Pink Floyd、Spacemen 3、My Bloody Valentine、The Verve等迷幻之音，都是我們喜歡的名字，可惜從沒機會一睹他們在台上演出的風采；幸好，近年多了些新生代迷幻樂隊來港演出，如TOY、Temples、Psychic Ills、Tame Impala、Bo Ningen、Pond等，慰藉相思之苦，最新就有來自智利的Föllakzoid。
三人行的Föllakzoid，包括音結化手兼主唱Juan Pablo Rodrigues、結他手Domingo García-Huidobro和鼓手Diego Lorca，樂隊於2008年出道，以玩奏簡約、即興、虛幻、吵耳的迷幻音樂見稱，由2009年的同名專集《Föllakzoid》到後來的《II》和《III》，這三部曲中那既Drone又Stoned的氛圍，極之懾人。不少人說Föllakzoid是Spacemen 3的再生，去年樂隊跟Spacemen 3、Spiritualized的主腦Jason Pierce合作，帶來《London Sessions》，碟內即場收音的方式，重新灌錄《III》專集裡兩首長達11多分鐘作品《Electric》和《Earth》，那失真虛幻的聲音，引領聽眾進入一個迷離國度。
Föllakzoid將於3月7日來到香港演出一場，是夜還有本地Instrument-Rock樂隊Life Was All Silence作暖場。Föllakzoid現場演中比片更富張力更為懾人，將即興迷幻的魔力發揮到極緻，這一個晚上，可能是油麻地史上最迷幻的幾小時。

Föllakzoid, hailed as “the grand maestros of the resurgence of Chilean psych-rock” by Noisey magazine — . Heavily informed by the heritage of the ancient music of the Andes, the band has learned to integrate this influence with contemporary sounds of their times, creating a rich yet minimal atmosphere
The trio is constantly performing around the world, including visits to large, influential festivals such as Primavera Sound, All Tomorrow’s Parties, Levitation, Roskilde, Best Kept Secret, Austin Psych Fest and more
The band has three albums in the praised US label Sacred Bones Records, with raving reviews. Their last LP – III – in collaboration Atom TM and Jason Spacemen (for London Sessions) has been described by Drowned in Sound magazine as “so right, so perfect… that it feels like the band have been playing not just with your ears and heart, but with your very soul”
Life Was All Silence (Hong Kong)
When sound and space become intertwined, Life Was All Silence (LWAS) decants emotions into weightless state, with fusion of traditional guitar motion, instruments and synthesizer tones. They make cutting edge analog sound infused with unerringly charming improvising music, expanding the sound space with intensified, fragile, explosive and brittle sweet tunes.
2010 fall, founding member LEAF (Bass) and TRAVIS (Percussion) attempted to improvise music, FRANK (Keyboard & Synthesizer) and JAY (Guitar and Synthesizer) joined to form the early stage of LWAS. The band is emerged with stories of the band members, and blooming vigourously with their high energy and unique sound.
Prepared for two years, with the help of tfvsjs, LWAS published their debut album “The People” in 2014, which full of humanistic colour, with an expression of views on war, anecdotes, city life, decaying world and future etc.
The band just completed the Tour in 10 China cities, was invited to be supporting act for well-known artists like Maybe She Will, Envy, and festivals like Clockenflap 2015.
