levels and that's totally part of their charm, although the one I happen to have picked up here (purely because I'd not heard it before and it's supposed to be a particularly good 'un) is about as pro as any I've heard. In any case, it's great stuff on the whole and the prices they're all in at make them completely 'dip your toe in'-worthy for any curious types..
