Eric, do you have the 1st Mayo Thompson? I think it's from '70 or '71, and it's great. Drag City reissued it, I think. "Corky's Debt to His Father." is the title..

acid mothers temple was one of the best shows i've ever seen.
dmbq changed the way i think about psychedelic music and song structure.

.....I don't know my psych....

http://midnightrecords.com/psych2.html

If yer interested (at all) we made this list when I worked at Midnight. I wouldn't call it all "essential." It was made with the thought that you like SF Sorrow, Pebbles, 13th Floor already and wanted to hear some more obscure shit.

Also, it's all reissued stuff, and a lot of the best has yet to be reissued.

You can find some of it first on the dreaded SoulSeek and see if ya like it enough to hunt it down.

Then again, saying you don't know your psych might be because you absolutely hate it and have successfully avoided it. Which might be good, because a lot of the good stuff is wayyy too expensive.

THTX - psych prog from Matthew Smith of Outrageous Cherry
Posted: Aug 24, 2005 4:04 am
 
i listened to the Beach Boys SUNFLOWER the other day... three times in a row. It was freaking me out.

Psych top 5 for me (besides Aldo Nova & Billy Squier, who are both uber-psych or something)

13th floor elevators
Butthole Surfers
Boredoms
Sun Ra
Throbbing Gristle

and Oneida's WALK INTO THE LIGHT has to be mentioned. Also the 1st red krayola... WAR SUCKS! and Moondog and 1st 3 Funkadelic.

i got some record put out by the Kansas City (???) library in the early 70s called POETRY OUT LOUD and it's poetry read/sung over echoed bongos/chanting and it's GREAT.

that's what i thought psychedelic music was when i was a kid- nothing like the "regular" music i was hearing on the radio. turned out it was pretty much the same thing. bummer.

I feel ya

I can remember seeing all those pictures of the wacky haircuts and clothes and knowing that the people who made this were making stuff that was even more unhinged than "Kinko the Clown" or "The Brainiacs versus the Maniacs" on the Dr Demento show. Then I heard it and well let's just say that Wendy O in a whipped cream top chainsawing a television was more interesting than the actual music to this pubescent boy.

It's like whenever I'm watching a music video or a band on television and have the sound off they really look like they're going for it, just busting a gut with the raw emotion and sweat pouring outta em and then I turn the sound up and it sounds like Perry Como's younger brother's Halydol sessions.
Posted: Aug 24, 2005 4:49 am
 
Funny you guys should say what you did about being bummed.

When Lydia Lunch and Exene Cervenka were doing their poetry - oh excuse me - their spoken word stuff, I was expecting something raw and outrageous that would really turn my head. Couldn't be more wrong or more disappointed. They were as crappy and jr. high school girlish in their poetry as Jewel... only Jewel had yet to emerge.... they were bland, boring and banal. I expected so much more. Don't know if I was expecting Patti Smith, but I certainly wasn't expecting drivel.

Pretty true. Great album.

i hear alot of indie bands that borrow from zombies. belle and sebastion, the shins, alot of that soft type stuff.
Posted: Aug 26, 2005 12:25 am
 
I don't know how I managed to not hear Hawkwind until now. That shit rules. This thread rules.

Definitely, the Zombies are one band that is highly imitated and never gets the credit for it. They played a free show here a couple weeks ago and I missed it!
Posted: Aug 26, 2005 12:34 am
 
i could think about psychedelic music all day long...
i don't think the zombies are really that trippy. it's cool, but it's not like "heavy pysch".like i said earlier, pink floyd through the mid 70's were really out there. amon duul, trad gras och stenar,can, hawkwind, all those bands that tested the limits of song structure, to me that's really trippy stuff.

then when you add non-rock to your sounds, the most far out dudes of all time were jazz dudes. sun ra, pharoah sanders, miles davis, herbie hancock, john coltrane, sonny sharrock, eric dolphy- these were all super experimental dudes who could and would take it much farther out than any rock dudes (except hendrix, of course)

then if you want to look even another direction, religious music of other cultures was meant to bring on visions and cause trances. yeah, tribal african music is so insane, as is alot of indian music. those whirling dirveshes were pretty much as psychedelic as it gets. and, duh, that's where alot of those 'out there' rock bands got the concepts from.

as far as my personal taste, what really freaks me out is songs that include
1. electric guitar (wah and feedback )
2. congas (or tablas, tribal drums, etc)
3. sitars
4. extended jams
Posted: Aug 26, 2005 12:43 am

Indigenous music is awesome like that, but for some, not so. Have you ever heard Inuit "Breath Music"? The concept is two chicks hyperventalate into each other's faces with almost a hum; this, in turn, causes a "sensation" (read: slight buzz) from higher concentration of carbon dioxide than oxygen. They do this for a while. Neat concept, but I wouldn't buy an album of it.
The better ones, I must say, are indigenous music from those who do have some kind of psychtropic drug assisting.

