In case you hadn't figured it out yourself, Hash Jar Tempo takes its name from the 70s krautrock group Ash Ra Tempel. Pretty funny, huh? This pretty much sums up the band: take that kraut sound and bring it to the future under the guise of epic-length drone, and you have Hash Jar Tempo. Despite the Hash part of the name, the music is not necessarily drug-influenced, but rather, just like with those old Germans, "the drug was the music." In other words, Hash Jar Tempo is less about seeing where altered states can take you, and more about creating those altered states.
