weird albums?

Inspired by this thread (go there if you want to see some weird nominations) in the Genesis forums, do tell:

"Nominate an album you have heard - you would regard as strikingly odd and utterly unusual: strange musically, conceptually or both."

Also, this Wikipedia article is a mix CD crying out to be made, no?

best. icon. ever.

mind if i ask how you found my journal? :) i just realized you are a new reader!

Probably friendsfriends -- when I've refreshed the page for the last four times in two hours and get nothing, I tend to friendsfriends.

Thanks for considering me worth the add! I added you back :) Now you'll be sick of me because I make so many friends-only posts. :)
Aug. 17th, 2006 02:52 pm (UTC)
Nah, that's why I add people -- more to read!

I did notice that we have some differing beliefs (judging from the groups your in) so I'll make you a promise -- I'll agree to disagree on any issues if you do the same. Deal? I'm kind of an...open person.

If I'm thinking of the same thing you're thinking of, I'm pretty sure almost everyone disagrees with me on that so I tend not to bring it up. :) No worries. I am not really into confrontation. I used to do that but I realized it's kind of pointless and hurtful! I like to think I am an open person too, but who knows.

Good! I can say I do respect the heck outta someone who is willing to have strong beliefs but doesn't expect everyone to share them. There's a lot more subjects in the world, anyway.

I love the Heavy Metal Umlaut!

I've heard a couple songs from this:
Tiny Tim/ Current 93 Nurse with Wound album


Also I've heard some songs from this album:

Now that's gothy.

I heard a couple songs from the Amon Duul II Phallus Dei album. They were bizarre.
Aug. 16th, 2006 04:56 pm (UTC)
This is the best thing I have seen all day.
Dude, under "The gratuitous umlaut in other popular literature" (HEE!), they have Bloom County's "Deathtongue"!! Heeheehee!

I am drawing a complete blank on "strikingly odd" albums.

The Mike Patton/John Zorn albums never appealed to me, in a "this is too weird and I don't like it" way. Not that John Zorn was ever a favorite of mine by himself, mind you.

Also, shut up, Radiohead fans. It's "trendy" to bash Radiohead? Are you kidding me? Thom Yorke can't leave the house without getting head from professional rock critics, for heaven's sake.

So odd that people can put a little male or female symbol next to their name on the forum posts.
Aug. 17th, 2006 01:46 am (UTC)
Someone on my friends list is a huge Zorn fan, and I have tried, but I can't quite get there. Ah well.

Re: Radiohead fans. I know right? You can't have this critical darling band and not expect a little backlash or realism to rear its head. I mean, they are good and all, but really.

I hate the male or female symbol thing, but I will note you can also opt to not have it. Still annoying.

Re: Arc
Yeah, that one's a winner.

"Trout Mask Replica" by Captain Beefheart, although I haven't managed to listen to it all the way through.

"I Am Sitting In A Room" by Alvin Lucier.

I hear Edgard Varese has some excellent material done in the genre of music concreté, which went on to inspire Frank Zappa as a young man ( Zappa is another underrated composer ).

Slightly less arty:

"The Transformed Man" by William Shatner is jarring the first time you hear it - conceptually ambitious, but the delivery takes a while to grow on you. It is superior in this respect to the more mundane output of Leonard Nimoy, even outshining the latters "Ballad of Bilbo Baggins" and attending video clip. "Revolver" from the Beatles totally inverted my perceptions about what kind of band they were.

I think I could list dozens and dozens more, particularly if you were allowing spoken word ( "Shut Up, Little Man", for example ), but I think that's enough for now.

I was definitely hoping you would answer! :D

Incidently, the first minute thirty seven of the famous Bilbo Baggins video seems to have surfaced on Youtube.

Also, while digging through youtube bookmarks, I found this charming video of The Smiths appearing on British childrens television show, "Charlies Bus". Notable for the exchange between the little girl and Morrissey on the bus itself.

p.s. I can furnish you with "the Transformed Man" and "I Am Sitting In A Room" if you are interested.