I think Crimson and Clover is a perfcet song, but have you heard the rest of the album? It's pretty gross.
Posted: Aug 26, 2005 2:50 am
 
The most psychedelic stuff I've heard lately is all these Sublime Frequencies compilations that the Sun City Girls folks have been putting out. Most of them are total mindfucks and mix transcendental arabic tunes with whatever weird pop music they're listening to in Bali these days. Check out this site ...
http://www.sublimefrequencies.com

And another vote for Acid Mothers Temple, one of the best live shows I've seen in the past five years or so. They'll be back in the US next month.

Hey Eric H, thamks for that link. Most of it looks great! Have you heard the "Molam" CD yet?
Posted: Aug 26, 2005 3:20 am
 
Yeah! The Molam one is good. Sometimes the singing sounds like two screeching cats going at it, but you get used to it.
My faves of the ones I've heard are the two volumes of Sumatran Folk & Pop music (amazing), Radio Morocco, and Princess Nicotine.

I've got some solo cdr of his from reckless that they were selling 5 or 6 yrs ago (limited to 100 copies or something). Atmospheric, not crazy or anything. Also, another cdr of some AMT soundtrack to a russian exploitation film that eventually got a real pressing. I'm pissed that I paid 20 bucks for cdrs. Dudes are total capitalists and I was a total chump.

I have a great pic of my friend Jen, DMBQ and my baby... Jen was their tour manager for the N American tour (she was my drummer long ago) It was so funny to see them all playing with Violet (my kid)... someday I'll show her pictures of herself with a Japanese noise band (and probably a lot of other bands by the time we're through!)

Yeah, I bought a 10 dollar Musica Transonica cassette at a Mainliner show years ago. Probably about 15 minutes, repeats on other side. What the fuck?!? I mean, about 10 mintues was pretty killer, but shit. Those guys know how to make the green off the gaijin suckers.
Posted: Aug 26, 2005 7:09 pm
 
Round eyes have deep pockets.

Yeah, my ex-gf bought me an AMT tape that was the same on both sides and sounded 3rd or 4th generation. Songs cut off and started in the middle at the begining and end of each side. JANKY!

I'll trade cdrs of that stuff if somebody wants to. Email off list.

This is funny...last week I was doing some Google searchs on "Top 100 Psych Albums Of All Time" to see what people thought. A lot of Doors and Country Joe & the Fish at the top of most lists for some reason. But after looking at a few lists I realized Vinyl Ritchie's old band Mazinga Phaser was on a bunch of the lists. Mr. Ritchie's band was higher on the lists than Sgt. Pepper and S.F. Sorrow! My Bloody Valentine was on some lists and he laughed saying "That's what we wanted to sound like." Mazinga Phaser was also higher on the lists than them. This had me laughing for a while...small world.

Posted: Aug 29, 2005 3:16 pm

You are definitely wrong. Saw them in the smallest club ever, the drummer is a chick, for sure. Plus I met them and hung out with them the next day. The guys were all upfront, they did have very long hair (longer than the drummer's) but they are all guys. Yes China is her nickname (don't remember the Japanese name) because they joke that she looks Chinese.

they must go through line up changes.

This is possible. But I never saw her play anything but the drums. Of course I only saw them once. They all left the stage and ended up standing behind the bar at some point. They were hilarious, and awesome live.

Posted: Aug 29, 2005 5:48 pm
 
Though I am 'definitely wrong' the crowd surfer was an Asian Male.

For the record (since more than one person actually seems to care) I never saw the drummer on stage as I arrived mid-set and there were way too many people b/w me and the band to get near the stage. The only thing I saw was a dude rise above the crowd in standing position while being passed around along w. a hi-hat while playing it--hence I assumed that was the drummer.

And again for the annoying/nitpicking record there was a girl playing a bass/guitar throughout. (Or a totally cute/fay long-haired asian boy.)

Granted my perspective was impaired compliments of Ballantine and umm 'the "pizza" delivery guy.' Could there have been DUN DUN DUUUN..

a second drummer?!?!--gaaasp!

High Rise (Chad, you've got all my High Rise lps)

I thought Fushitsusha live was much more psychedelic than High Rise...but both were pretty great live...High Rise gets boring to me on record...

Best Japanese psych experience I've had was Boredoms live @ CBs...first tune was at lest 45 minutes, 3 drummers...Vision Creation Newsun...insane

Two of the best shows I've ever seen were the Boredoms, 10 years apart. 1993 - 2003.

THe Boredoms are unreal.

Does anybody have that Ween vs. The Boredoms cd? I'd like a copy.
Posted: Aug 30, 2005 6:31 pm
 
Is that a split or what? Ween isn't even close to being on the Boredoms' level.
Posted: Aug 30, 2005 6:38 pm
 
It was them playing together and Ween is fucking shit up royaly. I only heard it once. It was way heavier than you would think.

