about

Tri-coastal psychic rock ensemble DWLVS present THE COMPLEAT TRANCING MASTER. We want you to get out of your heads. Originally a wee collection of hard to find compilation tracks, but then gobs of previously un-heard live jammers were piled on. All hand-selected for maximum wig blowing. It soon grew to be a three-disc set. WOW you betcha: 172 minutes of crispy headers including covers of Faust and The Clean, not to mention the elusive studio recording of Earth Rising Earth part 2 !! (ERE parts 1 + 3 were released by Sloow Tapes on the Drumbar and Basspear cassette). I might add a super-rare live recording of ERE part 2, if I can find the tape. Oh shit - bonus track !

UPDATE: I found it ! bonus track added... the one and only live performance of Earth Rising Earth (part 2) is now added as a download-only bonus ... track 17. Live at the Hemlock in SF from 2015. * it does not appear on the CD versions, ok.
