Introduction by Julian Cope

"So when I talk about psychedelic rock, I don't mean hippie music (like Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, etc.) at all, I mean the all-too-few records produced by teenage bands in the short time between their discovery of hallucinogenic drugs and the end of their particular line of rock evolution. What makes these records interesting is that the basic attitudes, styles and mentalities that made punk rock so attractive and inspirational to us in retrospect, were solidly behind the move into psychedelia.
Only the imagery changed, and with it an increase in the potential for extreme naivete and stupidity which were punk's prime attributes. [ ... ]

Obviously, psychedelic drugs affected different people in different ways. Tim Leary and his intellectual friends were wafted into oriental mysticism, but imagine the effects on the kids in punk bands whose mental worlds up to then had revolved around cars, girls, beaches and detention. They saw the colors, heard the voices, and what else could they do? They freaked out!"
