The Tape-beatles - The Grand Delusion (1993)
This really isn't a psychedelic album but it's hard to find and a really interesting album so I'm going to put it up anyway. The Tape-beatles are a multi-media group from Iowa City that formed in 1986. The Grand Delusion is the only album of theirs I've heard so far. It was created as a reaction to the Persian Gulf War, using voice samples largely derived from speeches (lots of Bush Sr.), television news, and occasionally some crazy religious types. These voice samples are placed into eerie contexts with collages of sampled sounds and music.
