"The dictionary describes psychedelic music as, “A style of rock music popular in the late 1960s that was largely inspired by hallucinogens, or so-called ‘mind-expanding’ drugs such as marijuana and LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide, also known as ‘acid’), and that reflected drug-induced states through the use of feedback, electronics, and intense volume.” The above definition may be correct for the rest of the world, but our isolation meant that in early 1967 as Planet Earth was turning on and tripping out to a wild new post-pop music genre emanating out of London, San Francisco and Los Angeles, the drug influenced experimental psychedelic scene in New Zealand had to make do with very little of everything. To get a hold of illicit drugs in New Zealand (the last stop before Antarctica) you either had to know a sailor or a friend of a sailor, while LSD was something that we could only read about in overseas magazines." http://www.audioculture.co.nz/
