Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia are thrilled to announce the release of PZYK Vol.1 - a deluxe triple vinyl compilation celebrating the current neo-psychedelic underground. Featuring a mix of exclusive tracks, re-mixes, rarities and album cuts, the compilation spans and charts the global PZYK diaspora, with artists from around the world contributing to an international selection comprising 30 of the current movement’s key noisemakers. All the artists featured on the release have either performed at Liverpool Psych Fest, or are heading to Liverpool for this year’s festival, set to be held over the weekend of 25th/26th September within Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle.
PZYK Vol.1 features Goat, K-X-P, Clinic, Föllakzoid, Jane Weaver, Blanck Mass, Fever The Ghost, POW!, The Lucid Dream and many, many more....
Writing for the release’s liner notes, The Quietus’ Julian Marszalek observed, “Just as ownership of a wah-wah pedal and a phalanx of effects doesn’t mean you’ve got a psychedelic band, neither does a grouping of such acts make for a psychedelic festival. Similarly, a fetishisation of the 1960s and a retro outlook through rose-tinted headphones isn’t a statement of what’s happening in the here and now of the 21st century. No, what’s needed is an understanding of the form; how it’s developed and mutated into something new while retaining the all-important ability to startle the listener from accepted forms of reality into an altered state. And this is where the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia truly succeeds.”
Marszalek continues, “As evidenced by this epic release, this is a broad church and one not limited to orthodoxy or limited structures. Over these six sides of vinyl you’ll find contained the bands that have come to define the well-deserved reputation of this incredible annual event. And as the music flows from your speakers, you’ll come to realise that contributions have come from all over the globe. We’re not alone; this is happening the world over and for one very special weekend at the end of September in the north west of England, the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia crystalizes this movement into something quite beautiful. There are many levels of experience to unravel and this is the place to start.”
