Wow!  An early name of The Stooges was “The Psychedelic Stooges” and that well fits what you have here.  Take the monster riffs of The Stooges and then trip out like The 13th Floor Elevators or Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd and you’ll end up with Sound of Confusion.  It’s a rather simple formula, but its no less powerful and enthralling for it.  More proof that the 1980s produced plenty of great rock and roll if you were willing to look left of the dial.
