Psychic Ills and On The Beach

Psychic Ills

OK, so we're not familiar with the Psychic Ills and trance music. But, hey, if they're influenced by Neil Young's music, they must be cool, right?

From Self-Titled Magazine:
Tres Warren (guitar/vocals): The first time I heard Neil Young was because my parents had Harvest and CSNY stuff.  I don’t listen to him too much these days, but whenever I want to hear something older by him, I put On The Beach on.  I like that it’s when he sort of put it in cruise control and just started doing what he did without refining things so much.

Elizabeth Hart (bass): Harvest was my first real listen, too, on a cassette that my best friend’s boyfriend had given to her. I was 14. We created a whole listening ritual for Neil Young—only by candlelight, and while in search of any little piece of paper that looked exciting enough to burn. This kept us occupied and enthralled for hours, and only occasionally would we switch out Neil Young for Metallica on the stereo.

Ya know it never surprises me what artist, new /old,famous or a nobody, that has been touched or influenced by Neil's music in some way.
His music, through his career, has been ever changing in style and mood.
Its diversity is its intrigue. I think Flea from the "chilli peppers" probably sums up Neil's influence best as read in Thrash's blog.."50 reasons why Neil Young is important"

Age or generation is no barrier when it comes to being influenced by Neil's music. New "disciples" will continue to discover the joy ,disappointments and surprises of Neil's music and career......

"..See what it brings
It could be good things
In the air for you"

Truth be known, there is probably a stack more great artists, past and present that have been closet "NEILYS" and are too proud for whatever reason to admit it..

The phychic ills representing the so called "new generation" have "outed themselves"and ironically its an album from the so called "ditch trilogy" that had opened the door to the closet.

Neil Young is an artist's artist.There is no concievable way to measure his influence over the years especially in the late sixtys/early seventies in the so called 'country rock' genra. It still pains me whenever artists who were obviously influenced by Neil fail to give him his props in interviews. To me he has always been musics 'best kept secret'.Lately, however, it seems that more and more giants in the industry are coming forward acknowledging their respect such as Dylan, McCartney, Springsteen.When asked what C.D. he had in his car stereo right now, Bob Seeger replied "Silver & Gold". We all know that out of 600-700 songs, radio plays the 6 or 7, never deviating and giving exposure to the more obscure songs.I suppose he will remain our 'best kept secret'which probably is the way it should be since he never intended to manufacture his career for mass appeal .. the fans that he has are truly his fans - we get it. Thats the beauty of this site to be able to celebrate his legacy with other like minded fans in a way that was once limited to a concert venue.Even Elton John said he almost pissed himself during a duet performance with Neil. McCartney bowing down before him during 'A Day In The Life'? I mean, come on!.. Dylan recently visiting his childhood home? and so it goes with all of my suppressed zeal, I have to consciously refrain from spreading the gospel according to Neil because, quite frankly, after 40 years they still just don't get it!
