San Francisco Moog: 1968-72 documents a missing link in
the history of electronic music, as well as the little-known
moment when psychedelic music went electronic.
In 1968, Bay Area native Doug McKechnie got hold of
one the very first modular Moog synthesizers ever made and
began finding his own way to play it. Soon, he was hauling
the finicky instrument around to perform improvised concerts
at colleges and ballrooms, as well as an ill-fated appearance
on the bill at Altamont. Many of the performances
were recorded, and the surviving tapes—never before released—
capture a free-flowing, transportive sound that fills
in the gap between the austere mid-century academic avant
garde and the expansive cosmic suites of Tangerine Dream
and the rest of the Berlin School in the ’70s.
This is not another corny old Moog record. San Francisco
Moog sounds as fresh as anything by today’s analogsynth
heads while bringing to life a lost moment in the development
of the music.
“Astonishing stuff, pure early Moog electronics . . . vibrating
with the joy taken in the discovery of the new sounds
this machine was capable of.” —Electronic Sound
“Presages both Tangerine Dream’s soundtracks and, in its
most grimy moments, ‘Acid Tracks.” —The Wire
