Christian Psychedelic music?

Post by lhversaw on Fri Jul 15, 2016 7:28 pm

Yes that's right Christian Psychedelic Music from the 60's and 70's.  So does it exist?  WELL YES IT DOES.  I came across a site 1960's Christian Music online and while MOST are not my cup of tea there are some Christian Rock groups most of those are more of the Garage Style but there are a couple of Psych bands as well.  I actually bought Brother John Rydgren's Silhouette Segments cd set and it was very interesting Psychedelia in the vein of Jim Morrisons solo album of poetry over Doors Muisc.  Now Rydgren used music in general not doors.  Now If you don't know John Rydgrens Story Please check out the links that I posted here  and here. 

Now in the liner notes of this material, which by all rights should no longer even exist if you do know the story of this cd release if not lets just say that it is a miracle that any of this stuff wasn't destroyed as most of it was sent to stations with instructions to do so after air play.  Obviously some didn't do it.  Anyway in the liner notes several bands were mentioned in this Christian Psych scene.  So here are some bands that are a must to check out if you are into this style

Fraction - Moon Blood
Out Of Darkness - Celebration Club Sessions
The Trees Community - The Christ Tree
David Bixby - Ode To Quetzalcoatl (one of three albums)
Ark  - Voyages
D.R. Hooker - Truth
Agape - The Problem Is Sin: Live And Unreleased (They also have several albums)
Exkursions - Exkursions
Concrete Rubber Band - Risen Savior
Azitis - Help (Also have another album with a nearly identical album cover but different album)
Earthen Vessel - Hard Rock, Everlasting Life
Holy Ghost Reception Committee #9 - The Collected Works

Now not quite Psych but still very good Christian Garage Rock

The Advocates - The Advocates  are a good one to get too.

Now I know that there must be more Christian Psych bands and I know that I will find them with some more research but this is what I have found.  I hope that some of you might ACTUALLY like this genre as well and maybe even have something to add.

I have Fraction, Exkursions, and HGRC#9.

Fraction and Exkursions are pretty good.  HGRC#9 is...interesting.  Their first album is more psych than their second (although both are on one disc on the CD reissue).  I'll have to check the others out.  Any of them available on CD?

The Exkursions have been reissued on CD by a division of Retroactive Records as has Jimmy Hotz and Amaziah.  I have TWO copies of the Amaziah CD for sale or trade in the Peddler's Corner.

Cool! I like Fraction. Added some of the above to my list. 

My favorite examples are from bands that are primarily alternative but dabble into psychedelic: Daniel Amos - Traps Ensnares



The Prayer Chain - Sun Stoned
