#159 – The Best of & The Rest of British Psychedelia – Various Artists

It was obvious from the out set that the compiler of this compilation thinks that psychedelia has to either sound like Village Green Preservation Society by the Kinks or like it should be played in some new town like Reading or Milton Keynes with lots of young people expressing themselves through dress and dance.

It seems also that to pass as psychedelia, both the lyrics and the band name has to be slightly odd and quirky. This compilation has the following:

1 Morning Morgan Town – Jude
Keep Hold of What You’ve Got – The Shots
3 Shirley – Cliff Wade
House of Many Windows – Motherlight (sounds a bit like Genesis meets Marillion)
Peru – Chimera (Should be a theme tune for some Youthwave devil worship film from 1970, possibly starring Beryl Reid)
6 Saga of a Wrinkled Man – Fortes Mentum
7 Baby You’ve Gotta Stay – Angel Pavement
(Track 8 is Missing)
9 Laura’s Garden – Orange Bicycle
10 It Never Stays The Same – Bob Grimm
11 All Of My Life – Pussy
12 Green Mello Hill – Magic Worms
13 Leilla – Chiitra Neogy
14 Look At Me I’ve Fallen Into A Teapot – Cliff Wade

Never heard of any of them.  Nice as non-distracting background music…

Music Project – Album #37 – A Psychedelic Guide to Monsterism Island- Various Artists

A Psychedelic Guide to Monsterism Island by Various Artists

Towards the end of my most recent exploration of musical genres I kind of rediscovered Psychedilia for myself. One of the many trophies I gathered from my foray was this collection.

Of course, listening to it again I can only assume that somehow my ears had been affected by something. Not drugs. Probably tiredness.

Whatever the case..this is utter bollocks. Except maybe for the fact it has a Belbury Poly tune on it. Nah…it’s shite. Don’t waste your time….

Music Project – Album #34 – A Monsterous Psychadelic Bubble- Various Artists

A Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble by Various Artists

One of the many pitfalls of downloading music illegally is that sometimes you download an incomplete rare album and you’re unable to find the missing tracks to make the album complete. Usually I’ll just delete and discard. But this compilation is somehow connected to my mind in some sort of mystical way.

You see, it has been my wish for a very long time, that in the event of ever finding out I have a terminal illness and a short period of life remaining, that I obtain some LSD and trip to the other etheric plains. This album, it seems, will be one of the albums that play during this trip session.

A curious compilation of all manner of Psychedelia tunes mixed by Amorphous Androgynous. If you’re planning on dropping some acid soon, I suggest this is what you want to have on in the background. Unless of course if, to you, dropping acid means a chemical spill in the lab. You might not want this on when the HSE come to visit.
