Arkansas psych nugget featured on Thornton's latest flick

Posted By on Tue, Feb 21, 2012 at 1:06 PM

Psych of the South label honcho and garage rock scholar Harold Ott sent word to the Times that one of the songs featured on Lost Souls Vol. 1 was included in the soundtrack to Billy Bob Thornton's latest film, the Vietnam-era ensemble comedy/family drama "Jayne Mansfield's Car."

The tune is a two-minute nugget of dark, folk-based psych from 1967 titled "LSD." It was recorded for the Zay Dee label by the North Little Rock band The Villagers, who changed their name to Suspension of Belief for the recording, according to Psych of the South.

Thornton's film just debuted at the Berlin International Film Festival, though no U.S. release date has been set so far.

Check out "LSD" below:
