Wolfmother – Dimension (album: Wolfmother 2006)

This song is by the Aussie band Wolfmother. The 2000 band that brings back the good old 1970’s Rock! I personally didn’t think today’s bands could create the same old sounds, that’s unbelievable! The band has been a little bit unstable since the bass guitar player and the drummer have left the band in 2008 however Andrew Stockdale the lead singer recruited new members to the band and released a new album in 2009. He has quite a unique voice so you can recognize him from miles. I assume that when they wrote this song they were referring to the time travelling experience through the sounds that they create...
When my friends and I discovered the good old 70’s music, we fell in love with the era. We started wearing bell bottom pants, cool 70’s necklaces, 70’s vests, flat brown leather shoes. There were markets and festivals that used to sell all kind of hippie style clothes and jewellery and since we were daredevil’s teenagers we used to shoplift from time to time. The adrenaline rush that comes from stealing was quite amazing. Of course we didn’t do it all the time, sometimes we spent money on things. I guess we did it because we really just wanted to have fun and we weren’t scared of anything or anyone. I miss the way we were 20 years ago...I have no idea what happened to that crazy child that was once part of me. Check out this wonderful song...

What’s this song about?
Here are nice comments from Songfacts:
“In this song, Andrew Stockdale sings about being transported to “Another Dimension” meaning travel through time.”
“This song contains a few references to Jimi Hendrix. The Lyrics “Purple Haze was in the sky. See the angel’s wicked eye. All these things we must try. Until we see the reasons why,” are all taken from lyrical quotes of different Hendrix work.
