The Imagery of Psych: The Photos, Album Covers and Artwork That Defined an Era

imageryofpsych.jpg

Our Long Conversation during our September 11th show centered on the Imagery of Psychedelia. Psychedelia is such a sensory-based experience covering virtually every one of the five senses. We mostly focus on the Hearing aspect on the Psychedelic Experience, but the visual aspect of Psychedelia is an important one. During our show, we always have a lava lamp burning, and when we are at our homes having our own personal listening experiences, the lights are usually set low and the lava lamps are glowing there, as well. We have posters adorning our walls, and we are usually perusing the liner notes on the albums. We even try to incorporate a visual element with our show with our “Fauxtoshopped” (it’s really all done in Paint) posters for each episode. While the aural experience is our primary focus, the visual experience goes hand in hand with it.

Our favorite form of psychedelic imagery is, obviously, album artwork, but when talking about the imagery of psychedelia one cannot forget other forms like photography. Whether it’s concerts, festivals or even moments of the counterculture protests captured on film, some of the most iconic images of the 1960’s were captured by cameras. Concert posters were another incredible form of psychedelic artwork. Below are some of our favorite images. Feel free to comment on ours or share your own favorites.
