A truly lovely, noisy album that is.  Really out there for 1868.

Just curious, by example, what is progressive psych according to Steve'TheLobbyist'G ?

(I see there's still life in "The Psych Rock Lobby", that's what I think it should be called Wink)

Without lobbyists, there would be no lobbies.  And without lobbies, there would be no elevators.  And without elevators, there would be no Roky Erickson.

^And without the Elevators, there would be no Moving Sidewalks. The second great psychedelic blues band to emerge from Texas featuring the great Billy Gibbons on guitar, who would go on to mega success with ZZ Top.
Featured is the band's one and only album from 1969 titled Flash. Another gem from the early world of Psychedelic rock.

A step backwards as this album from 1970 is listed under Heavy Prog, which does seem appropriate as Quartermas were like a heavier version of ELP and a bit gruffer. The group still had a bit of a psych vibe going on as well so Quartermas is excellent for pysch fans, proto fans as well as heavy prog fans.

Love this one. Definitely at a unique intersection of psych, hard rock, and the old keys/bass/drums combo.Thumbs Up

Hey, just found this:


Kappa, by the band Samurai. Not the British band, but the Japanese one featuring Mickey Curtis. Some wonderful psych, both light and heavy, and very progressive. Is featured on this site. I'm loving it, I would recommend it, and I will review it soon.

Electric Wurms

Musik Die Shwer zu Twerk LP Vinyl

Musik De Schewer Zu Twerk

For fans of the Flaming Lips' moody Krautrock excursions with the excellent 2009 album Embryonic and 2013's darker masterpiece The Terror, and find the Lips' new Sgt. Pepper offering too goofy or sacrilegious. Musik De Shewer Twerk  (Music That's Hard to Twerk to) by The Electric Wurms is an EP of Flaming Lips head honchos
Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd, together with some musician friends, producing another keyboard laden album of soundscapes marked out with ghostly guitar and is an a similar vane to The Terror. Steven Drozd is still in the musical drivers seat on this one and the EP doesn't disappoint.

Stardeath and The White Dwarfs
The day has finally come!!! The new SDWD record &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;#8220;Wastoid&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;#8221; is out July 29th on Federal Prism Records!!!
Wastoid

Stardeath and The White Dwarfs share a similar sound to the Flaming Lips (Wayne Conye of the Lips is Star Deaths leader Jeff Coyne's uncle), but the band is more guitar based, heavier at times, serious, existential and also markedly psychedelic. Wastoid by WD&SD is another great album for fans of the Flaming Lips' Embryonic and The Terror albums.

Bakery's Momento. Another excellent piece of proggy psych mixing lighter and heavier elements. This Australian band also switches up between guitar and keys as lead instrument a lot. A very interesting and enjoyable listen.

Just to follow up on the Dukes of the Stratosphere video. For those unfamiliar with the group, The Dukes Of The Strastophere is a nom de disc for English new wavers XTC, who put out an EP and full length album of
of fun pysch pop that references Barrett era Floyd, Walrus era Beatles and many others 60's era pysch rock groups like the Zombies and the Move. Pictured above is a reissue of 1985's EP 25 O'clock that comes in a cool mini book with liner notes that mimic Floyd's CD liner notes for their Piper album. 
 
The 1987 Psonic Psunspots album is also available in a mini book CD format. Both albums are also available on vinyl.
 
If you like XTC along with prog music, these two albums are a lot of fun and stand up musically on their own.
 
I'm a big XTC fan and those are  both excellent and fun albums....recommended to all psych rock fans and of course XTC fans.
Thumbs Up

Not as 'heavy' as some of the other psych rock bands but these guys always made me feel good when I listened to them.

I think Joplin's music was strictly in the realm of Blues Rock, but her psychedelic Porsche should give her an honorary inclusion to the Psyche Lounge!

Can't get enough live Hendrix? Don't worry, be happy.

With the current availability of nine live Hendrix albums, Live At Monterrey Live in The West, Winterland. Live At Berkeley Live In Miami, live at Woodstock, Live at Oakland, Live at Woburn and the evergreen Band Of Gypsys, there's more than a few choices available for fans of Hendrix live outings (like me).

Many complain that it's greed from the Hendrix estate that is the motive for all these releases but I think not as fans are crazy for this stuff. And it's a long way off from the 50 plus live offerings available from Stevie Ray Vaughan, who was recorded in everything from concert halls, television shows and corner bars, with wildly erratic sound quality.

The Hendrix live discs are of varying quality too but all are listenable with some being better than others. My personal picks are Live at Berkeley and Miami, with Live at Monterrey and Woodstock having excellent historical as well as musical value.

I don't believe there's anymore decent live material available to pilferage from the Hendrix vaults (at least I hope not) as it's probably of sub par quality. Unfortunately, that hasn't stop people from issuing sub par concert material from other artists in the past.
