The Incredible String Band

I first ran across [the] ISB in 1970. A friend turned me on to Wee Tam and The Big Huge. They stuck to the inside of my skull like a surrealistic version of the Sistine Chapple ceiling, immediately and permanently. I love those people. I love what they did. I love what they continue to do. Hell, I even named my cat Sir Primalform Magnifico.

Sadly (or not), I've never seen them live. But I'm not sure that makes the slightest bit of difference one way or another. Like all good art, their work becomes a state of mind, and those who allow that to happen are always better off for the experience. Yet it's a state of mind I find difficult to define. So I keep asking myself (in the editorial "we"), "What is it that we are part of? And what is it that we are?"

I heard today they were reforming and one of the girls can't be found. I guess it must be her?
My wife turned me on to these guys in 1970, now I'm divorced and she took all their LPs with her. They remind me of her but I stll think I'll get them again as they are so good. I like "This Moment".

Wonderful memories from the 70s. But is the band active today?
