6/14/17: Old School Psychedelic Rock

Psychedelic-Rock-PPcorn

“You got that rainbow feel, but the rainbow has a beard.”

This week the Fuzz Factory was filled with the expansive and sometimes strangely experimental sounds of early psychedelic rock. I tried to touch on many variations of this new and emerging sound of the 60’s and early 70’s. I discovered some brand new songs in my research for this show and dropped them in the playlist. Mixed in with a few classics (like the one I quoted above) are some really rare tracks. Hope you enjoyed it if you were listening and if you didn’t, look closely at the playlist and discover some of these artist for yourself.
