firstly thanks to all my lovely twitter fiends who suggested some Friday night listening music for my pleasure (including Joe who suggested Hardcore band United Nations for some aural destruction).
But finally we are starting to get a little darkness here in downtown Reykjavik (or some VERY dark dusk for several hours). But it was a lovely warm sunset, and this gave me mind to listen to one of the best Space/psych rock anthems for a blazing sunset that ever existed.
Bardo Pond are a Philadelphia band who’ve been around for nearly 20 years now but they’ve never really got the same level of success that the likes of Spiritualized received. Mind you they are a lot heavier on the riffage than Messers Pierce and his ilk. This track is from their second album, the 1996 release “Amanita”. “Limerick”, the opening track, i will go on record as saying, is probably the most full-on monumental Space /Psych/Acid rock epic song i´ve heard… EVER. It out- soundgardens Soundgarden when they tried this with their track “Searching with My Good Eye Closed”.
What you need are some good quality drugs (NOT candarel sweetener kids) and a nice hillside atop a mountain or glacier at 2am with a glowing sun above the horizon. Then have that life-altering experience….. You know it makes sense..
