Initially formed as the backing band for George Clinton’s Parliament, Funkadelic spun off and released their first self titled solo album in 1970 after Parliament ran into legal issues. Funkadelic takes the funk sound George Clinton began pioneering with Parliament into an acid rock direction fronted by lead guitarist Eddie Hazel. “I Bet You” is the second track off the album and features the trading off of vocal lead lines within a verse that was a defining Clinton sound #fun#funkic #psychadelic#rock#acid#georgeclinton#70smusic #funk #eddiehazel#lp#vinyl#musichistory
Done under a heavy dosage of LSD this recent experience brought my senses to a once again unified understanding of total oneness with the universe and the particle make up of its very foundations. I began to experience a feeling of separation from my body (my "vessel") and experienced a sense of oneness with a form of collective energy. My body felt as though I can only describe it to be feline in nature, a feeling of a sort of return to primordial senses occurred, while still experiencing the feeling of being "human" I'd never felt so animal, so connected to the natural occurrences of nature. My mind raced with a new found understanding of our illusory perception of time, I could "feel" and "see" myself in a stream of various placements in "time", various moments in our experiences. Standing upon the edge of my primordial cave overlooking a vast and primal landscape, a hunter preparing for his day, progressing to be atop a pyramid, a great pharo overlooking a vast and glorious desert empire. My concept of time was revealed to be illusory, for this is all one moment, I felt that our 3 dimensional perception of time within these vessels was only temporary, our return to a pure collective oneness is an essential moment in our collection of moments. We are one with every particle, every subatomic occurrence. This piece was my hope and effort to capture a sense of human and primal nature, the tool is a spear, hammer, and paint brush, representing the various forces of expression and creation of our kind, while the eye within the spear represents our connectedness to all things and our intrequet ability to create and perceive reality simultaneously. #lsd#lsd #lsd #art#ske#sketch #sketch #trip#tool#conciousness#oneness#perception#psychadlicart#psychadlicrock#psychadelic#alexgrey#primal#animal#human#eye#hand#acid#acidtrip#acidtabs
