Witches Hats & Painted Chariots: The Incredible String Band and the 5,000 Layers of Psychedelic Folk Music
The Incredible String Band: the whole story – Album-by-album critiques – Solo work – Their legacy and influence on 21st century bands – Comus – Mark Fry – Principal Edwards Magic Theatre – Spirogyra – Forest – Dr Strangely Strange – The Wicker Man – Medieval folk-rock of the 70s – Third Ear Band – Circulus and more. Witches Hats & Painted Chariots covers a broad spectrum of British underground folk-rock from a lengthy selection of articles on acid-folk pioneers The Incredible String Band to the acts that followed in their footsteps. Folk and psychedelia held hands around the maypole while drug-inspired lyricism collided with traditional music, pagan mythology and spiritualism to create a sound and lifestyle that still resonate today. This delightfully-designed book overflows with sumptuous visuals and exclusive features no one has presented the work and influence of the String Band with such vivid colour and insight.
