Yes, I know we have had a psychedelia thread, started by me, but this is more of a discussion and appreciation sort of thing. I'm also hoping that there are some people on this board that are really into psychedelia and that some have unknown bands that they can enlighten us with.


Edit: Here is a list of all the relatively unknown Psychedelic bands that have been mentioned or added by me. I believe that it is legal to do CD Trades with such bands because most are rare/quite hard to find. I have almost all of them, but I am usually away from my computer when I'm messaged. Either that or I'm very busy with schoolwork. I suggest if you want a lot of these, to get the downloading program Soulseek, no spyware, has very rare albums. It's a godsend.

Fav songs:

Its kind of sad over here in Australia you can get Country Joe and the fish shirts at the trendy clothing stores, which pisses me off when I see people wearing them but have never heard any of their music...

Forever Changes is just starting to get recognized, I've noticed. By people and publications alike. It really is just one of the greatest albums. Rarely is there an album like that where each song that good (With the exception of Andmoreagain, I don't like that one too much). I also have Love and Da Capo, which are also pretty good. Da Capo has a very raw sound that I like, but Forever Changes is still their crowning achievement.

As for the Elevators, I don't listen to them as much as I used to. However, my favorite song still is "You Don't Know" off their first album.

I can't say I'd completely agree. 'Alone again or' was quite a big song when it came out and is surprisingly well known. Don't know if so many people got the album, but it's just one of those hidden gems, like a load of the great underground folk acts of the '70s created.
If you want psychedelia stuff, there's a box set called 'Children Of Nuggets - Original Artyfacts From The Second Psychedelic Era 1976-1995' which came out a week or two ago. I really wanted it for Christmas but I don't think I'm going to get it at this rate.

I love Phsychedelic music but its so hard to find good records... Would you guys consider The Velvet Underground Phsychedelic? I love that one song Murder Mystery any album suggestions?

I would love some Soft Machine suggestions aswell I love the music they did with Syd Barrett on the Madcap Laughs. I have the Phsychedelic Sound of the 13th Floor Elevators aswell and it's pretty good.

12-17-2005, 01:07 PM
the only two bands I have heard of that you mentioned are the 13th Floor Elevators, and Soft Machine.

I love that whole jug thing the 13th Floor Elevators do, just love it. You're Gonna Miss Me is an amazing song too. Although much of the music I have by them is poor quality, sadly.

As for Soft Machine, I've never heard anything by them, but I do know that they did something with Syd Barrett, as Stula already said. Would love an album suggestion there.

I would say that they're phsychedelic, but a diffrent kind of phsychedelic. Drak phsychedelic is what I'd call them. Go with the "The Velvet Underground & Nico" album or "White Light/White Heat."

frippogenics
12-17-2005, 03:11 PM

Yeah, Love was pretty well known back in its day. But only recently have I seen it getting mentions as one of the best albums in publications, and I just started meeting people who have it. Maybe it's just a coincidence.

As for those who wanted a Soft Machine suggestion, I'd recommend Volume One as a start(which I have available for a CD trade ;) ). It's prog rock that pre-dates In The Court Of The Crimson King, but it is very psychedelic. The music is very odd and it takes a bit to grow on you, but the album is fantastic.

Edit:

I love Phsychedelic music but its so hard to find good records... Would you guys consider The Velvet Underground Phsychedelic? I love that one song Murder Mystery any album suggestions?

I'd say that they're avant-garde/proto-punk. But I do love that band, so we can discuss them here, because they won't get talked about anywhere else.

As said above me, Velvet Underground and Nico or White Light/White Heat, the latter being the more challenging record.

Variable
12-17-2005, 03:21 PM
I think Love is better known in England now than it is over here (America). Ironic because the band's from LA and never really toured too far outside there until recently. I found this fantastic DVD of a concert of the whole Forever Changes album, but the only original band member who's there is Arthur Lee. Still a good concert.

Also, Velvet Underground & Nico is a great album.

I used to have this video of the closing of the fillmore. It had the Dead and a bunch of bands. Quicksilver Messenger Service was on there and they kicked serious ass. I bought a couple vinyl LP's and they were nothing compared to the footage on that video. They were really underrated and still are. I've got one bootleg from 06-07-68 @ the Fillmore. I haven't listened in a while but I used to love it. How about Moby Grape? I used to teach guitar to this girl who knew the drummer from Moby Grape.

AMajesticalTune
12-20-2005, 10:17 AM
Gong, Hawkwind or Focus, anyone?
These are three great Psychadelic Progressive bands. Hawkwind leans really more to the Hard-Progressive-Rock with tons of a Psychadelia influence, while Gong and Focus psychadelic progressive jazz. Great bands here, I highly reccomend "Angels Egg" by Gong, "Space Ritual" by Hawkwind (featuring a young, and more capable Lemmy Kilmister), and Focus II by Focus

Yes, QMS and Moby Grape are both amazing. Moby Grape's album in particular is one of the best of the era. But QMS's Happy Trails is a very good one too. They were at their best when they were live.

I also feel I have to plug the album Shazam by The Move. If anyone likes hard rock/psychedelia/prog rock should check that out. It's one of my favorites.

Soft Machine was big in London about the same time Pink Floyd were starting out and they played shows together. H.P Lovecraft played with the Floyd too at the Fillmore one time... back in the late 60s... other than those two, I've never heard of any of those.

I recently got that on vinyl. Not the box set just the first album. I think the nuggets stuff on cd actually is different.

