ACMV started tripping through electronically enhanced psychedelic pop music last week with very early electronic music by Tom Dissevelt & Kid Baltan, Raymond Scott and Joe Meek’s Tornados. We continue with music from the beginning of the psychedelic era from 1966 and 1967. I decided to include obvious representatives like the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd because their influences were just too big to be ignored even though it might be boring for connoisseurs. There were still not so many people in 1966 and 67 who actually could afford the to that time very expensive electronic equipment, but starting 1969/70 the scene had become more diverse.
ACMV is starting a new series about psychedelic music that was recorded with the help various early electronic instruments, self-made effect gear and the skills of outstanding producers of experimental psychedelic pop music. Starting in the year 1957 this odyssey will take you through the multicolored psychedelic scene of the late 1960s and early Seventies, guiding you further through the rise of early Prog-Rock, electronic “Kraut-Rock”, Proto-Disco, Almost-New-Wave and Pre-Electronica from Germany, France, UK, USA, Canada, Turkey, Japan, Brazil, Australia, Switzerland, Italy, Iran and Pakistan.
