Santa Claus the Magic Mushroom & the Psychedelic Origins of Christmas

This EP has everything a groovy rock n’ roller could ask for, from politics to love, and most importantly, major sex appeal! Even … Continue reading EP Review: Flare Voyant – ‘Flare Voyant’

Album review: Jess and the Ancient Ones – The Horse and Other Weird Tales

  I first discovered Finnish psychedelic rock band, Jess and the Ancient Ones when I heard their psychedelic doom drenched cover of the song "Long and Lonesome Road" by Shocking Blue.

Upon hearing their original track "Astral … Continue reading Album review: Jess and the Ancient Ones – The Horse and Other Weird Tales

Album review: The Serpent Power (1967)

In a never ending stream of West Coast flavored psychedelic music, it's only inevitable that bands impressive as The Serpent Power would become buried beneath the surface of the musical saga of the 60's. With the majestic vocals of Tina Meltzer included, it's beyond astounding that this group never truly received the recognition they deserved. … Continue reading Album review: The Serpent Power (1967)

Green Seagull – (I Used To Dream In) Black And White

Words by Jack Hopkin I discovered pretty soon after I first laid ears on Green Seagull's new single that I, too, used to dream in black and white. Little did I realise that when my resident stork landed this lysergic faberge egg of a single on my lap that I'd fall so head over heels … Continue reading Green Seagull – (I Used To Dream In) Black And White
