RIP Yma Sumac, Long Live Kenneth Anger

This cycle of album covers paints a vivid portrait, but here is more info.

I used to do a radio show of thrift-store exotica and among the ping-pong, peyote-in-the-pineapple music I would play, Yma Sumac was the wildest.

I always thought Yma Sumac would be perfect in a Kenneth Anger film.

Lucifer Rising by Kenneth Anger (approx 29 minutes)

Anger wrongly predicted his own death for Halloween 2008, so maybe there was a paperwork mess-up at Film Office of the Island of the Forbidden Volcano, out in the Lost Sea of the Abyss, and the spirit world called in Studs Terkel by mistake.
