Aas I get back into the swing of things, I need to select a theme for the next FOTH volume.
I was contemplating the following themes:
Bent and batty hippie shit, as in the very stange stuff drugged-out hippes, loonies and communes came up with.
It might just be difficult to listen to a whole CD of the stuff…
Loner-Folk… plenty of interesting stuff abounds but then it might get MIGHTY depressing to listen to.
Far East Fuzz: I am currently listening to a stuff-load of stuff from the far east and asia. We already did a Volume on Cambodian Rock,
as this was a marvelous and exceptional moment in time. The other Asian stuff borders on pure kitsch soemtimes but is strangely enticing. Think Pakistan, India, Indonesia, Singapore, Laos, Thailand etc. This might have to be split in various volumes, because some countries had a relly beat scene and others were mixing traditional music with 60's sound.
Same thing could apply to Middle East and North Africa… it very difficult to find good sources, though.
Still working on gathering more African PSych, but the again, with wars and the general attitude, precious few interesting music remains.
Votes, suggestions of themes… and …help even ARE GLADLY Welcomed. Drop us a comment.
