full


Satori was a one man group from Houston. Dennis Warkentin played everything in sight for this one. The song featured on 'Acid Visions' is 'Time Machine', the B-side of the single is '1000 Micrograms of Love'.
'Time Machine' is one of the most frantic all out rockers of the 60s, much like '7 & 7 Is' by Love. The lead guitar has a high trebly sound that eats at you through the whole song and doesn't let up. Truely one of the most unique things out of Texas, collectors will be looking hard for this one.....

“Your eyes light up with a lightning bolt, As I see your brain, And you travel through a thunderstorm, Of electric rain…”

What were they putting in the water in Texas in the late 1960s? The Lone Star State was home to so many garage psych classics it beggars belief. This particular mind mangling monster was the work of multi-instrumentalist Dennis Warkentin from Houston. It was released on the Steffek label, which also put out 45s by The Lavender Hour and The Cave Dwellers.

The a-side is somewhat downbeat and bluesy with gruff vocals. But at its heart it is advocating a Summer of Love lifestyle – “There’s one thing missing from your Great Society, Something that we all need…”. The dosage suggested would of course be so extreme as to shatter all notions of conventional reality.
