December 20, 2023 [Notes/Interviews] [Mixcloud]

A two-hour episode of Turn Me On, Dead Man as the year winds down. It was an eventful year with a lot of great music, although my worries about Bandcamp continue to grow. Moon Goose nicely sums up a chaos with the opening track “2023 A.D.”

December 8, 2023 [Notes/Interviews] [Mixcloud]

Today is December 8th and that date is etched into my memory because it was 43 years ago today that John Lennon was killed. The music in this episode doesn’t have anything to do with John Lennon, except that he was one of the originators of psychedelic rock and his influence is on all of the music I play in one way or another.

It’s never fun to be in a dental chair. To keep my mind off the unpleasantness (just waiting for my dentist to ask, “is it safe?”) I started paying attention to what song was playing on the muzak. “Could It Be I’m Falling In Love?” is now forever ruined for me. To clear my head I put together this hour of recent psychedelia.

A recent trip to New Orleans got me to watch Easy Rider again. One of the defining films of the 1960s, Easy Rider portrayed the counterculture of the 1960s, showing drug use, psychedelic and otherwise, and employing experimental cinematic techniques to convey those surreal experiences. The music featured in this episode of Turn Me On, Dead Man is a variety of current psychedelia, as artists continue to explore further the seemingly boundless range of psychedelic influences.

This episode is as much about going down internet rabbit holes as anything. Train derailments seem to be happening all around us lately. The image of a train wreck is fascinating, one of things you don’t want to see but can’t look away from. The music in this episode is a nice variety of new psychedelia.

I recently took a trip to Minneapolis–nothing quite like the refreshing weather of Minneapolis in February! Luckily we beat the blizzard by a day. Still, while we were there we made the most of it. We stopped by Birchbark Books and we visited what has become known as the Free State of George Floyd. The music in this episode ranges from druggy stoner psych to improvised jams and spacey drones.

Another Super Bowl Sunday has come and gone. It’s strange to think how much the Super Bowl has changed over time. The games are actually competitive now and Super Bowl commercials have become an institution in their own right. Gone are the days of Up With People playing the halftime show. Hard to believe, but Up With People actually performed at FIVE Super Bowls (V, X, XIV, XVI and XX). So anyway, the playlist for this episode of Turn Me On, Dead Man would would make an excellent trippy Super Bowl halftime show.

Byrd In Flight cover

This episode is a tribute of sorts to David Crosby, who died earlier this month at the age of 81. The tracks in this episode are psychedelic rock ranging from stoner to improvisational jams–not really David Crosby’s sort of music, but he left his indelible stamp on psychedelia from his time with the Byrds and other artists he was associated with.

A new year and a one-hour set of recent psychedelia. I asked the bands if they had any new year’s resolutions and my favorite answer was from Firefriend who said they wanted to play around the world before WW3. The tracks in this episode originate from the US, Canada, Australia, the UK, Argentina, Brazil, Finland, Switzerland and the Netherlands.
