Today’s Music to keep me SAAAAnnnnEEEE in Isolation – Grateful Dead

The Dead seemed to epitomise the whole of that West Coast sixties counterculture. They came out of that San Franciscan scene with their hypnotic brand of acid rock. They were a band who had served their time learning the trade as an R&B unit called the Warlocks and then providing feedback and noise for Ken Kesey’s Acid Tests.

I saw them in San Francisco a few years back – going under the name Furthur (Ken Kesey’s truck’s name). They were still brilliant.

So today I’ll play with the Dead.

  1. Hmm, yes.
    I got caught up on the starship hijack – side 2- of Blows Against the Empire, for quite some time. Still think it brilliant. There’s aYoutube of the whole Starship Suite… somewhere.
    Hmm, yes.

  2. Ooh I love Grateful Dead! I just recently started listening to them after learning about them in two of my courses and I am super into their music right now.

I'd like to hear from you...
