‘A fantastic, exhaustive history of the genre: comprehensive but gripping, packed with eye-opening period detail and with a brilliant analysis of everything from Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band to the oeuvre of the Crocheted Doughnut Ring.’ — Alexis Petridis, The Guardian


Join our friends at Rough Trade East to celebrate the publication of Psychedelia and Other Colours by Rob Chapman. on Thursday the 27th of August at 7:00pm.

Chapman’s seminal new study of psychedelia explores, in crystalline detail, the history, precedents and cultural impact of LSD.

The live event at Rough Trade East will feature author, Rob Chapman, in conversation with DJ, producer, remixer and Acid House pioneer, Andrew Weatherall.

Accompanying us throughout this celebration will be DJ Justin Roberston, digging deep into the recesses of his collection to play some tunes.

Playing live after the Q&A will be Magnetic Mind. Taking inspiration from psychedelic pop, folk-rock, and B-movies from the 1960s and 70s, the Magnetic Mind’s harmony-laden sound has drawn comparisons with the likes of the Association, Shocking Blue, and Jefferson Airplane.

A purchase of the book (either online or in-store) gives you two wristbands for free entry.
