Husband and wife team Johnima and Kalassu Wintergate are Lightstorm: globetrotting musical collaborators retransmitting messages of love from their teacher and Avatar Sathya Sai Baba: authentic 1970’s hippies on a spiritual space-journey. Most of the material gathered here was originally released on a small scale, so it is satisfying to see these oddities compiled and made available by Drag City.
Since 1973, the Lightstorm discography has been issued under a variety of aliases (Creation Earth, 331/3, Teeth) unknown to all but the most obsessed vinyl casualties. Insofar as the irrepressible J&K are known at all, it\'s for their twisted, ridiculously entertaining 1982 shot-on-video horror-comedy cult classic Boardinghouse. (See this movie!)
In conjunction with Yoga Records, we now present the first-ever Lightstorm collection! Creation fuses the best tracks from two distinct eras of Lighstorm, the spiritual concept double LP Who Am I: One (1977) and sensual glam rock killer 33 1/3. Eleven pieces of riveting, catchy, psych-glam-pop weirdness, Creation captures both these sides of Lightstorm, which will surely soothe your spirit and blow your energetic mind! Soar with "Let Your Astral Body Fly" and rut HARD with "Missionary Is Impossible." Creation is equal parts metaphysical and carnal!
To say that there's nothing else like Lightstorm would be an incredible understatement ! Their natural clear underlying love energy is unmistakable.
