5.0 out of 5 stars This light hits the spot!, 18 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great little bit of kit, a multi coloured spotlight with various modes that change the sequence and frequency of the colour transitions. The sound activated modes are excellent, just set the light up near a speaker for a truly mind blowing effect, particularly effective with a smoke machine and a mirror ball.

2.0 out of 5 stars Picture quality isn't great either, but it is a very good film ..., 9 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite what it says on the cover, this is not the 101 minute cut, just the usual version that runs to around 85 minutes. Picture quality isn't great either, but it is a very good film - seek out the 101 minute blu-ray for the full experience.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible!, 22 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cockneys Vs Zombies [DVD] (DVD)
Absolutely awful movie, I felt embarrassed for the top name actors that appear in this film, not one to put at the top of their CVs. Poor script, dire humour, rubbish zombies, probably OK if you are fifteen.


Psychedelia - An Ancient Culture, A Modern Way Of Life
Psychedelia - An Ancient Culture, A Modern Way Of Life

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A long strange trip., 6 Mar. 2013
It would be easy to assume that psychedelic culture was purely a phenomenon of the tail end of the twentieth century, but that would be a gross misunderstanding of the phemomenon, as this mind expanding volume explains in great depth. Author Patrick Lundborg has spent a great deal of time tying together the many diverse strands of this pervasive subject. From the mystery cults of ancient Greece through to modern rave culture he examines the ebb and flow of a continuous underground psychedelic culture that has existed as long as human kind have been ingesting hallucinogenic compounds, either for mystical, revelatory experiences, or for more hedonistic pleasures.

Lundborg takes the reader on a fascinating journey that embraces ancient mushroom cults, medieval witchcraft, shamanism, phenomenology, psychology, LSD gurus, natural altered states of reality, New Age mysticism, and the effects of psychedelics upon art, music and literature, with a particular focus on the last great flowering of psychedelia in the Twentieth century.

Bringing over twenty years of devoted research and practical experience together into what will no doubt come to be recognised as the definitive text on the subject, Psychedelia is over 500 double dipped pages filled with arcane, and esoteric knowledge, illustrated with a selection of colour plates of items from Lundborg's own extensive archive and graced by suitably tripped out cover art featuring a vibrant painting by the visionary artist Anderson Debernardi.

This is a fascinating and absorbing study and highly recommended to anyone with an interest in the history of mankind's exploration of inner space. If I had one criticism it would be the lack of an index, but it is possible to download one from the author's website.

The time to return to purposeless play is NOW!

An excellent collection from the under appreciated Delerium label that takes the listener on a fascinating trawl through a veritable cornucopia of underground post punk progressive psychedelic folk rock sounds from the 90s and beyond. Feed your (inner) Head!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bud scores a knock out!, 2 Oct. 2008
Wow! What a story! This is an amazing slice of Americana, from his KO boxing career to Sunset Strip hipster in the sixties, managing groovy psychedelic rock groups and hip and happening clubs, through to seeking spiritual enlightenment along the way. A rollercoaster ride and a fine read that I found really hard to put down.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Got Mine!, 18 Oct. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very revealing look at what was happening across the Bay in the mid sixties, with grungy rock, garage and soul all evident to one degree or another across the various bands featured on the disc. The real standouts are the Baytovens, their Anglophile Beatlesque leanings and sixties pop sensibility shine on the 1967
Belfast 45 sides, while the tracks from 1966 are fine examples of garage and jangly folk rock.Good to see the Harbinger Complex Amber label 45 get an airing too, it's quite different to their later material.

It's the previously unreleased tracks that hold the most surprises though, check out the fuzz laden mournful ballad "Her Heart Said No" by the Blue Lite Conspiracy, or the sinuous soulful sounds of the Immediate Family's "You're Taking Hold of Me." Then there's the beautifully crafted, moody, Anglo styled garage "Away Girl" couretesy of the Towaway Zone, sounding like a totally different band to their later Epic 45.

A cool collection of East Bay artifacts that's been worth the wait, let's hope the next volume doesn't take quite so long to prepare.

5.0 out of 5 stars West Coast Psychedelic Classic, 7 Feb. 2003
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Clear Light (Audio CD)
One of the most psychedelic albums to emerge from the heady days of 1967, Clear Light are almost a cross between their Elektra label mates, Love and The Doors. Managing to be delicate and ethereal one moment, and portentious and doom-laden the next, this album is a worthy addition to any West Coast psychedelic collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elektra 60's Psychedelic Classic, 30 Jan. 2003
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Clear Light (Audio CD)
Clear Light were one of several groups signed by Elektra in 1966. They had started life as The Garnersfield Sanitarium, before changing their name to The Brain Train under the guidance of L A hipster Bud Mathis, they had one single released, 'Me'/'Black Roses' on the Titan label in late 1967 after they had metamorphosed into Clear Light. Paul Rothchild teamed them up with Cliff de Young as vocalist and they recorded the eponymous album during summer 1967.
A fantastic melange of folk rock and psychedelia, it can be seen as a missing link between their Elektra peers, Love and The Doors (Bassist Doug Lubahn provided occasional bass duties for The Doors first three albums), who unfortunately they were overshadowed by, having their album release sandwiched between Forever Changes and Strange Days in December 1967.
A re-working of 'Black Roses' starts off a clutch of upfront rockers, enhanced by the unique double drums of Dallas Taylor and Michael Ney, which includes 'Sand' and the manic 'The Street Singer' which work well against the more intricate psychedelia of numbers such as 'A Child's Smile' and 'They who Have Nothing'.
The highlight of the set for me is 'Night Sounds Loud', a rip roaring sensory overload laden with surreal lyrical imagery and instrumentation that merge to form textures of sound that soar and glide. The CD comes with an extra track - 'She's Ready To be Free' - originally from the sountrack to The President's Analyst, a suberb James Coburn movie in which Clear Light also appear. No more releases were forthcoming, although Clear Light did spend some time in the studio with Danny Kortchmar as additional guitarist.
Some members can be heard on the sountrack to the Monkees film Head, providing the instrumentation to 'The Porpoise Song', the most psychedelic track in the entire Monkees catalogue. If you love Love and adore The Doors, then Clear Light will transport you to new realms of delight.
