The first time I ran across Sarah Morrison’s photography, I was perusing psychedelic bands on line. The photo that caught my eye was of a model in a very cool dress, flanked by members of The Electric Prunes.
The Luck of Eden Hall was very fortunate to have recently played a show with Umbra and the Volcan Siege. I watched in awe as Jim Licka played a real Mellotron on the stage. It was white and quite small and not anything like what I had pictured in my mind for all these years.
My friend Gail Potocki first introduced me to Jeremy Bastian’s beautiful illustrations: incredibly detailed drawings inked with a very fine brush. Upon viewing the image he drew of an octopus playing the cello with swords, I found my hand thrust in my pocket grasping for my wallet.
Your Psych Tunes was one of the first MySpace pages I discovered devoted to psychedelia. Somebody had taken the time to gather a wonderful collection of site links for mind travelers to browse and had placed some interesting underground bands on the music player. It was great stuff.
Gail Potocki is a Detroit painter and symbolist. You may wish to take her images at face value, but upon further exploration, you’ll find engaging puzzle pieces that hold the answer to a riddle, an urgent story. She uses oils as a medium and usually hand builds a unique frame for each of the works created.
