LSD MADE A WRECK OF ME
To note the recent passing of Dr. Albert Hoffman, the Father of LSD, here's a few amusing curios mainly from (when else?) the 1960s.
Circle Of Tyrants: Acid - The Story Of L.S.D. - Dialogue and garage rock from an educational filmstrip
Wendell Austin: LSD - thanks to a reader (Martin, I think?) who sent me this country toe-tapper a while ago
Peter Cook & Dudley Moore: L.S. Bumblebee - from two giants of British comedy
Fe-Fi-Four Plus 2: I Wanna Come Back (from the World of LSD) - another garage rocker
Vic Caesar: Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds - Lounge swinger from a cat who worked the West Coast casino scene, including (but of course) Caesar's Palace; he also wrote a groovy campaign song for Nixon that was released on Capital Records.
Pineapples from the Dawn of Time: Too Much Acid - '80s punky piss-take, from a 7"
