Bluegrass Jesus and the Karma Police

The Mel Lyman Family started as a group of bluegrass musicians and LSD aficionados who broke away from the liberal-hippie ethos of the 1960s to create a conservative community, in which adversity was served up with a healthy portion of sexism, hallucinogens, hard work, and severe discipline. Their main objective was to serve their leader, the bluegrass harmonica player who claimed to be God, Mel Lyman.
