“Eenheid is psychedelische muziek” “Einigkeit macht psychedelische Musik” “L’unité est la musique psychédélique”
Welcome to another two hours of psychedelic music from around the world. This week’s show is the psychedelic sounds of Belgium! These tracks were hard to find, but it was a mostly rewarding search.
Nato . ACTuel Un . Je suis nu dans mon frigo . 1974 . Barclay
This, via discogs: “Nato is a provocative artist (living partly in Paris and partly in Brussels) preoccupied by the act of sex in art. His paintings depicted naked humans in a sexual context. His music is eccentric and strange, suggesting comparisons to Dashiell Hedayat and Emmanuel Booz. Nato made another album in 1982.”
Injun Joe . Indian Priest / Someone 7″ . Indian Priest . 1969 . Reward Records
This unfortunately titled band and song is incredibly good. My brain has yet to solidify after repeated listens to this psych-folk masterpiece.
This German “Krautrock” band features Belgian born keyboardist Joel Vandroogenbroeck. The record was released with a warning label, according to the liner notes of the CD re-release, stating “only listen once a day to this record. Your brain might be destroyed.””
