“The next day the first thing we do is buy a stereo and a copy of Jimi Hendrix’s Are You Experienced? To be “experienced” – I am at the time certain about what this means – is to understand purple haze, amplified feedback, and the extension of time. From the album cover Hendrix, flanked by two white British musicians, peers back at us wearing a cape, like a magician. ‘”Scuse me while I kiss the sky,” he sings.”
