None More Punk July 06

July 18th, 2006 by Crossfire

Special Punk Psych-Out Show!

Welcome to the mind melt. We come to turn your minds to jelly. This month None More Punk has gone psychedelic and we’re diving headlong into a world of fuzz box guitars, lurching garage rock and LSD inspired lunacy.

Strap yourself in and let DJ’s James Sherry and Zac Slack dose you up with an hour of the best proto-punk psychedelia you could hope to hear.

Much of the show is derived from the classic ‘Nuggets: Original Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Era 1965-1968‘ boxset on Rhino Records.

This four CD set collects the best singles from this period that somehow slipped under the mainstream radar, or were just too damn weird. This music was a huge influence on the first wave of punk and shares many similarities, capturing the same reckless energy and drug-crazed rebellion as The Damned, Sex Pistols etc. Fuck the history lesson though, this is just great music, the when’s and where’s don’t really matter, just turn it up and drop yourself a cheeky half.

This show is dedicated to Syd Barrett, the original founder of Pink Floyd who passed away recently. Syd took the raw sounds of garage rock and propelled them into another dimension, changing the course of music forever. Despite having not set foot in a recording studio since 1974, his importance in music is unsurpassed. This one’s for you Syd, you legend…

Remember when you were young,
you shone like the sun
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there’s a look in your eyes
like black holes in the sky,
Shine on you crazy diamond.
You were caught on the crossfire of
childhood and stardom,
blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for far away laughter,
come on you stranger,
you legend, you martyr and shine….
