    Khun Narin's Electric Phin Band

    It all started over a year ago with the caption "MINDBLOWING PSYCHEDELIA FROM THAILAND"-the Youtube video that accompanied this headline on the Dangerous Minds Blog was exactly that. Here was a group of Thai
    musicians being filmed parading through a remote village hundreds of miles
    away from Bangkok playing some of the heaviest Psych known to mankind out
    of a crazy homemade soundsystem. Who were these men and how on earth was
    this not some unearthed archived footage from the '60s or '70s?! The Youtube
    clip quickly made its rounds amongst music enthusiasts leaving many in the
    Western hemisphere to question who this group of contemporary Thai villagers
    (loosely named Khun Narin's Electric Phin Band) was.


    Six months after that first encounter with Khun Narin's Electric Phin Band, a
    Los Angeles music producer named Josh Marcy used Facebook and some unlikely interpreters at his local Thai restaurant to get in contact with the band and
    inquire whether they'd be interested in having him travel to their town to record
    their music for a global audience. At first the band was naturally suspicious, but
    through subsequent interactions the group's leader and namesake Khun Narin
    (also known simply as "Rin") warmed to the idea of having Marcy come visit.
    And so began the journey of uncovering who these mysterious men from an
    obscure blog post actually were.


    Khun Narin's Electric Phin Band's membership is always in rotation and spans
    several generations, from high school kids to men well into their 60s. A standard
    engagement has the band setting up at the hosting household during the morning rituals, playing several low-key sets from the comfort of plastic lawn chairs
    occasionally working in a cover version of a foreign classic (The Cranberries
    'Zombie' is a recent favorite) while the beer and whiskey flow freely. After a
    mid-day banquet, they start up the generator and lead a parade through the community to the local temple, picking up more and more partiers along the way
