what is acid?

Acid heads are an unloved demographic in the rave scene.

You see, we love acid music, but nobody else loves acid music. Not even the musicians.

Here is some psychedelic acid music. The Green Nuns Of The Revolution - Klunk, from 0:40 to 2:30.

Here is some London acid music. Magnum Force - Unlucky Punk, from 5:50 to to 8:00.

Here is some Brighton acid music. Pizzaman - The Feeling, from 3:00 to 6:00.

Here is some Hamburg acid music. U96 - Brainkiller, from 0:00 to 0:59. And again from 2:35 to 3:40 (one of my favorite acid sequences of all time btw).

Yes, this is very 90s slanted because i am almost 40 and the fuck. This is my drunken reminiscing. But still. You can listen to modern electronic music today and the same thing happens all over the place.

Acid is injected for tiny little fragments of the song, like it's nothing more than a novelty, the guitar solo of techno. And, you know, that's shit. Acid is the best goddamn bit of techno, exactly like guitar solos are the best goddamn bit of rock music. The 303 deserves front billing, for fuck's sake.

It is very sad that not all rock music is solos and not all techno music is acid.

No acid no likey.

Here is some shameless all acid all the time that i think i haven't posted before. It is from the same era as the above songs. Utrecht acid music, in the spirit of Chicago. Random XS - Zuur.

That is all.
