THE THIRD EAR BAND first arrived on the scene in the mid-sixties as part of the whole underground movement. They were an experimental band using violins, oboe, cello, viola, and hand percussion instruments. They didn't play songs as such, but created extended instrumental pieces somewhat in the manner of some of TERRY RILEY'S work, best described as Electric Acid Raga. The THIRD EAR BAND reformed in the late eighties, still led by GLEN SWEENEY. This CD was originally released in 2005.
'The Hydrogen Jukebox' was the original name of the THIRD EAR BAND stolen from ALLEN GINSBERG.
