PS The other stuf you posted, except Helios Creed, I would personally out in the genre of electro not psychedelic. Anyway the Helio Creed song is just a (bad) remix of a true 60's psychedelic track by the Velvet Underground (with Nico).

Modern psychedelia is like the magic mushroom band, ozric tentacles, etc.

You are thinking of Psychedelic Trance my friend. (edit) Ooooops my mistake, I was thinking about Infected Mushroom and not Magic Mushroom Band http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DB-3-TVj ... re=related

I was not pointing to a particular genre of music but to psychedelic as a descriptor of feeling.

Trip Hop is pretty damn psychedelic.

Wellll... people call it "triphop," but the other names for it are downtempo and chill out, neither of which really describes the euphoric blastoff of psychedelics. The sound is really far from psychedelic, imo. Not warped, weird, buzzing with intense energy or spirituality. Kind of mopey, actually. Sounds like after hours music for unwinding with a scotch and trying to put the moves on a classy babe in a nice lounge somewhere. Or lying in your bed crying in the dark in your college dorm.

Agreed. Ozrics are great background music.

Disagree, it's definitely not chill out (though it is chilled) and it's not downtempo coz it's not 100% electronic and it definitely has the slowest of slow hip hop beats (and other elements like dubbing, scratching etc...)

Of course its mopey! The're from Bristol! You'd be mopey too if you were from Bristol! Tricky is mopey too, as are Massive Attack but all three belong firmly within the limits of the Trip Hop genre.

First sentence of Wikipedia: "Trip hop is a music genre consisting of downtempo electronic music." DJ Shadow is about the trippiest thing labeled as Trip Hop, imo. Or maybe Boards of Canada... not sure what they are at all.

all that as definitely nothing to do with former new-age hippies ... :toilet:

Haha, I just caught your edited response.

Did you ever trip once in your life? On, like, real acid?

Velvet Underground was not psychedelic music. Heroin is not LSD, maaan. Helios was part of Chrome, one of the pioneers of modern acid punk.

This actually has nothing to do with anything, though as always, I could be wrong. :shrug:

I also dig 70s rock throwback stuff...

In particular, I dig this song because it was a bit ahead of its time (just as far as paranoid subject matter*) and one of the last tunes these guys put out:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZVhF-QSWSs

I'm a big powerpop geek :shrug:


*although Gamma Ray and Megadeth were singing anti-Illuminati songs, too... I don't think Hellacopters were influenced in any way by them and I don't think the general public was willing to entertain it, really, until 2011. Funny how it works... "nuts" talk about it long enough until it's popular knowledge and fun to think about... like Roswell.

I think probably this was the punk song that really drove me to Buddhism, though...

No wait... maybe that punk song didn't drive me to Buddhism afterall. Perhaps it was something more like this... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCy9k_RWlvA ... or this... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFsbAuX9P4w

ah, who can tell anymore.

;) punk sucks

I've never taken illegal drugs. I've never even smoked a cigarette. I personally can't stand the damn things. The first time I got drunk on alcohol I was 28, and at a Gypsy Restaurant in Vienna. I didn't care for it and only drank it again less than a dozen times. I grew up in the 80's and read a lot about hippies in Rolling Stone. To read Rolling Stone you would think being a hippie was the best thing on earth. I tried to see what the appeal was and listen to Bob Dylan and Peter, Paul, and Mary. That was all I needed to know about being a hippie. Hippie music is awful I thought. You'd have to be on drugs to like it. I mean Rolling Stone says Bob Dylan is the best artist of all time. Really? The man sounds like a dying cow in a rainstorm. I'll take the new wave/synth pop I grew up listing to in the 80's any day, over some man who can't even carry a tune. I have however been into new age. Damn you Shirley MacLaine, and your Out On a Limb book! After seeing the mini series and reading that book I became a crystal carrying, Edgar Cayce loving, Atlantis believing, UFO watching fanatic. I however am not ashamed of my new age background. If it wasn't for that I probably would have never tried to study Dharma. So maybe I should thank Shirley MacLaine instead. :smile:

People tend to like the music they grow up with. This hippie likes many genres, including works of Jimmy Dorsey--Hank Williams--Elvis--Bob Dylan--Peter, Paul, and Mary--The Beetles--B. B. King--Bobby McFerrin--and Michael Jackson, but favors Mozart, and Tchaikovsky.
