Losing Touch With My Mind - Psychedelia In Britain 86-90 - 3CD
A startling collection charting the C86 generation’s brazen raid on the second half of the 60s, from their fashion sense to their music to their drugs of choice.
Taking The Velvets, The Doors, The Byrds and a plethora of psych originals found on the "Nuggets" and "Pebbles" compilations as inspiration, the latter half of the 1980s saw bands across the UK replace their angular post-punk sound with a gentler, weirder direction, fusing jangly guitars and bowl haircuts, paisley heavy wardrobes and the remnants of the glam, goth and garage revival scenes with a new positivity and enlightenment offered by the ecstasy and LSD that began to reach every suburb and estate in the land.
From the shoegaze movement to Madchester, the Mods to the out and out revivalists and beyond, all of these disparate but intertwined scenes collide in wonderful harmony again on "Losing Touch With My Mind". 60 tracks from artists such as Spacemen 3, The Stone Roses, Boo Radleys, The Telescopes, Cleaners From Venus, Robyn Hitchcock & The Egyptians, Sun Dial, and many more.
