The long overdue HEALTH LP will see the light of day next month! This limited edition (500), hand screened ditty will hits stores officially on Dec. 4 2007. Just in time for the holidays!
The band will have copies for their west coast tour in January 2008.
You'll need to contact your local store and make sure they're on order or head out to one of the shows to obtain this first pressing. Love Pump United will have some as well.
Thanks for your patience. Worth the wait!
We've posted an MP3 from the LP, come on by and give a listen.
"Healthy servings of tribal percussion, asymmetrical instrumentation, and animalistic curvatures make this band's noisy aggression effective, without the need for intelligible lyrics. The near-innocuous opening track of HEALTH's self-titled album, "Heaven," segues into the 36-second neurotic dissonance of "Girl Attorney," which picks up tempo on its transition into "Triceratops" -- a thrashing scourge of screeches, feedback, and gratuitous clanging reminiscent of Liars laced with a relief of a Deerhunter meditation. Not even six minutes into the album, and you are drawn into a mind-numbing sonic overload only sauntered by HEALTH's noisy predecessors." -SPIN.COM

Ladies and Gents-
Cold Sweat Records is proud to announce we will be re-issuing the amazing psych opus "Penetration, An Aquarian Symphony" by The Ya Ho Wa 13 this winter 2008.
For those un familiar.....Harkening back to 1972, time of the cult-occult-commune explosion. By day, the Source Family served organic cuisine to John Lennon, Julie Christie, Frank Zappa and others at the famed Source restaurant. By night, in a mansion in Hollywood Hills, they explored the cosmos through the channeled wisdom of their charismatic leader, Father Yod. Father was an outlandish figure who had 14 “spiritual wives,” drove a Rolls-Royce, and fronted the rock band Ya Ho Wa 13, now considered by collectors to be one of the most singular psychedelic bands of all time.
In conjunction with the launch of the new Process Media book The Source: The Untold Story of Father Yod, Ya Ho Wa 13, and The Source Family by Isis Aquarian, the author and a dozen original Source Family members from the legendary LA cult/commune will mark a return to Los Angeles in early November for rare live performances and book signings.
The two events mark the first public performance in thirty years of the Family’s legendary rock band Ya Ho Wa 13. The live music event at The Echoplex on November 16 will also feature the seminal proto-punk psychedelic garage rocker, Sky Saxon and The Seeds—Saxon was also a devoted “member of The Source