You should definitly check out cold sun. Theyre from austin like the elevators, and took influence off them. They later formed the aliens, which was the backing band for roky erickson. The aliens are them just without one member or somthing. They recorded their album in 69, but it was never released until a limited run on cd recenttly. You can probably find there stuff on a sharing program though. If not i can send it to you.

frippogenics
01-18-2006, 07:22 PM
^ Cold Sun seems relatively unknown. It's not even on allmusic.com. Is the album called Dark Shadows (just to make sure I have the correct band).

Also, I'm going to list, on the first post, all of the psychedelia bands that I have and have been mentioned on this thread. Get them!

Totally agree with #1, my favorite album ever, theres just something so special about it and I never get tired of hearing the album. Ive some of the others, need to get some of it though, I accually burned that Arzachel album, and then threw on some tracks from Goblin's Dawn of the Dead movie score, pretty weird...


Another great one is Spirit's self titled debut, you ever hear that one fripogenics?

frippogenics
01-29-2006, 09:47 PM

I made it a point to put "relatively unknown" rather than obscure in many cases. How many do you know these days have heard of Big Brother And The Holding Company?

Another great one is Spirit's self titled debut, you ever hear that one fripogenics?

I think it's pretty good, but no tracks really stand out as greats to me (besides I do really like Water Woman). I've only listened to the whole thing like twice though.

has anyone heard of The Paper Garden? they're suppose to be a really good psychedelic band. my friend has their debut (and only) album and he said it's in the same vein as Sgt. Peppers. has anyone heard/checked them out before?

I just got the Paper Garden. A lot of the songs are a little too bubblegum pop for me, rather than psychedelia. I can listen to about half the songs, and some of them are quite good. The other half just annoy me though.

Amon Düül II's first album, Phallus Dei, was psychadelic, but then they became more Progish in later releases. They still kept a slightly psychadelic sound, though. (eg Yeti)

frippogenics

^^ Amon Duul II were great. I do enjoy the German prog of that era. The last couple of days I've been trying to decide between buying a Kaputter Hamster or a Erlkoenig album - too expensive for both, but both sound great...

Anyway, from that list on the first page, ones I've heard of an have enjoyed...

Love rock. My band's covering 7 and 7 Is at our next show.

I just got The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators... what a fantastic album. So much raw energy.

As far as the Velvet Underground go, I wouldn't particularly consider them psychedelic. Sure, some of their music can be associated with the drug experience, but you can say the same for Dylan, but no one would call him psychedelic, right?

The Troggs, anyone? More garage rock than anything, but still pretty trippy.

08-15-2006, 10:51 PM
Big Brother and the Holding Company is relatively unknown now? Most of those bands are fairly well known.
Even though well known and documented, Miles Davis' ventures into psychedelic kinds of music is under-rated. John Coltrane too.

08-15-2006, 10:59 PM
Ok one other band not mentioned is the Electric Prunes. They have the song "I had to much to dream last night" but they are an awesome psych. band

Another GREAT modern pyschedelic band is DEAD MEADOW, they are off matador records and are probably the besy psychedelic band playing today.

Do yourself a favor and check them out

oh yea on another topic. The 13th floor elevators from my hometown Austin Tx, and Roky Erickson the lead singer plays around town still with his band the explosives... Ive seen him a couple times at SXSW and around, even met him once.

Really awesome band and guy.

TheHeartbreaker
08-16-2006, 10:16 AM
Quicksilver Messenger Service is ****ing awesome.

John Cipollina was simply an amazing guitarist, and they trully are very overlooked because they came out of the same area as big bands such as The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, and Moby Grape - among others.

Also, there's this great Box Set (there might even be two of them) called Nuggets, which is basically a large collection of various songs from garage psychedellic bands from the 60s (and maybe even 70s).

It's pretty awesome, but it might be a bit expensive.

I think there should be more recognition of Hawkwind. Although they were only in the spotlight for a brief couple years. The In search of space to Warriors albums influenced a lot of popular music. They were a proto punk psychedelic/progressive band(what a mix!). I highly suggest you either check out Space Ritual or Warriors on The Edge of Time.(the latter hard to find on CD).

Nuggets (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuggets:_Original_Artyfacts_from_the_First_Psychedelic_Era%2C_1965-1968) is what you need. Four CDs of America's premiere unknown garage rock and psychedelic bands.

And Nuggets II (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuggets_II:_Original_Artyfacts_from_the_British_Empire_and_Beyond%2C_1964-1969) will satisfy your desires for British psychedelia.




But that said, I think the greatest psychedelic band to come out of America was The Misunderstood. Followed closely by 13th Floor Elevators, Love, and Strawberry Alarm Clock

I adore good psychedelic music and have went on for years hunting for good records. I came across a great Internet radio station known as 'The Crawlspace' which airs for 4 hours on Wednesday nights from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM Central Time. They plays loads of rare psychedelic material, plus old garage rock and the ilk. Their website is www.takilmafm.com and I highly recommend checking it out!

I got a great book recently called "Unknown Legends of Rock n Roll" and it came with a CD. It's major focus is obscure 60s garage/ psychedelic bands like The Mystic Tide, the Chocolate Watch Band, The Blossom Toes, etc. It's by Richie Unterberger, if anyone is interested in getting it, but the book looks as obscure as the bands. It was the only copy I could find in Borders; check it out if you want.

Just in case...Jefferson Airplane.

They started me on music, they started me on drugs and they have dozens of beautiful, beautiful songs.

I really wouldn't call them underground though...they were/are pretty popular.
