More Info:

Dancing to Restore an Eclipsed Moon is the debut studio album of American post-punk band Red Temple Spirits. It was released in 1988 on the Nate Starkman & Son label, a subsidiary of Fundamental. Rock critic Piero Scaruffi praised the album, calling it a "ponderous masterpiece" and writing, "The extravagant mysticism [...] had few or no precedents. It rehashed emotional debris left buried under the cosmic and ritualistic hymn of 'Interstellar Overdrive,' under the psychotic and metaphysical melodrama of 'The End,' under the apocalyptic frenzy of 'Sister Ray,' while scouring medieval fairy tales, Tibetan mantras, whirling sufi dances and gothic ballads for intimations of supernatural existence." L.A.'s Red Temple Spirits perform ritualistic, droning post-punk soundscapes augmented by tribal drumming, '60s psychedelia, and a (new age) spiritual sensibility courtesy of British emigré and frontman William Faircloth, fresh off of an EP with Ministry Of Love. The band also features guitarist Dallas Taylor and bassist Dino Paredes, a former member of Perry Farrell's pre-Jane's Addiction band Psi Com. Los Angeles-based Red Temple Spirits were prophets and shamen, ritualistic healers musically exploring an entirely new world. Pulsating psychedelic sonics meet mesmerizing mysticism, comprising intense spiritual, tribal, primitive imagery. Formed in early 1987, the band has released two albums via Nate & Starkman Son Records (distributed by Fundamental) and disbanded in 1993. Limited edition of 500 copies, no repress. RSD 2014 exclusive. Long-time no repress vinyl version. Strongly recommended for fans of The Cure, Savage Republic, Pink Floyd, and Christian Death.
