Yes finally the all new Heavy Psych Explosion Vol 6. Keeping up with previous volumes this is a collection of the Best and Heaviest undersground sounds of the late 60's and early 70's. The beautiful grainy cover photo features Captain Foam blasting away with his 4 stack amps with his drummer well hidden in the background. This photo really sets the mood for this compilation. I hope you all have a blast and get the reissues of the gems that are featured here.

This new volume contains following monsters:

Aguaturbia (Chile)
Captain Foam
Jun Kamikubo (Jap)
The Finchley Boys
Experiencia (Brazil)
The Jarvis Street Revue (Can)
Day Blindness
Brain Police
Baby Grandmothers (Swe)
Riders of the Mark
Cerebrum (Spa)

All tracks Mp3's from Lp and Cd sources


  1. Any chance of volumes 3, 4, or 5? And what is the origin of these comps? Are they self-made? I cannot find them or anybody who knows anything about them. Just curious. Either way, some real cool stuff, on these.

  2. All these comps are made by myself because a few years back people were clueless to this music so I put together them. They were popular approx 300 - 400 downloads on each.

    I deleted the original Heavypsychman blog last year because I took it as long as I could, so all links were gone.

    I found a few Cdrs with vol 1 & 2 so I posted them because I noticed interest seems to be up again. And I had enough stuff for a new volume this one Vol 6

    I agree these underground comps kick most of the commercially available things like the Overdose of Heavypsych/Hardpsych series of Arf Arf rec's.

    Void recs has a interesting Psych Compilation on CD which I recomend it's closer to mine. Brain Hulitt of Void rec's is a Heavypsych fan, his resissues of Javis Street revue, Sainte Anthony's Fyre and Bolder Damn are great.


  3. Sorry that I missed the original incarnation of the blog! Good luck with this one. As far as newer comps go, I really enjoyed this year's FORGE YOUR OWN CHAINS: HEAVY PSYCHEDELIC BALLADS AND DIRGES 1968-1974, on Now-Again. Doesn't quite live up to the "heavy" and "dirges" tags, on most of the tracks, but there's still some incredible stuff (some obvious stuff, too, but that's all good). It has a real global feel, which is kind of unusual for many psych comps, so that was a welcome change of pace. Not sure of the particulars of your taste, but you should at least give it a go.

  4. I've seen that CD.. well okay Psych comp..most of those things go flat because of copyright problems etc. Me thinks it had Ellison (Can) on it.. track Strawberry Rain is a good song though. Give me a link for it.

    Thanks for ya comment


  5. I can't seem to post links in my comments, but I can't find any active ones, anyway. I was lucky enough to snag a 2xLP copy for like $14, at Chicago's Permanent Records, last week. Great deal. Too bad the Baby Grandmothers 2xLP was like $30+. Too rich for my blood. Anyway, yes--the Ellison song is on there, and it is good. Other highlights include Top Drawer's "Song of a Sinner," Ofege's "It's Not Easy," and Kourosh Yaghmaei's "Hajm-e Khaali."

    ...And thank YOU for what looks like a very promising blog! Keep up the good work, mate.

  6. Thanks for your comments

    Yes Reissue Vinyl is expensive due to small runs 300 - 500 and mark ups aswell.

    If you have links to good psych feel free to share them
