Psychic Paramount

Psychic Paramount is the name of an American avant-garde psychic rock group. It was formed in New York City by Drew St. Ivany, a guitarist and Ben Armstrong, a bassist.

The duo launched their solo acoustic recordings by St. Ivany. Later on, they also roped in a drummer Tatsuya Nakatani, did a rehearsal for less than a week and left for a European tour. They started with multiple shows in France and Italy in Nov/Dec 2002. They produced a CD Live 2002: The Franco-Italian Tour which was based on the recordings at various cities in course of their tour. They also produced a Super 8 video which was shot by Aran Tharp, a New York filmmaker.

Meanwhile Tatsuya Nakatani left the band and they found a new drummer, Jeff Conaway. They toured the US in 2004 and recorded their first studio album, Gamelan Into the Mink Supernatural, which was released in the fall of 2005. The Gameplan earned rave reviews from the critics.
