The Seeing Eye Gods

Brett Gurewitz of punk band Bad Religion and his alleged drug dealer (no, I’m not gonna name him) put out an album of psychedelic music in 1985 under the name The Seeing Eye Gods. I heard two of the songs (“Psychedelic Suzy” and “Strawberry Girl”) on a college radio station and immediately loved them.

There are only five songs on the album – the same five on both sides. The album itself is a picture disc with a red and green paisley design on it, and came in a plastic pouch. The only other thing in the pouch was the “jacket,” which was a lightweight piece of cardboard, printed – in almost-unreadable magenta and cyan – on one side only with the liner notes and graphics. You can see it in the video (link below), along with various views of the picture disc.

I spent fifteen years trying to track down a copy of this album! I finally found one online – some guy in Iowa or somewhere had it in his indie record shop. Also online, I discovered why it was so hard to find: apparently only a thousand copies of it were made. I’m happy I was able to find one.

“Roxanne”

No, not the song by The Police. This one’s a mostly overlooked bit of psychedelia by three brothers from Texas who called themselves The Chaparral Trio. I’ve found very little info about them online.

It’s a great song. I only wish there was a stereo version — this song deserves it.

You can find it on this compilation CD:
A Deadly Dose of Wylde Psych

My Unintentional Series of Paintings

I wasn’t actually trying to do a series, but it looks like one has developed across several of my paintings. I can’t help noticing a through-line from
Night Voyage” to “At Sea,” and now to “Ferry.” They’re all about, well, night voyages, and for whatever reason, the color blue-green features prominently. They seem to represent excitement and adventure to me — venturing out into the unknown.
