Husband and wife team Johnima and Kalassu Wintergate
are Lightstorm: globetrotting musical collaborators
retransmitting messages of love from their teacher and
Avatar Sathya Sai Baba.
Since 1973, the Lightstorm discography has been issued
under a variety of aliases (Creation Earth, 33 1/3, Teeth)
unknown to all but the most obsessed vinyl casualties.
Insofar as the irrepressible J&K are known at all, it’s
for their twisted, ridiculously entertaining 1982 shot-onvideo
horror-comedy classic “Boardinghouse.”
(See this movie!)
The ever-unpredictable Drag City / Yoga Records now
present the first-ever Lightstorm collection. “Creation”
fuses the best tracks from the spiritual concept double
LP “Who Am I: One” (1977) and sensual glam rock killer
“33 1/3” (1980, recently featured in the “Enjoy The
Experience” private press book). Eleven pieces of riveting
catchy, psych-glam-weirdness, “Creation” captures both
sides of Lightstorm. Soar with ‘Let Your Astral Body Fly’,
and rut with ‘Missionary Is Impossible.’
To say that there’s nothing else like Lightstorm would be
an understatement, but their natural clear underlying love
energy is unmistakable. Experience “Creation.”
In the band’s own words:
Though fame was often within close reach for Lightstorm,
it never materialized on the world stage. The Divine
Energy as Creation had a different plan.
Their natural clear underlying love energy, which was
mostly due to Johnima’s and Kalassu’s deep personal inner
quest for absolute Spiritual Truth and unconditional Love,
always vibrated thru all musical renditions and it made
the executives unsure since they always worried about the
bottom line, ‘Lightstorm’s DOLLAR value.’
The “Creation Earth” album (which was just too far ahead
of its time) got a lot of late night airplay but it seemed
that its Spirituality Concept was not quite understood by
the average record buying public.
The “33 1/3” album became a turntable hit on various
radio stations all over the world, but the actual record
sales in the US were very slow; probably due to the
sensual overtones, which strangely enough, the Corporate,
Government and Religious establishments could not control.
Lightstorm continue to perform and travel the world
sharing love and light to remind everyone that we are
all-powerful Divine Beings and you too can share light and
love wherever you are.
