But since you're pulling me back in - someone needs to tell G the Beatles weren't the first UK band to release a psychedelic song.
Matt I do know my UK psych, but go ahead I'm all ears.

They never did anything original, didn't reinvent the wheel, didn't change rock music, weren't important to rock music, everyone who came after and before them were better and more influential, didn't influence any rock musicians, didn't have three top flight song writers and basically are unimportant to rock and roll.

Yes I do know it Matt. I don't need a wiki page. Actually I thought you were going to come up with 'See My Friend'.
It's a matter of debate how psychedelic 'Shapes of Thing' is -it's relatively conventional in many ways. There were many quasi- psychedelic things utilising drone or distortions from around 66 onwards (see stuff that now gets categorised as freakbeat), but they don't create the full on psychedelic sound picture in the way The Beatles did on something like 'Tomorrow Never Knows'.
