Sounds of the F’ing Mothership

Sound of the Mothership Cass.
God Damn. This is my hand.  That is my tape and that shit was sealed.  I looked all over the place for this cassette. A few weeks back I found some cheesy website in the UK, a new age shop that had a pretty big catalog of shit. Check it out: http://www.discord.co.uk/. They listed that they were selling David Parson’s Sound of the Mothership on tape, so I took my chances. I didn’t think I’d really get the cassette, but then they got my hopes up after contacting me to inform me that I was in fact ordering a cassette. It arrived in the mail today and I’m going to fucking celebrate with beer. Cheers.

The Raag…

Loosing touch on Lark in the Morning’s site where I found that video. I’ve really grown to love the sound of the sitar. And that reminds this dude:
David Parsons in 1977
David Parsons.  Former ad exec turned new age after seeing Ravi Shankar perform. He quits his job, goes to India, studies sitar, then buys a synth. Bouncing tracks back and forth on a tape machine, he came up with Sounds of the Mothership. Thanks Jeff! Actually, you should check out his blog: Avant Ghetto – it’s still there, dubbed from cassette.
