Hendrix writes whooshing, crazily orchestrated hippie rock with spikes of Dylanoid sense-reversal, but what he is, fundamentally, is a bluesman. The blues are his school and his laboratory, the spine of his wildness.
My heart burns with feeling, oh but my mind is cold and reeling Manic depression has captured my soul His childhood was rank with neglect; motherless Seattle winters that turned the infant Hendrix blue with cold. What else can you hold in your hand? Infinity, according to the visionary lineage of which Hendrix is undoubtedly a part.
King and the cosmic blurt of John Coltrane. The intro, those snickering accents flicked from deadened strings, is almost pre-musical—it sounds like something scratching at the Rock And Roll of an eggshell.
Tentative at first, it resolves into a rhythm: aboriginal, radical. Dub from the back of a cave. After three bars the guitar rears up, pluming monstrously with energy; after four Hendrix time-travels, flipping his toggle switch back and forth to create a sound like passing space-freight. Well I stand up next to a mountainhe sings, his voice supremely doubled by his instrument, chop it down with the edge of my hand.
No more passivity, acid overwhelmings; no more hanging in the purple haze, not knowing if you're going up or down. The mind-fragments have formed a new shape. Pick up the pieces and make an island. Noel Redding is rumbling fixatedly; Mitch Mitchell has forsaken his Rock And Roll top-of-the-kit clattering and fluttering for a kickdrum-driven, Bonhamesque downbeat.
