Radiohead on my first trip?
    #3110521 - 09/08/04 11:27 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I have never tripped on shrooms before but am eagerly awaiting my first time. Unfortunately having trouble scoring some in my area though (LA, argh.. thought it would be easy). Anyway I've been told that music is an important part of the experience and that I should put on something that I like. Well my favorite band is Radiohead, but I'm worried that their music might be too depressing for the trip? I love their stuff but I wonder if it might bring me down or have a negative effect because their music isn't exactly sunshine and rainbows? Anyone have any comments on this? Should I listen to something more upbeat? It sounds great on weed.

Go ahead and play it but be sure to mix your music up a bit

The best music for tripping is Electronica. It almost seems like it was made specifically for tripping. It's also best to listen to an album you've never heard. If you're just a beginner to Electronica, try Tranceport by Paul Oakenfold, or In Search of Sunrise vol. 3 by DJ tiesto. Its some good upbeat psychedelia.

expectations are completely blown by trips. you might even find radiohead.. uplifting! there are some slightly depressing songs that i've loved on shrooms. jst try anything but only so long as your still in control of your body and are able to change it or turn it off :wink: i found that one out of the hard way :frown:

Depends what mood you're in at the time. Have a choice of fave stuff handy, in case it's not the right thing for the right moment. Dub reggae is good and safe. Having said that, I bet The Bends would sound fantastic. I'm off to play it right now.
Happy trails!

Awesome... first time I heard Radiohead, my friend was playing Kid A (this was also the first time I got high on weed).

IT WAS THE BEST MUSIC I HAD EVER HEARD

As a Radiohead Expert. I highly recommend Kid A to be listened to from beginning to end since it is somewhat of a concept album and is often ambient enough to let you get your head straight. Definitely good tripping music.

The last song on the Bends blows my mind even when I am straight, and man if you can you should watch the video. The video is in black and white and there are people moving in slow motion while other people walk around next to them. There is this one guy who jumps in slow motion while the other guy moves a stick back and forth underneath him in normal speed. Blows my mind, man. Blows my mind.

Plenty parts of OK Computer are uplifting. I need to play that album next time I mush, especially those first 5 songs. Let Down while peaking...that'll be something.

Kid A and Amnesiac would be good too.

My experiences with mush and music have been kind of weird though. It's best to have it in the background and not really concentrate on it. When I concentrate on it, it just sounds like I'm listening to the album sober, nothing that different about it. If I let my mind wander, the music begins to surprise me and influence the trip.

I think you would like Loveless by My Bloody Valentine. I listened to that while staring out a window at the last remaining bits of a sunset (while tripping). The feeling was indescribable. It pushed me to the darkest depths of ecstasy, if that makes any sense.

I actually went to a radiohead concert on an 1/8 which was last summer near Cleveland. I was brought by some friends who at the time told me I would fall in love with the band. Not really listening to too much of their stuff before I went. Well let's just say I was COMPLETELY BLOWN AWAY. Just try to look at the music in a positive light and You'll be fine. If any of you have the chance at seeing them live, do it. Amazing lightshow! Amazing Band! Amazing Experience! At the end of the concert there was a word squiggling back and forth on the screen above the stage. The word was "FOREVER"..... One of the best feelings ever was looking at my friends all with big smiles upon there faces. We were all joined together as ONE. I had tears of joy stream down my face. ONE LOVE

That is awesome.

I have some of their concert videos on my computer but haven't been able to see them live yet. But yes they are definitely one of the best live bands out there. They sound at least as good live as they do on their CDs.

Radiohead fans should pick up a DVD called "Meeting People is Easy."

311's Transistor record is by far the best tripping album you'll ever listen to. It is simply amazing and space stylish.. it just puts you in another world.

I absolutly LOVE radiohead. If you get the chance man, buy this dvd called "Stargazer: Views of space by Hubbletelescope" and play Hail To The Theif along with it. I did this once and it was amazing. Sit in a dark room with just the tv on (turn the sound off because they play this really cheese-ass classical music, I mean its horrible and Im a major fan of classical music) and Hail To The Theif along side it. It should blow your mind, it did mine! And if you have ever read 1984 by Geroge Orwell, you'll find Hail To The Theif lines up with the book really well!
