U.K. PSYCH IN THE 1960s
Cool documentary examining the most imaginative time in British pop music history; five psychedelic years from 1965 to 1970 when the boundaries of pop music exploded into a Technicolor rock and roll extravaganza. When the mid-60s R&B and beat groups discovered LSD, the conventions of rock and roll and pop music were overturned and unrestrained creativity ruled the day. The music charts got very weird.

Experimentation, expanding consciousness, and a serious endeavor to gain creativity and intellectual insights, devolved into getting high for fun. Look for vintage footage of 1960's teenagers and dance clubs. Freakout dancing at the UFO club, the Speakeasy and the Alexandra Palace 14-hour Technicolor extravaganza. Lots of footage of people taking LSD and tripping tripping their brains out.

The psychedelic scene included fashion, look for cool footage of Carnaby Street and the psychedelic fashions of "Granny Takes a Trip." The International Times was the underground newspaper that spread the word of the scenes and happenings of the day.

Plus this bonus selection...

BRITISH PSYCHEDELIC STUDENT FILM 1972
A pulsating and bizarre assortment of sights, sounds and odd imagery coagulate to become a "trip on film." Very British in it's look and feel, not the complete hippie-vibe of America. Surprisingly ambitious production. Would make a good "midnight movie."
