Radio 2 psychedelic screensaver

DAVID QUANTICK presents a 2-part documentary examining the changing face of psychedelic music, from the swirling shapes and sounds of the sixties to the retro-pop of the early nineties and today's eclectic dance scene.

The programme looks at the progression of the psychedelic movement, examining the music, the drugs and the people who were instrumental in its development and success.

We've put together this special feature which looks at the origins and enduring influence of Pyschedelia, including links to artist profiles, recommended albums and a special psychedelic screensaver for you to download. How did it evolve in the USA? Was there more to British psychedelia than Sgt. Pepper? Where's a good place to start collecting classic albums?

It's all here - let's take a trip...
