I've posted some weird shit, no fooling, but this is the weirdest. Here, we have a religious separatist group from the western US who particularly have it in for rock'n'roll. So, they decide to banish it, in part, by speaking in tongues.
Side one has some cool shit, particularly where they teach followers how to have correct posture to resist the Satanic message of David Lee Roth. Or when they read the roll call of Satan-loving rock stars from about 1985 (Huey Lewis? Who knew?).
But the real gem is the 20+ minute ecstatic chant on the back side. The first couple minutes are so jarring, it seems more humorous than affecting. Then, you start to get sucked into the groove. The chants shift slowly, like a minimalist piano piece (but with 40 people speaking in monotone tongues).
That last piece is absolutely BEGGING to be sampled into a electronica record. I'm thinking probably tablas and sitar loops behind it. One of you guys who play that sampling sport needs to do this. Give me a co-writer credit, if you got any class.
Does anyone know if this cult still exists?
