A few sporadic blips on the world wide web detailed last month’s discovery of a previously uncharted mass of dense Chicago space rock. Despite this lack of awareness, a galaxy of mail-order customers managed to blast through our modest pressing at the speed of light. A few remain, but who could have imagined this wasted masterpiece would find its fan base immediately?
If we could, we would put records like The Waves Of Evernow out every month. But how do you create such energy? In the case of the long-haired organ trio pictured, the answer involves a payload of tape delay units, modified amplifiers, and a nebulous songbook, all lowered into a concrete bunker beneath 5428 South Blackstone in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood. The results, to say the least, are worth sharing.
As a bonus, each purchase includes a download code, unlocking not only digital incarnations of The Waves Of Evernow, but a soundboard recording of the band’s final performance at the Metaphysical Festival, held at the Headquarters of the Theosophical Society of Wheaton, Illinois on July 22nd, 1973. This performance features Dennis Gray on drums and the addition of a fourth member—Xohm (Mike Kelly) on oscillators and other sound effects.
