The original band formed in California in 1965. Their name came  from a book title “The________of Perception”, which was based on a quote by William Blake.

Our song references looking for a certain someone in the city where the band was based.

This Canadian Shadow band’s style incorporates aspects of traditional Indian music including the sitar, tabla, and dilruba with Western psychedelic rock. Their name combines a large mammoth and a hard solid matter..or perhaps a large hard solid matter?
