Psychedelic sounds to Roskilde Festival
Spids Nøgenhat, Yemen Blues and Zun Zun Egui add new acidy colours to the music programme.

This week's music package has all colours of the rainbow. Roskilde Festival presents acid rock, fusion blues and post-everything rock.

SPIDS NØGENHAT (DK) has achieved an almost cult-like status among Danish music freaks. The rare live shows by Spids Nøgenhat are mind-expanding sessions that will appeal to all lovers of psychedelic rock and strange plants. Several of the band members have previously played at Roskilde Festival with Baby Woodrose and Dragontears.

YEMEN BLUES (ISR) blends the ancient sound of the (un)happy Arabia with brass, cross flute and percussion. Everything is brought together by Ravid Kahalani – an Israeli with a Yemeni background – in a fragrant potpourri full of blues and jazzy finesse. An exciting fusion project with numerous scents from both the Middle East, Africa and New York.

ZUN ZUN EGUI (UK) is principally considered a British band – but this is really a rainbow-coloured explosion of nationalities, genres and musical languages. African guitar, Japanese avant-garde and jazzy post-rock from Chicago clash in a dadaist carnival – a sound nightmare for everyone who demands clear-cut genre borders. Fans of Frank Zappa, Mike Patton and Talking Heads will nod appreciatively.
