The Strange Brew Podcast highlights particular themes in British rock music from the mid 1960s to 1970s. Music giants rub shoulders on an equal footing with obscure or unsigned acts to present a balanced picture of the era.

It is one of the The Daily Telegraph’s podcasts you need to be listening to.

We support the right of artists to earn royalties from their music and hold a PRS Limited Online Exploitation Licence (renewal granted for 2016-17).






The Strange Brew site also features new interviews with Sixties/Seventies artists and new psych stars.

Unfortunately we cannot review all new music received as we primarily focus on podcasts and articles related to British rock and pop from the mid-60s to early 70s.
