    Recordings made by John Chick in Bali in 2009. Chick was one of the original members of the Bardo Matrix crew (along with Dana Young, Gregg Sharits and Craig Love) which was a psychedelic lightshow in Boulder, Colorado at first. In the early seventies he moved to Kathmandu where he started the Spirit Catcher bookstore, which sold booklets of poetry and traditional rice prints from temple rubbings. It was under this imprint Ira Cohen and Angus MacLise published their works. He also ran the first nightclub in Nepal. Later on he got busted for heroin and spent 6 years in prison in Bangkok. On these recordings he tells tales about encountering Janis Joplin, Wavy Gravy and the Magic Bus, Jim Morrison of The Doors and the Rose Mushroom Nightclub. Cover collage by Dana Young. Edition of 100 copies.
