    I listened to the guys stuff. The reason the psychedelic period ended is because we ran out of music. Every psychedelic idea...just used up. I listened to the three clips and thought, "I heard (and probably played) that over 40 years ago. Nothin' new. Nothin' inventive. Just overtrodden ground.

    I listened. Interesting that he chose to play drums live over a bass track. I figured it would be pretty hard to keep locked in with a bass track for a drummer, and these prove it.

    Still, these aren't bad as kernels of ideas. With some modern sensibilities and some cross pollination of ideas with other musicians, and the singer focusing only on singing, this might actually be decent stuff after a couple of years of development.

    All that said, I agree with the poster that said that all psychedelic music has been used up. The tunes have a dated, ruffled shirt and bell-bottoms kind of vibe to them, but who knows what the next generations will find to be awesome?

    Is that Salvia Divinorum in the background? :eyebrow:
    I wouldn't be surprised.

    The poster looks like something you might encounter whilst abusing Salvia Divinorum....


    The music sounds like The Move and The Pretty Things jamming together after drinking a gallon of cough syrup each. It is like somebody played the dude 20 seconds of Arthur Lee and Love, and said 'make more of this!'.

    I would be up for jamming with the guy once, but I imagine it would be more Jonestown Massacre than Brian Jonestown Massacre....

    I didn't listen to the tracks, but that is exactly what this generation can't get enough of.

    Only replace all the musicality with senselessly droning riffs.

    Maybe it's just me but, vocally, he reminds me a lot of Zakk Wylde of the Black Label Society. I don't know what he's trying to do but, if it makes him happy, much success to him.
