    This is ridiculous music but to be fair it gets good 6 minutes in, fantastic bass line and guitar.

    It is weird that cable TV obsesses over these topics. I think that's mainly a puerile, tabloid thing - titillating, distracting, voyueristic fantasies of transgression & control.

    Beck is one as well, isn't he?

    It's always depressing when you find an actor or actress you like is a member - like Elizabeth Moss
    Youre at Scientology ground zero - is there much visible presence in LA? They want to build a European megachurch here.

    Forgot about this guy:





    Never got round to finding out too much about him but was filed under Jug Band and also Psychedelic Fascism.

    In 1966, Lyman founded and headed The Lyman Family, also known as The Fort Hill Community, centered in a few houses in the Fort Hill section of Roxbury, then a poor neighborhood of Boston. The Fort Hill Community, to observers in the mid-to-late Sixties, combined some of the outward forms of an urban hippie commune with a neo-transcendentalist[10] socio-spiritual structure centered on Lyman, the friends he had attracted and the large body of his music and writings.

    I think he was in Apocalypse Culture or something? I had this bit of his writing on my toilet door when I was a student:

    I am going to reduce everything that stands to rubble
    and then I am going to burn the rubble
    and then I am going to scatter the ashes
    and then maybe SOMEONE will be able to see SOMETHING as it really is

    that version of "people get ready" is really really cool.

    there seems to be a huge online archive Lyman stuff here: https://www.trussel.com/f_mel.htm

    Including a load of bits of his underground newspaper Avatar:
    https://www.trussel.com/lyman/avatar/avatar.htm

    This is quite neat as 30 years ago you had to send away huge amounts of cash to PO Boxes in the US to see poor photocopies of this stuff. (Which I think is how I got hold of some Process Church stuff eventually).

    You'd never guess that Thursday was a drinking night for me, would you?



    (This is basically Spacemen 3, mind.)

    Well pop-pickers it's time for us to switch over to http://www.sunuradiotv.com/baye-fall-fm/ for the night, so you all enjoy that shouting sufistic vibe while you burn midnight oil on this last night of ramadan and we'll be back at 8.30AM for ironing hour - our regular morning mix of opinion and hipster beats on dissensus channel (now part of disneycorp)
    don't touch that dial

    Nah I read that hardback one with the pink cover by the academic and the Stephen Sennitt one that came out in the late 80s. Which were both great but

    I lost interest in this stuff in the mid 90s... (that sounds really hipster, but it's true!).

    I quite fancy seeing that film about them though.
