Storm De Hirsch - Peyote [1965]

This is a pretty cool tripped out film. The music is interesting as well. It goes from percussion, to an organ and horn jam, and back. It's the visuals that get me.

Flaming Lips - Borderline

The flaming lips Borderline

Crazy version. This is what I love about these guys. They don't just cover a song. They re-imagine it. If you haven't checked out their version of Pink Floyd's "Dark side of the Moon," get on it. It's kinda scary. Thanks CJ for the heads up on this video.

Original Pop Corn -1969

Ok, this is a weird one. The information I have obtained about this record is this. A bunch of talented tripped out French musicians got together to create a new dance. Whether serious, or not, I don't now, but this is what the out come was. The record is supposed to be the soundtrack to the new dance the Original Pop Corn. This is sixties psychedelic pop at its strangest. There are some really cool jams throughout. The musicians not only use there instruments to get psychedelic sounds, but the studio itself. Lots of drippy re-verb, and other odd uses of studio effect. The album is going to be reissued as vinyl in a few months. If you are interested, you can preorder a copy for yourself here at Movie Grooves. Which by the way has tons of amazing psychedelic vinyl and compact discs. It's a great website. I highly recommend you check it out. Have fun shaking your corns to this one.

Furthur - Tabernacle Atlanta GA 2/8/10

Stream of the whole concert.

I had an amazing time at this show. The boys got it driving full steam ahead. I missed the first couple of songs trying to score a ticket outside. Fortunately, I got that miracle. Estimated Prophet and Passenger sounded great. The second set was unbelievable. They started with 13 minute Scarlet Begonias right into a killer version of Jack Straw. This show was beyond sold out, but it didn't matter. Everybody was having a good time. I think Molly had a lot to do with that. Lord knows she widened my eyes, and sparkled my ears. Got many a hug and much generosity. Can't wait till the next time.

Here is a real crisp audience recording done by Z-Man. Thanks for sharing this with us.

2001: A Spiritualized Odyssey

Ok, this is amazing. A group called The Almighty Sound redid "2001" the Stanley Kubrick film with a new soundtrack. Yes, easy guess Spiritualized. They did an amazing job. They replaced the audio track, with their choices, of Spiritualized songs. Though you can not hear the actors speak, they did add subtitles. It makes for a very interesting watch. If your a fan of either the film, or band it's a must have. And the best part is they are working on a surround sound 5.1 version that should be out in the near future. I highly recommend you burn one or two and Check it out.

JD Salinger the author of The Catcher In The Rye - the book which John Lennon's killer Mark Chapman was obsessed with - has died aged 91.

The author, who passed away yesterday (January 27) at his home in New Hampshire, died of natural causes.

Salinger famously wrote the American classic Catcher In The Rye, the book which John Lennon's killer Mark Chapman carried with him on the day he shot the musician in December 1980.

Selling over 61 million copies since it was released in 1951, the book and its association with Lennon's death has inspired various films and documentaries, including 2007's Chapter 27, which starred Jared Leto.
