For Mug x 3
I will only say Satori by Flower Travellin' Band
I was thinking mad guitaring/equivalent to bend your mind, so, in no particular order...
Funkadelic - Free Your Mind...
Mainliner - Mellow Out
Les Rallizes Denudes - Heavier Than A Death In The Family
Monoshock - Walk To The Fire
Psychic Paramount - Gamelan Into The Mink Supernatural
Parson Sound - Parson Sound 2CD
Who's Your Favorite Son God - Out Of Body Diva
Ween - Paintin' The Town Brown (second CD)
Chrome - Half Machine Lip Moves
Ok top nine. Nine is a sacred number in China you know.
That's Who's Your Favorite Naff Band Name is an exciting new 2008 entry that might disappear in time but I can't stop listening to it at the mo. If you like the Trout Mask Replica style mad interplay and would like it even more with a disembodied pixie singer then they are the band FOR YOU
I've been listening to Heavier Than A Death In The Family and the bootleg December's Black Children quite a lot recently. Mizutani sounds so pained, he's awesome.
S-S Records have a Monoshock singles comp for $5 on cd.
Dead good if you don't already have it.
Mizutani sounds pained when he's singing but then all the pain disappears and is replaced by PRANGGGGGGGG \m/
Just checked out Monoshock on last.fm
Will be buying this asap.
and it's five 'bucks'!
Psychic Paramount - awesome first track.
but do you mean the second track? I always think of that one as the first one since the actual first one is all short and backwards. From the second track onwards the awesome doesn't stop!
does he count in Psychedelic Twatrock?
if so Electric Ladyland is a good shout.
he invented psychedelic noise guitar ming with the Star Spangled Banner. I might be wrong though. I was watching some tv programme the other day and Pete Townsend was going on about Jimi copying his guitar smashing thing.
but I think he was way ahead of him in noise making.
i'm hoping some know-it-all is going to appear in this thread and name someone who was playing noise guitar in the 1920s or something. I want to know!
I really can't think of someone before Hendrix that was making such a racket.
There must be some, surely?
someone's bound to come along with one any time now. Any time now. Ah go on
instrumental to be banned for encouraging juvenile deliquency!
his speakers and invent the power chord? I'm willing to believe you like
he _only_ invented the power chord. And those speakers were probably ripped due to negligence.
'I Feel Fine' by The Beatles, everyone knows that! I'm sure people in avante garde circles had done this earlier but not so visibly. Link Wray did do a lot of firsts but they have nothing to do with feedback.
I like the new wave of psychedelia: Black Angels, BRMC et al.
They do that whole fuzzy wandering guitar thing
I think maybe its their b/w imagery they use permanently on everything that gives me that impression of their music.
PS. This isn't criticism. They're one of my favourite bands.
which is pretty great.
they're a little more traditional than a lot of the bands that have been mentioned so far but still amazing.
I was pretty gutted not to see them live on their recent tour.
Do you mean them?
Are they actually worth bothering with, or is it just some hippies with a record deal.
I think as the 70s goes on they get weaker, but I listened to the all 60s stuff I could find on MySpace and it definitely pleased me.
I meant these guys http://www.thewarlocks.com
the rev. gary davis version is haunting as well, just not all psyched out
are pretty fucking ace
i think we have a new genre here
must be so proud :D
I'll get my coat
they are very very good. Unfortunately they release about ten albums a year and i've had to chuck a few on ebay.
The first track from Pataphysical Freak Out Mu is a tour of force. Makoto Kawabata plays some mint facemelting guitar sometimes.
the last one I bought was Myth Of The Love Electrique. That had a good version of Pink Lady Lemonade on it but the rest wasn't too good. They aren't playing Glasgow in November. Not happy! The UFO version is great live.
"I was thinking mad guitaring/equivalent to bend your mind, so, in no particular order..."
itsa good list
I own some stuff from there. Not that much, but some. Which surprised me. I dunno why Monster Magnet are in there, but I heartily endorse their inclusion.
cyborgs revisited is awesome
they are awesome, i love 'em.
the psychadelic world of the 13th floor elevators is really cool
parson sound - parson sound (nothing beats this one really)
fushitsusha - hisou (apart from maybe this)
haare - psychedelic funeral
ash ra tempel - ash ra tempel
ya ho wa 13 - penetration, an aquarian symphony
hapshash and the coloured coat - featuring the human host and the heavy metal kids
hawkwind - in search of space
six organs of admittance - nightly trembling
skullflower - IIIrd gatekeeper
boredoms - vision creation newsun
and for a bonus point i'll throw in angus maclise's soundtrack to 'invasion of thunderbolt pagoda' .... eek!
I haven't heard most of them. Parson Sound is king though. It's like, how more dense could it be, and the answer is none. None more dense.
I saw Sunburned do a live soundtrack to that Thunderbolt Pagoda film and that was pretty crazy. They kept holding stuff up in front of the screen though
i saw sunburned do that soundtrack at the green man festival a few years ago. it was great, but nowhere near as messed up as the maclise original .... anyone up for a bit of sunday morning head-fuckery can watch it on here http://www.arthurworldservice.com/
I think that might have to wait until this evening though! Apparently the dvd has an Acid Mothers Temple soundtrack too.
Far Out's self-titled is a beast.
Wipjapwonga at its highest and most outhere.
Just ask Mr Cope.
I have a couple of his 'albums of the month' in my list actually. He picks some good stuff sometimes.
"Syntoptikon" is so awesome. And Major Stars 4 as far as I can hear. So much guitar soloing.
pink floyd - atom heart mother
out hud - s.t.r.e.e.t.d.a.d.
holy fuck - holy fuck
i'm 84% sure these apply
this and the "pissed jeans/jesus lizard" thread will keep my busy for the next year. fuckin a.
you can get all of the Parson Sound stuff on lp now in a swish box.
best & heaviest drone rock ever
"This is a completely astounding collection of dark shimmering drones and super heavy tranced out minimal psych-rock recorded in 1967 and '68. At times freaky and chaotic, but most often hypnotically locked into stoned grooves, this is some of the best heavy psych we've ever heard. Their shifting instrumentation (the list includes guitar, bass, drums, organ, double-bass, electric-cello, flute, cowbell, saxophone, hand drums, acoustic guitar, tape recorder, and...seance? huh?) is employed in both intricate and extended studio recordings and totally primal and euphoric live performances over the course of these two discs. Parson Sound crafted music that, while reminiscient of the Taj Mahal Travellers, Terry Riley, Flower Travelling Band and the like, is almost wholly their own. If you were told that this was a new, 2001 recording you'd think that it must be some Japanese Acid Mothers Temple style psych-rock supergroup, or Bardo Pond on some hitherto unknown variety of really really good drugs...wow! Yet again we are amazed at the musical treasures hidden in the not-so-ancient past, and greatful to the fans and labels that dig 'em up for reissues like this one. And Subliminal Sounds does it right, packaging these archival recordings with detailed liner notes, and evocative art and photos -- although the music is all that's needed to make you wish you'd been born old and Swedish enough to have been at one of the free-rock happenings documented here!"
and in other news Holy Mountain are going to be putting out an 'International Hello' LP which is Monoshock under a different name.
a heavier one^
^a quieter one
