psychedelic / space-rock
Psychedelic Music is one of our top three music genres and you will find a fantastic range of top quality titles to look at in this department. We draw from our main database of over 2,000 titles available worldwide - and you won't find a better range of 'Psych'/'Space Rock' titles anywhere in the known universe! For us it all started with Hawkwind, Pink Fairies and to a certain extent Pink Floyd and Eloy! From there it went on through a feast of 'Acid Rock', extended psychedelic guitar jamming and 'Space Rock'. The 90's has spawned a veritable explosion of styles and artists, including the new wave of American 'Space Rock' (F/i, Quarkspace, Born To Go, Pressurhed, Mazinga Phaser etc.,), 'Stoner Rock' (Orange Goblin, Solarized, Fu Manchu & Nebula) and the Swedish 'Space Rock'/'Psych Rock' fraternity led by bands like Darxtar and the spiritual sons of Gong (Ozric Tentacles, Melting Euphoria, Tribe Of Cro, Great Imperial Yoyo, etc.). In the vein of classic Hawkwind, we now see the rise of UK 'Space Rock' (Bedouin, Krel, Spacehead) and the continuing story of the Pink Fairies and Hawkwind, each still making their mark in this new millennium with many USA/German jamming bands coming in from the other side.
Porcupine Tree is undoubtedly a major UK success story - a band that admittedly crosses over into the 'Progressive' field, but they are a huge seller for us and we like to think we have played our small part in the certain mainstream success that is coming to this amazing band. No matter the style, band or indie label it is in this field, we are world leaders in this genre and can be relied upon to fulfill all your needs.
