This is a ridiculous example of how Psychedelic Sabatth infused rock traveled across the pacific. You have groups like Flower Travelling Band, but did you know about Shin Joon Hyung? He is exemplary of the music that hit the Korean rock scene during the era of psych rock. Hyung is a damn bad ass psychedelic guitar maestro. This needs to be loved an enjoyed. You need him in your music life . GET ON IT
Light in the Attic puts it well, “Shin Joong Hyun’s tale is personal, spiritual, and deep, not only reflecting the full spectrum of human emotions, but one that produced reverberating echoes of sound, some beautiful and life-giving, others restless and ungovernable.
Inspired by jazz, soul, and traditional Korean music, Shin started his career in the mid-1950’s, performing for US troops stationed locally after the Korean War armistice of 1953. While his English language skills were limited, the young player had no trouble communicating through his trusty electric guitar, but Shin was no mere 6-string slinger for hire, he was able to communicate something far beyond your average professional musician. Production work and extensive songwriting followed”
Dig on this in a big way.
