THE ORIGINAL LAS VEGAS PSYCHEDELIC EXPERIENCE
Down In The Hole, the 2020 release from Rhythm Affair, is a "Psychedelic Concept Album".
Down In The Hole is based on the true story of the 1962 Robena Mine disaster in Greene County PA.
This Rhythm Affair album details the psychosis developing in a young man as he grows up fatherless after the explosion.
On the bitter cold morning of December 6 1962 the day shift crew dropped in to shaft #3. A few hours later two explosions, 20 minutes apart, trapped and killed 37 of the miners. Any trapped men who had survived the first explosion soon were killed by the second.
The accident did little to slow activity at the mine but
in Greene County 65 children were now without a father.
This album tells the story of one child as he grows up in the shadow of his inevitable future ......... Working in the hole that killed his Dad!
Suffering from depression, and the onset of mental illness, this boy can't put the loss of his father to rest. Blaming the mining company, and haunted by "The Hole", he attempts to change his future as his mental state becomes increasingly untenable.
