Martin said it was the only time he had ever taken psychedelics
When asked by Holmes if he had ever taken psychedelics, Martin replied, “Only once, on mushrooms.
“I loved it, and that was good… it sort of confirmed my suspicions about the universe. I was like, ‘Okay, yep, that seems to be true.’
“I don’t do so well on drugs and alcohol; it messes with the music,” Martin added. “Some people, it enhances it. For me, it doesn’t.”
Later in the episode, Martin referenced electronic musician Jon Hopkins‘ forthcoming album ‘Music for Psychedelic Therapy’, calling it a reminder “you don’t actually need to take anything to get to that place.”
“I felt like, after I did mushrooms once, that [was] really the confirmation I needed of how I feel about the universe, so I don’t need to do that again… but I think, for other people, it’s just amazing what it does.”
You can listen to the episode below. The segment about psychedelics begins around 76 minutes in.
