The Holy Modal Rounders are a band that my Dad has loved for as long as I can remember. As he grew older and focused more on his own music, he ended up becoming quite good friends with the band. When I was in high school, they filmed a portion of their documentary in our basement. It was quite the scene, I wish I could back back and appreciate it fully as an adult. Steve Weber (picture, singing) used to attend our family holidays, as my Dad became a close friend. Peter Stampfel is still in touch, he just put out a record with Jeffrey Lewis (think, Moldy Peaches) The music makes me feel happy and strange. They were pioneers of the psychedelic folk scene.
