Red Temple Spirits was a post punk band from Los Angeles formed in 1987. They created hallucinating music influenced by 60's psychedelia and 80's dark wave!
You can easily trace Roky Erickson and Pink Floyd together with Cure and Savage Republic in their music but the personality of the band is strong enough to create their own wonderful style. This record ends with a breathtaking version of "Set the controls for the heart of the sun", the psych mastepiece of Pink Floyd.
Their genius mix of psychedelia and gothic rock was also melded with Native American (in their first record) and Tibetan mysticism (in this one).
They had only two LPs ("Dancing to restore an eclipsed moon" in 1988 and "If tomorrow i were leaving for Lhasa i wouldn't stay a minute more..." in 1989), and one single ("New Land/ Exodus from Lhasa" in 1989) but these were enough to keep the legend of the band alive through the decades.
