Ay! La musica es muy caliente!
Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 10:43pm

What would you call this style of music? Garage? I'm never sure what terms apply.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm
Little Danny:

The Art Guy is tough to call. Maybe fuzzed-out folk-rock? It's quite unusual.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46pm
Little Danny:

Hey folks - there's a severe thunderstorm coming this way, so if I disappear suddenly you'll know what's up!
Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 10:50pm

I think folk-rock probably covers much of what I like.
Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 10:52pm

if i was paid to give it a genre, which i generally hate to do, i'd call this (& the last one, at least) "60s garage psych".
Avatar 10:52pm

Hope you've got a flashlight!

This set all sounds like psychedelic pop to me.
Sort of blend of surf/folk/acid. Lately I think of it as Black Light music or Black Light Sunset Strip.
Avatar 10:54pm

With a sub-category of Surfadelic.
Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 10:55pm

'seems to me,g, lately you think of it as tripping music!
- or, "fringe factory radio"!...
Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 10:55pm

This confirms my suspicion that all these terms are rather fuzzy.
Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 10:56pm

Surf is easier to identify.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm
Little Danny:

Melinda, I would totally agree. There's so little that actually fits into tidy categories.
Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 10:57pm

Though the Ventures are mixing it up a bit here.
Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 10:58pm

Did anyone ever form a surf band called the Dentures? Seems like it should have happened.
Avatar 11:03pm

There was so much cross-pollination in music then.
A lot of Dick Dale's Surf has middle eastern motifs that became part of Surf in general; and The Beatles popularized sitar. Stones incorporated Moroccan music. There must be some great books about all of this.
Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 11:06pm

the current incarnation of the ventures does include one of the founding members. if he got others of his age to form the rest of the band, it would be up to him to re-name it "the dentures".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:06pm
Little Danny:

I think the remaining members of the Ventures would be well-advised to assume that name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm
Little Danny:

Oh shit, you beat me to it 'Coel!
Avatar 11:07pm

,,,and this gorgeous Cambodian synthesis. The Vietnam War is part of the story. Very complex & I'm no musicologist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm
Little Danny:

@geezerette - I don't think so. It needs to be done!
Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 11:08pm

Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 11:13pm

I didn't know the Ventures were still around in any form.
Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 11:16pm

...but there still is plenty of cross-pollination... and back then it was happening so widely that it'd take a lot of intense research to trace. 'twould be a fun project though.
Avatar 11:18pm

Danny,there's such a strong resurgence of Acid related music now that someone somewhere must be working on it. I've been thinking,wondering a lot lately, what the reasons are for this massive flashback. There are some parallels to Viet Nam era.
Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 11:19pm

So is there a difference between psych and acid?
Avatar 11:19pm

Coel, yeah it would require funding.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm
Little Danny:

Melinda, I don't think so, but maybe in psych collectors' universe there is some distinction. I hear the word "psych" these days way more than "acid," for what it's worth.
Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 11:24pm

g, i think it may be partly because commercial music sucks so bad now (worse than ever in history, in my opinion) that many people who appreciate actual music are digging into the past - deep enough to discover things that similarly minded folks didn't dig deep enough to find during the 80s or 90s, for example, when things were pretty bad, but not unbearable (for most people).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm
Little Danny:

Right on, coel.
Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 11:29pm

I'm not paying close attention to commercial music these days but I do get the impression that it is awful compared to 80s and 90s commercial stuff. Also the internet makes it easier for people who dig to share their finds.
Avatar 11:29pm

melinda: I think they're interchangeable;but maybe each drug has its sound,so maybe not. Acid was one hallucinogen and psychedelic describes the property of changing perception which a lot of drugs can do, each in different ways.
I promise to shut up now!
Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 11:32pm

i think of "psych" as most of the first 6 songs in this set; and 13th floor elevators; the seeds; the pretty things; the count 5... when i think of "acid rock" i think of the jefferson airplane; the (early) grateful dead; the byrds, to some degree; big brother & the holding company...the "san francisco sound" in other words. maybe it's a little softer-edged than "psych" usually is (?) - but yeah, it's a fine line.
Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 11:33pm

- and, what g said.
Avatar 11:33pm

Yeah,"Acid" is more specific.
Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 11:35pm

I first misunderstood 'acid' when I was younger as meaning 'harsh and penetrating' even though I knew it also referred to LSD, so it's not a good descriptor for me, even though the finer distinctions listed here do make sense.
Avatar 11:41pm

as usual, this show is amazing. also as usual, i can only make a cameo appearance. thanks for the show, it's fantastic.
Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 11:41pm

i did too melinda! i thought "acid rock" was what i was to learn was "heavy metal"; which now of course is not "heavy metal" any more but "doom"! (ie: black sabbath)
Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 11:42pm

Danny i really like your bed music.

Thanks - Great program Danny!

good night everyone
Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 12:03am

Avatar 🦭 Swag For Life Member 12:03am

- melinda, you nailed it "harsh and penetrating". if someone is too young or otherwise not inclined to know about the drug connection, it's a reasonable deduction!

Thanks all, and thanks for listening! Love and an magical evening to y'all.
