Books scattered in the back of my neighbors Volvo, inneresting reading list.
In all the madness of last week, the passing of Sky Saxon skipped my radar. Post-Seeds, Sky was part of Ya Ho Wah 13 and moved to Hawaii with the source family, his ashes are headed back there.
The Seeds- They were one of those great bands that were terrible. Didn't matter- their records cooked. "Mr. Farmer"- that's a good one, man. Neil Young.
A survey Agnes Varda films is screening this week at the Aero in Santa Monica, including Q+A sessions with Varda herself. We saw Jacquot De Nates last night paired with Uncle Janco, a short film about Varda's uncle living in the houseboat community in Sausolito in the late 60's, beautiful and worth tracking down. Thanks Matty for the tip.
Source Family guru and Ya Ho Wah 13 screamer Father Yod, beard envy rivaling Lawrence Weiner and Ned Kelly here, the swimming lesson looks inneresting too. Drag City is about to reissue a Yo Wa Ha 13 record, Magnificence In The Memory not sure if it's different material to the records already in circulation, but worth a look/listen. The untold story of Father Yod, Ya Ho Wah 13 and The Source Family by Isis Aquarian here.
