When the PT boat arrives at night to the Do Long Bridge in Apocalypse Now, we gradually hear psychedelic guitar music being played from a tape player.

It gets loudest then stops when Roach shuts the tape player off before firing a grenade at a screaming enemy.

Does anyone know if this is recorded and catalogued music? Who's playing?

Here is the link to the scene.
