What unites the bands on the main list is that they are all currently issuing records or demos and that their musical roots are in the US/British melodic psychedelia of 1965-1975. The music involved varies in attitude from good-natured pop to evil metal. All the bands, however, have in common a love of melody, vocal harmony, trippy sounds and surreal lyrics. These people are also all very highly skilled musicians on stage and in the studio, and tend to be multi-instrumentalists. This is music with heart (warm), brains (slightly addled) and, in many cases, a lot of balls. The discographies only cover my favourite discs. After the main list follows a selection of less well known but extremely good psychedelic bands of the past.
I'm always thrilled to find new good music. If you're familiar with these bands or check them out and find that you like them, I would be very grateful if you would share your own favourites with me.
