Ya Ho Wa 13 Savage Sons Of Ya Ho Wa on LP
Fronted by Father Yod of the Source Family
Founded in 1973 in the Los Angeles area, Ya Ho Wa 13, is the psychedelic rock band fronted by Father Yod, spiritual leader of a religious cult/commune called the Source Family. The band recorded nine LPs of extreme psychedelia chock full of tribal drums and distorted guitars, some of which were completely unrehearsed jam sessions, others which contained more conventional rock songs. This, their 1974 album, Savage Sons of Ya Ho Wa brims with strong songs and righteous grooves - spiritual rock, with guttural intonations on its tongue and psychedelic blues and gospel in its soul!
