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.

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.

A other really good psychedelic band that seems to be lost to time is Spirit. The only time anyone talks about them is when the topic is on how Led Zeppelin "rip off" other peoples song. That aside every one here needs to get the album Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus

It is by far one of the best albums ever made.

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.

The Darkness are kind of a classic rock band, despite being a current band, so i though id put it here.

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."

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'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.

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.

Maybe. Don't know.....
Maybe it's just one you've looked over in the past when you've seen it in magazines and stuff? I would look through older mags for lists, but I'm not much of a buyer of them to be able to.

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.

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.

On another Love's Forever Changes being more recognized note, I was just surprised to see that album on the front display in Borders.

Also on another note, I'm getting that 4 CD Nuggets Box Set for Christmas Finally, after all these months, Original Artifacts of the First Psychedelic Era

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.

^ 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!

I love psychedelic stuff, psychedelic rock mostly. one of my favorite psychedelic songs would have to be "Careful with that Axe, Eugene" by Pink Floyd. Early Floyd back when they had the great Syd Barrett, one of the best psychedeic minds.
