The Psychedelic Sounds of Post Punk - 4/24/15

Despite the completely understandable desire to rebel against 60s counterculture, psychedelic music still had a major effect on post punk and influenced many of your favorite such bands, though perhaps surprisingly, not so much the Psychedelic Furs. Several sub-genres (Paisley Underground, Shoegaze, Madchester) even splintered off  and embraced the psychedelic sounds of old while other factions simply took the ideals of psychedelia and placed them in a post punk context.

And I for one am glad they did because no matter what preconceived notions one may have about psychedelic music, I think it's hard to deny that it makes the world a more magical place. You know what else is magic? The internet. Like the fact that you can just click on this link below and download the whole show:
