Places to Be
These are the places to be for any ‘groovy cats’ who find themselves at a loose end waiting for the next kaleidoscopic delivery from Head Full of Snow. ‘Dig the scene’ and all that:
Late Mag – The coolest site on the internet. Home to cult cinema, music, books and a dash of gadgetry goodness. If that’s not enough, it also boasts the excellent Breathe Modern, a master-class in all that’s chic in the world of modern design and style. A true internet magazine, brought exhaustively to you by a pair of super-talented writers. What’re you waiting for? Get one’s self over there pronto.
Eclect Elect – More stuff and ting from one half of LateMag’s core writing partnership. The freelance feature writing world is missing out on a prodigious talent. This needs remedying. In the meantime, get in on the ground floor before fame comes a knocking and she’s hotfooting it around the world in a gold-plated private jet. Close your hands and hold out your eyes… For it is Eclect Elect.
Revolving Video – Simply the best movie podcast on this here internet. If news, reviews and madcap Geordie banter is what you’re after, look no ruddy further.
Sid Smith’s Postcards From the Yellow Room – Excellent blog from rock writer and critic Sid Smith, whose words have graced everything from Classic Rock Presents Prog to Record Collector magazine. Also home of the regular sojourn into music of the weird, wonderful and obscure – Podcasts From the Yellow Room.
Trip Inside This House – Also dedicated to everything psychedelic and therefore a good place to drop into once you’re tired of my nonsense. Some real rare finds discussed here as well as better known psych, combining to make a thoroughly entertaining website for the lovers of this music.
Marmalade Skies – A site primarily dedicated to British psychedelia of the 60s. A good source of information for anybody wanting to know more about a number of Brit bands that rode the psychedelic wave, many of whom have been long since forgotten. Be sure to sport your rose-tinted specs though, as the ‘far-out’ colour scheme comes at you a little bit sudden.
Psychedelic Sight – A smorgasboard of psychedelic goodness. Revolving around the 50 greatest psych albums and the 100 greatest psych songs but also offering more, this site is well worth a look.
