Founded in Austin, Texas in 1967 by violinist/vocalist Spencer Perskin. Susan Perskin (vocals/percussion), Bob Tonreid (guitar), Kenny Parker (bass) and Jerry Barnett (drums) completed the original line-up which was buoyed the following year with the addition of Shawn Siegal (keyboards). The sextet completed their debut single, ‘Kaleidoscoptic’, before moving to San Francisco to record Take Me To The Mountains. Robert Gladwin and Richard Finnel replaced Tonreid and Barnett prior to recording, but the group remained a vehicle for Perskin’s violin dexterity and his frazzled vision of psychedelic country. Shiva’s Headband then returned to Texas where a revitalized line-up completed Comin’ To A Head, before becoming an integral part of the state’s vibrant live circuit. Spencer Perskin continued to lead the group into the 80s, although his wife Susan and Shawn Siegal were the only members to remain from the 1968 line-up.
