Background

Psychedelic rock evolved in the 60s as an offshoot of the rock and roll movement combining elements of rock, reggae, and other diverse elements. Inspired by the use of mind altering drugs like cannabis, mescaline, psilocybin, and especially LSD, psychedelic rock broke with traditional rock and laid the roots for psychedelic metal and experimental rock genres. In the USA bands like The Doors, the Grateful Dead, and Jefferson Airplane lead the way for later bands like 13th Floor Elevators, Bubble Puppy, and Third Bardo to name a few. In 1965-1967 The Beatles also were recording psychedelic rock with tunes like "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and "Tomorrow Never Knows" to name a few, but were not strictly classified as psychedelic rock. Cream and Pink Floyd (with original founder Syd Barrett) embraced psychedelic music fully becoming two of the first truly psychedelic bands. This article is about the genre. ...

Psychedelia could also be interpreted as simply a "surreal and dreamy feeling" in a particular song, instead of a specific genre with rules to follow. In some cases this simply requires writing one coherent song, then to experiment recording that song in the studio while under "psychedelic influence", yielding very surreal musical results. A classic example of this method is "Bass Strings", by Country Joe And The Fish. This early track, written and recorded by Country Joe and the rest of his band in 1966, was obviously an upbeat, hasty, and offensive song of protest in a raw jug band influenced style. In 1967 this song changed dramatically, not to meet more contemporary commercial standards, but rather to re-record it as an experimental track while under the influence of LSD. The new psychedelic result was clearly self-evident in Country Joe's first studio album ("Electric Music for the Mind and Body") when "Bass Strings" featured a much slower tempo, delayed vocals, added reverb, studio reversed cymbals, electric organ, desert traveler lyrics, and a continuous blues guitar solo which together make this song a very, in the true sense of the word, "psychedelic" track.

Neo-psychedelic music

Main article: Neo-psychedelia

Neo-psychedelic is a broad term used to describe groups with overt psychedelic influences. Much like traditional psychedelia, neo-psychedelia is associated with experimental and jam-oriented music.[1]Many modern bands incorporate elements of traditional psychedelia into their music, such as the Comets on Fire or Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. In addition, many jam bands, like Umphrey's McGee, Phish, Ozric Tentacles, and Rusted Root, play psychedelia-influenced music. Other bands, like Kwisp, create a new unique psychedelic sound. Bands such as Porcupine Tree, Spock's Beard, and Ayreon touch upon Neo-psychedelic music, while applying it to progressive music. However, the art-rock band Tool leads the pack commercially in the neo-psychedelic genre, maintaining number one albums and sold out stadium shows. Much like Pink Floyd, they have over the top psychedelic shows, but with a darker edge. Image File history File links This is a lossless scalable vector image. ... Neo-Psychedelia (a. ... For experimental rock music, see experimental rock. ... A jam session is a musical act where musicians gather and play (or jam) without extensive preparation or predefined arrangements. ...

The Third Wave of Psychedelia


In the summer of 2005, the label Northern Star Records was founded by Andy Oliver and Scott Causer with the objective to make the genre prominent in mainstream society. They collated all the bands they could find who they considered were psychedelic and compiled the first of the legendary Psychedelica series which featured Electric Prunes, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Silver Apples, The Telescopes, The High Dials, Floorian, The Hiss, The Lovetones, The Black Angels, The Dolly Rocker Movement and about 30 others. The double compilation CD was praised by Billboard and Uncut as the new leaders in the genre. The Electric Prunes were a late 1960s American rock and roll group, best known for the psychedelic hit I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night. The band was basically a front for songwriters Annette Tucker and Nancie Mantz, and producer Dave Hassinger. ... The Brian Jonestown Massacre is a psychedelic rock band founded in San Francisco, California in the early 1990s, led by Anton Newcombe. ... Silver Apples were a psychedelic electronic music duo from New York City composed of Simeon Coxe III, who performed as Simeon, on a primitive synthesizer of his own devising, and drummer Danny Taylor. ... The Telescopes were formed in 1987 by Stephen Lawrie and could best be described as a noise/ space rock band - the Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine and Spacemen 3 being influences and contemporaries. ... The High Dials are a Canadian indie rock band from Montreal, originally known as The Datsons, and then The Datson Four. ... The Hiss is a 5-piece band from Atlanta, Georgia. ...


Northern Star had become an overnight success and were viewed as the mentors of the "third wave of psychedelia" - a phrase coined by Oliver who saw it as a new movement and a logical 'next wave' in the history of psychedelic music.


The shoegaze genre also bordered on the psychedelic with its drones and ethereal dreamlike qualities and odd feedback. But Causer felt the genre was repressed and underrated or berrated by the media unfairly and sought to alleviate the stigma by re-labelling it as "stargaze". Bands such as The Electric Mainline , The Voices and The December Sound took on this form and went on to be lauded by the NME and The Times.


Also stigmatized and ignored but nonetheless worth noting - perhaps the most influential psychedelic band of modern times - Ozric Tentacles - discovered a new and potent source of psychedelia in the mid eighties that propelled them into the next century, spawning and influencing a whole slew of other bands such as; most successfully Eat Static and Nodens Ictus, Wooden Baby, Zub Zub, The Ullulators, and The Oroonies. The Ozric Tentacles (commonly known as the Ozrics) are an instrumental band from Somerset, England, whose music can loosely be described as psychedelic. ...


By the time the second Northern Star compilation "Psychedelica Volume 2" came out, the genre had become prominent in the mainstream press and was finally taken seriously as a major music movement.


Neo-psychedelic bands of the third wave consist of: The Black Angels, Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Lovetones, The Warlocks, The Nova Saints, The December Sound, The Hiss, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Electric Soft Parade, Hopewell, Goldrush, The Stevenson Ranch Davidians, The Quarter After, Spindrift (band), The Deaths, Belles Will Ring, Serena Maneesh, The Lea Shores, Sunsplit, The Morning After Girls, The Sun Blindness, The Gris Gris, The High Dials, The Flower Machine. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (BRMC for short) is an American garage rock band from San Francisco, California, now based in Los Angeles. ...

The first use of the word "psychedelic" in a rock music context is usually credited to the 13th Floor Elevators, and the earliest known appearance of this usage of the word in print is in the title of their 1966 album The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators.
