Who is Gliftor Draken? A god, a robot, an alien, an imaginary friend? He is all of these and less!
His Greenhead, an organ of pre-cerebral repetition and regurgitation, is the cocoon in which his expanded brain ripens. His T-Stick is the antenna through which the formless energy of his psychedeletions is made manifest.
Backed by earthbound guitarist and sound designer Mark Ellis, Gliftor Draken stumbles purposefully forward toward the Heart of the Psychedelic!

OTHER BAND SITES
New Psychedelic Days(2007)
The usual acoustic/electric/electronic industrial surf fusion thing. With GW Bush samples and pig squeals, of course.
At 23 minutes, it's too short. On the other hand, some may believe it's too long. It isn't what it was supposed to be, but it exists, sort of.
Except for the depressive ramblings of Shellie's husband, who haunts unfinished McMansions in the company of an equally depressed old cat, this album has nothing explicit to say about financial bubbles,peak oil,or the death of the American Paradigm.
Mondo Tea Party(2010)
The soundtrack for a hypothetical movie about the "Tea Party" movement.
The Last Podcast(2011)
It's Not A Traditional America Anymore(2013)
Notes on Political Economy(2014)
The one thing we knew at the beginning of February was that this project would be built around the still-evolving outline of a future political book. What we ended with was mostly free-form solo electric guitar, with miscellaneous swiped spoken words and some of our own - less softsynth stuff than usual, and more of the BBC sound effects library.
No tracks have been uploaded for this album yet.
Electronics, voices from YouTube, electric guitar. No songs. No microphones were used. Stolen voices include Noam Chomsky, Joseph Stiglitz, Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and a few other denizens of the Wasteland.
Modular synth, synth-processed guitar, and Internet video rips, tastelessly combined into an ugly approximation of the emerging alt-alt lifestyle.
