Boomkat Product Review:
Sexy hippies! Novelty disco! New Age schmaltz! screams the cover of Lightstorm’s first ever compilation, Creation, dug out for (*in Steven Toast voice*) your pleasurrrre by Drag City.
Surrounding the husband/wife duo Johnema and Kalassu Wintergate (that’s them on the cover in some google dream-style thizz), Light Storm have been at it since the ‘60s, and despite touring worldwide, wider fame has unfortunately eluded them.
Nearly 50 years on, Drag City recognise their worth with a yin/yang showcase of their opposing forces, drawing from the spiritualised Creation Earth: Who Am I album as One, and their kinkier, self-titled 33 1/3 set, which is the kind of record you’d expect Alan Partridge to hide behind the corby for special occasions.
Frankly, it’s f**king hilarious but also packs enough down below to make the ‘floor move - just check out Missionary Is Impossible - and heck, it’s even worth it for the cover art alone.
