Huxley’s Big Trip: A Lysergic Musical Adventure

MIX: Gareth E. Rees

COVER ART: Hollis

Toot! Toot! Time for another psychedelic cross-dimensional adventure with Unofficial Britain.

This time your tour guide is Aldous Huxley, with guest chanting by Aleister Crowley, folk tale nightmares by Angela Carter, terrifying views of Manchester from a bus window as witnessed by John Doran, Dolly Dolly reading the personal ads, and the stutterings of a man called Terrence… all washed down with lashings of lysergic acid.

I’ve listed the artist and tracks below – please support them by buying their music.
