A tribute to Mike Stax' incredibly affecting book of the same name, about the many incarnations of sunshine pop singer/songwriter/acid casualty Craig Smith AKA Maitreya Kali. The mix contains music by Craig Smith and his various acts but also music from his immediate milieu - his collaborators, artists who covered his work etc. The book is more than a biography, it is a musical mystery with Ugly Things editor Mike Stax as detective and disciple. And more. The last chapter killed me. Get it from Feral House publishing here:

Kier-La, I just read this book. Honestly, one of the best music books I've ever read.