Ya might wanna listen to Eugene Chadbourne- strange mix of country, free jazz, psychedelic, satiric freakiness! Eugene has collaborated with tons of cool players: Tiny Tim, Jimmy Carl Black, members of the Violent Femmes, Camper Van Beethoven, and too many others. If you've ever wanted to hear a rake amplified then Eugene is for you.

Chadbourne also did a record with Sun City Girls...never heard but always been curious...

Misunderstood - Children of The Sun

is this that one song about the space aliens coming down and taking us away to their glorious planet

if so it is almost as good as Billy Squier and Aldo Nova's best psych stuff

they didn't say nuthin' in my book, looked like a bunch of midget wrestlers jumping around looking bored, thinking about eel sushi and then screaming. thinking of screaming ever see Screaming Seagull, Kiss Her Kiss Her (the group not the movie) distant and dramatic like their mentor YOKO.

did you see them in most recent years? say, early 2000s onward? cause they've changed their sound ALOT...used to be super-spazz free improv noise, stop-starts...and not groovy...

but their more recent stuff is long jam/long hair krautrock influenced stuff, think Amon Duul II, Ashra Temple, Neu, Can. Eye started the show I saw a few years back singing "Creation Newsun", etct and repeating over and over into a Vocoder with all this tripped out ambient stuff, then they locked in with 2 drummers and percussionist for a loooooooonnnnnnggggg jam...no screams....just hippy bliss....

did anyone see them this past tour, wondering if they're still tripped out...they are on VICE RECORDS now of all labels...

I saw him at Kim's doing a solo set on electric guitar and he had a book of like 100s of songs to do...and I think he wanted to play ALL of them...haha...finally the staff was like, ok, thanks for coming, etc....really cool kinda tripped out like his 60s stuff, but folky with that WEIRD voice..

Wooden Shjips are perfectly timed to the amount of minutes it takes too smoke a doobie by yourself.

"Psychedelic" music is rarely very psychedelic. Alot of the best and most exciting "psychedelic" music is just faux-psychedlic. Like, if you look at the posters on some chach douchebag college fratboys wall, they're not actually psychedelic. Woodgrain is psychedelic. Skin is pyschedelic. A blank wall is psychedelic.

I've been thinking about it, and the best bands to listen to while on psychedelics are:

John Coltrane
Skinny Puppy
Cocteau Twins (BBC Sessions)
Venetian Snares
Art of Noise

Holy Shit! (the band)

that Wooden Shjips 10" is perfect in almost every way imaginable. Three completely different sounding songs, all great. I wonder how they would sound live, though, there's a lot of studio trickery going on in how it sounds (left channel fading in and out, etc...)
Posted: Sep 1, 2006 1:32 pm
 
If no-one's mentioned 'em, my fave 'modern' psych albums would be:

The Soundtrack of Our Lives - Welcome To The Infant Freebase AND Extended Revelation (For The Psychic Weaklings Of Western Civilisation)

Chrome - Alien Soundtracks

"African Rhythms and Instruments, Vol. 3" LP on Lyrichord, recorded at the Pan-African Cultural Festival in Algiers in '69. Bonkers.

Ooh, that sounds kool, izzit as good as the Joujouka LP?
Posted: Sep 1, 2006 3:07 pm
 
Which Joujouka LP you mean, BKS? "B. Jones Presents..." or some other? Gotta admit I haven't listened to any of this stuff in a while --- it's just that the Lyrichord LP always comes to mind when I think of disorienting records.

I went to the Lyrichord website and it looks like they've reissued the first two volumes of recordings from the festival onto CD (haven't heard 'em), but not vol. 3 as yet. There's some brief soundclips of the vols. 1&2 if you want to get an idea:

This Heat is trippy in the Throbbing Gristle kind of way.

My brother in law told me about Wooden Shjips after he heard them on FMU about six months ago. He gave me an email address and told me that the dj announced that you could email them for a free record. So I sent an email and 2 copies of the 10" came in the mail a week later. Woah, cool guys to do that and a great fucking record.

But after looking at a few lists I realized Vinyl Ritchie's old band Mazinga Phaser was on a bunch of the lists.

Were they on the "Only interesting on recordings, and only if you're really high" lists? I lived in their hometown and saw them in various incarnations a few times over the years, and I can honestly say they were one of the main things that drove me back to punk and got me into good-country music.

This is not meant to say they suck, but it's a common problem with experimental/psych. and some other types of bands. I have a really great attention span when need be but I can only take so much efffects-pedal wankery. As for their peers...M.K. Ultra (Denton, Tx.) now that was some band.
Posted: Sep 1, 2006 9:56 pm
 
I guess I could mention that The 13th Floor Elevators, Butthole Surfers, Byrds, Gene Clark (No Other), and Tim Buckley(Starsailor) are some fave "psych" music. More I can't remember...

I do remember when I first heard Big Star's Kangaroo and it was psych to me at the time. Now I don't know what the hell it is, other than great!
