OMG, a poster named the greatest psychedelic bands.

Very underrated Texas Psychedelia... not quite up there with the 13th Floor Elevators, Shiva's Head Band, or The Golden Dawn, but every bit as good as Red Crayola, Bubble Puppy, and The Moving Sidewalks! An accquaintance of mine, Screamin' Kenny Blanchard, was in their 1974 reunion line-up on "Live at Lake Charles." Thanks for this! Texas Psych makes San Francisco's look sick!

OMG, The moving Sidewalks!!!

Here's some newer stuff. Many of the songs are not made-for-radio and so take a minute or more to ramp up. I think I got a little carried away.

This is a live version of the above. The audio sucks, but it gives a taste of the live show. I happened to see this tour at a different (better) venue. Awesome show it was.

When I was a teenager I was into Jean-Michel Jarre for a while. He had some pretty far out stuff.

For trip hop songs I like

"Too Wicky" - Hooverphonic

"Life in Mono" - Mono

"Trigger Hippie" - Morcheeba

And I like just about anything by Portishead, Zero 7, or Sia.

Probably the best "trippy" song ever. 1983 (A merman I should turn to be) by Hendrix. "Anyway, you know good and well it would be beyond the will of God - and the grace of the king." Killer song on headphones - maybe the best product of Electric Ladyland. Gotta love the flanging effects on the bells at the end.

...could you recommend some songs by Rush... Ive never heard of them..
Oh. My. God.

Is that how we old folks know when it's time to shuffle off this mortal coil? When bands that are an intergral part of our formative years start being 'never heard of'?

Anyway, skip the new stuff :zzz:. What you want is vintage Rush: the whole 2112 album.

"NOT Starship " ... too funny :) White rabbit ( Surrealistic Pillow ) is a classic onto itself.
Feed your head !
yep ! All those albums are included in my collection. Good tunes.
Surrealistic Pillow was done when they were J. Airplane. Starship came later - more pop rock than psych or classic rock. Surrealistic Pillow was released in '67, JA disbanded in '73, JS came along in ~'74-75.

I think the Doors' Riders on the Storm is a bit psych - with organ and some of the guitar licks.

Evo said:
More truly psychedelic music Fever Tree - San Francisco Girls. This is what psychedelic music sounded like.

Oh - yeah - classic! That generates flashbacks - er, memories - yeah memories. :biggrin:

Those were the good 'ole days.

I don't know now many of you have heard of them, or listen to them, but the band MGMT has some pretty trippy stuff out there. Currently one of my favorite bands. Essentially the entire 'Oracular Spectacular' album is pretty awesome. Here's a few of my favorites:
Kids - MGMT
Weekend Wars
Time to Pretend

There were a couple of female DJs in the area that adored Rush and over-played them to no end. One reason I grew very sick of them very quickly. After about the 100th time of having to sit through Tom Sawyer, or try to find another radio station that will come in OK in the truck... Their music could make me hit the SEEK button faster than an advertisement. At least the ad wouldn't last for 3+ minutes. Same effect when Axl Rose or Jon Bon Jovi sang. They both have voices like rusty hinges - yuck.

For me, it's Comfortably Numb. I used to like Floyd, but now, if I never hear anything from The Wall again, it will be too soon.

And now I've given up on Q107 Classic Rock altogether. (I've Made Room for the Boom!)

just because they were (are) different, to me, is not a motivation to listen to them----


I agree with turbo----if only there was a automatic setting on radio to change channels when rush came on

There's a woman DJ in my area that drools over rush too----maybe some women like rush because they sound like a crying whining baby which needs their attention and its more of a reaction which stimulates the female hormones...


this, for some reason, got me to think about string theory...

Well, I don't know the exact criterion for Psychedaelic music, but I do believe that this thread would be lacking if nobody mentioned Miles Davis "Bitches Brew". It is a bit different from the more Classic Rock esque bands being suggested, but I believe it to be fairly trippy music

That album cover -- for 30 seconds to Mars -- with the young boy on it is very well done.

The music, imo, not so much.

Nice contrast; he looks so young, yet jaded at the same time.

Well, moi ain't got enough brains to get the YouTube link to work soooooooooooo here's the vids' URLs.

The most exploitative work a la psychedelic


The happiest trippy song

I feel inclined
To blow my mind
Get hung-up feed the ducks with a bun
They all come out
To groove about
Be nice and have fun in the sun


and one you may have never heard



Stay on groovin' safari,
Tor
