Psychedelic Finland

Welcome to another two hours of psychedelic music from around the world.  Last week Sweden, this week Finland, maybe next week Russia? No, next week I’ll be in Idaho, so you’ll have the Rock Doctor of Rock Geek FM filling in.  Make sure to tune in for some knowledge, and a funky good time!

Like Sweden, Finland might not come to mind when you think about psychedelic music, but it actually has a super long history of psychedelia and garage psychedelia.  If you dig that mid to late ’60s psych and garage rock sound, you’ll dig early Finnish psych.  A lot of it is hard to find a hard copy of, but check out all that you’ll be hard pressed to find on this blog: Beyond the Calico Wall Finland.

I’m going to try something different with this week’s playlist and post the youtube video of the song if it’s available.  If it isn’t, I’ll do as usual and post the album cover and other info.

Turn on.
