Ed Yazijian aka Dr. E'weerd Yijji should be known for his work with musicians like Dredd Foole and Pete Prescott (Mission of Burma, Volcano Suns) and many others (not to mention occasional live performances with Sun City Girls). His first solo release is titled Six Ways to Avoid the Evil Eye, based in rhythmic/percussive ritual in a way that more immediately brings to mind the rain of stones that defines much of the Angus MacLise back catalog. There's a heavy, devotional air to much of the activity that speaks of personal trance as eloquently as the works of Alice Coltrane, albeit transposed to a much more punk primitive palette of hand-drums, bows and traditional acoustic drones.
