Psych Special: Psych Britannia
Former Tomorrow, Pretty Things and Pink Fairies drummer Twink recalls the dawn of UK psych
I moved to London from Colchester in late 1964, so I was right there as the psych scene developed. It was such an exciting time, because there were no musical rules. Everyone was experimenting with different sounds, we all felt there was a creative freedom. Obviously, we were influenced by west coast bands like the Electric Prunes, but we took this as a starting point for our own variations on the garage sound.
