“Paranoid” by Black Sabbath

Another stone cold classic!

“Wuthering Heights” by Kate Bush

9 Aug

I can’t believe I have not yet posted the video for Kate Bush’s “Wuthering Heights”. Above is the first version; in the official us version of the video for the song (below) her madness shines just as bright, and while the flow of her Ausdruckstanz can be considered psychedelic anyways, the first version video emphasizes that aspect perfectly.

 

“Supper’s ready” by Genesis (live 1974)

Another epic display of well-mannered madness by the lovely (early prog version of) Genesis. (also: witness Peter Gabriel transform from a very early proto goth into a beautiful flower)

La Faim (Hunger) – Peter Foldès

1 Jun

La Faim (Hunger) is a 1974 short film by Peter Foldes, and one of the first computer generated films. An impressive work with a psychedelic edge.

Curious Alice 1971

4 Feb

This drug abuse educational film portrays an animated fantasy based upon the characters in “Alice in Wonderland.” The film shows Alice as she toured a strange land where everyone had chosen to use drugs, forcing Alice to ponder whether drugs were the right choice for her. The “Mad Hatter” character represents Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD), the “Dormouse” represents sleeping pills, and the “King of Hearts” represents heroin. Ultimately, Alice concluded that drug abuse is senseless.
