As for fiction Lewis Carroll of course.
Then more modern children's fantasy would include Susan Cooper's The Dark is Rising sequence. Anything by Lloyd Alexander. Ursula le Guin's Earthsea trilogy. The Neverending Story (not the films..)

Psychedelic folk and only one tiny mention of the Holy Modal Rounders?

yeah.. there probably is a bit of 'Brit' bias to all this.

one of my favourite bands from the 60's
is the US "Kaleidoscope"

Holy Modal Rounders, of course; and Michael Hurley, whose work continures to baffle & inspire unto this day - 19th October 2010 when I filmed myself singing Hog of the Forsaken for YouTube but can't decide if it's quite right...

There used to be an excellent film to accompany Hurley's Hog on youtube but it seems to have been taken down. It was everything a pop video should be, shot on film (8mm by the look of things), having only fleeting connotative engagement with the music AND a figure (the 'Hog' presumably) with a papier mache head. Truly fine work.

"Sara and Hoppity"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kR6FQG0H9-I


Bloody Norah. All these years I've been convinced I imagined S&H or misremembered something else. And all the while it was real! Real I tell you! Or possibly surreal - those close-up doll faces have a definite 'uncanny valley' quality which reminds me of Paula Rego.

Course, we didn't really do sensitivity in those days:

- 'Hoppity'? Why do you call him that?
"Because he's only got one leg and he can't dance properly."

This, on the other hand, definitely isn't psych folk, but is probably one of the most horrific slices of children's tv ever...

Oh, what the hell - I've just got my complementary copy of the new Stirrings through the door which features my musings on Fiddles - so by way of celebration here's my thing from yesterday:

ISB and particulary Robin Williamson was the master of psych folk - meandering melodies, stunning compositions, lyrics and accopaniments.

The modern equivalent artists tend to have the musical feel of the 60s psych folk back drops but without the melodic or structural invention (such as Espers and Devendra Banhart)

One modern piece that evokes the haunting vibes of yore is this

Thanks for posting this ArrowHead. Must dig my The Story stuff out and play it. Wonder what's happened to them? Not heard anything since the excellent Arcane Rising.

Of course, they have the continuity with the 60s stuff in that Martin Welham was part of Forest...

Robin Williamson was the master of psych folk

His 2006 ECM album The Iron Stone contains his finest work to date, IMO - a masterpiece from a true master!

They featured on the dark folk Britannia compilation John Barleycorn Reborn with their track 'The Wicker Man' (no relation to the film soundtrack). You can hear it here

Ha ha, encouraging to see that this thread is still receiving occasional visits three years on! Some great links shared above, so many thanks for these.

I'm having some trouble creating a new thread at the moment - Joe is helping me out with that, but whilst I struggle through to that point I wanted to share news of an folk show with a heavy dose of psych that we've arranged for next month:

Comus
Shirley Collins
Hladowski/Joynes

Islington Assembly Hall

Sat Sept 21st

...Full details at the Facebook event page &
milesosmiles.co.uk , and I hope to get a separate thread up soon...!

It's been established that folk singers are psychos. :)
