Welcome to the world of obscurity.
This is an archive - a museum!
BEYOND THE BEAT GENERATION archives and publishes the entire, long forgotten 'wild' musical gems out of the great years of the sixties (1965-1969) to a bright audience by using today's technology as we call 'Stream Radio'.

We broadcast 24 hours non-stop through the Internet the music formerly known as: Hippie music, Underground, 60's punk, Flower Power, Mod, Free-Form-Freak-out, Garage music, Psychedelia or Teen Beat, the weirdest, the worst, the most powerful and nastiest ever recorded.
During the 60's all teens were obsessed by music, but only a few touched surface, all groups wanted to be, sound like, or look like 'The Beatles', 'The Rolling Stones', 'Pink Floyd', 'The Doors', 'Jefferson Airplane' or 'The Velvet Underground'.
Music was a movement. Music was the expression of a lifestyle. Music was politics, a protest against establishment, wars and society.

  • 67 versions of "Gloria" or 132 versions of "Hey Joe"?
  • Every town had its garageband or psychedelic teenscene.
  • Every highschool had its prepschool band performing those great covers.
  • Bands tried to get gigs so they needed recordings -- The only opportunity was a 45 RPM single.
  • Those 45's were meant to be send out to DJ's at radio stations and jukebox distributors, and to clubs for eventual gigs.
  • The highest recording-standards were 8 track.
  • Most of the ones presented here were homemade-2-track-mono.
  • The best pop songs were written in the 60's.
  • One of a kind type vocals in 60's recordings, then the average age of most groups was between 14 and 19.
  • Uncensored tracks often banned back then.
