What's the weirdest album you've ever heard? The most agressively out there, trippy shit that would make the biggest experimental music afficionados say "this is bullshit"
Possible answer and a question that I feel doesn't deserve its own thread:
Does anyone else hear blowjob/sucking sounds at the beginning of "Fantasy?"
Anything by Caroliner. It took me multiple tries to actually sit through an album, and even though once you get past how freaky it is it is rather enjoyable, you can't shake that unsettling "an inbred hillbilly is about to rape me" feeling.
It took a few listens until it really clicked.
It's pretty intense they came out of San Francisco, I kind of want to see the various post-hippies and yuppies visiting an "artsy" venue and witness the ridiculous live shit Caroliner usually does.
from the archive :
ヘドロメルヘン - ヘドロメルヘン (Hedoromeruhen s/t)
>noisy, glitchy folk. sounds completely disjointed until you realize that it's pretty much the point
This shit right here.
>Metal Machine Music
I don't even know what's going on.
I'd have to go with Daniel Menche's Beautiful Blood. It creeps me out.
Not necessarily the weirdest ever, but Jandek's music deserves to be talked about in the world of out there music
I guess it's because how haunting his guitar and singing are.
It's no harsh noise but to someone like me who has perfect pitch and grew up on western music it is definitely not what I expected
The Church Universal and Triumphant, Inc. feat. Elizabeth Clare Prophet - Sounds of American Doomsday Cults Vol. 14
>music made by actually insane people, includes a 20+ minute drone a capella track
Sounds like random electronic farts and wails. Reading how they actually make their music it isn't uninteresting though.
Here's the bootleg with Weasel Walter of The Flying Luttenbachers playing improv drums over the whole record.
Weasel Walter - Nonwave #67: Weasel Walter Plays With Elizabeth Clare Prophet - Sounds of American Doomsday Cults Vol 14
Don't think there's a cover for this, it's kvlt as fuck.
Probably the strangest album I've heard in a long time. It's really fucking strange.
The Bull Of Heaven tracks longer than the age of the universe are bullshit, but they're standard length drone tracks being between 20 minutes to an hour are actually pretty good if you enjoy drone.
Why is /mu/ full of plebs, lmao
Give this a listen
I forget the album, but fuck was it weird
It had a black and white cover (I think it had a star on it?) and it was indie rock. I remember it being well received by critics, made in the 2000s I think
FâLX çèrêbRi - Rite 64
>weird ass industrial stuff, impossible to describe, he was like 17 when releasing it too :3
Nah not really, it's basically what they do best. One of the members used to shit on guys for money, another tends to masturbate with a vacuum during live shows and one of them is a homosexual who's into perverse sex acts. The japanese gotta express their repressed curiosities sometime.
There was some noise artist who had this track where he delivered a long detailed monologue about how he managed to gain access to a corpse for sex and proceeded to say something like "the following recording is me having sex with the corpse" and it was full of distorted shuffling, thumping and what sounded like kinda low distant grumbles and reverberating growls or something. I remember someone on /x/ posted it and if by any chance someone knows what I'm talking about, please could you tell me the artist and the name of the track because I cannot for the like of me remember what the hell it was called.
weird in that cool way
not in the extreme edgy way
It's weird at first, but once you delve into noise and that sort of thing more often, it becomes rather accessible. I remember first hearing that album and thinking it was way too much for me though so I get where you're coming from.
> her soft moans
> the soft patting sound of her being pounded
> his softly spoken almost reassuring voice
> her voice quivering
> heavy breathing
I guess the idea is for me to feel voyeuristic about this because fuck it's working and i'm getting a why boner outta this
I showed this to my friend who has no idea about the noise or anything like what this is, as an example (to be fair either of us didn't know what I was getting myself into). Kek's ensued. Honestly, I think it's terrible, but it's fucking hilarious/great that a guy can fuck a vacuum and call it art.
This one. I thought Zach Hill + Joanna Newsom would be the greatest thing, but I can't quite get into it.
Yeah. I just listened to that today and it freaked me out. I was reading up about Gira and how he had an abusive father and can't help but feeling like the humiliation and weird attachment he describes is a freaky overblown metaphor for an abusive father
To each their own, man. The Gerogerigegege were always about a mix of things: they outright mocked radio rock music, they often expressed an interest in extreme sexual taboos as sexuality is often a repressed subject matter in Japan (it's why a lot of Japanoise artists are interested in BDSM and extreme sex) and they usually just fucked about on stage as well. They never called themselves artists or what they did was never expressed as art, but it was meant to be more like recreating the sleaziest sex show you'd ever see because the band were a bunch of dudes who had basically performed at those sorta sex shows.
I guess if you take it in the context of the time and place it has more meaning, but if I booked a show in my town and recreated that video, I would probably end up with an indecency charge and put in the newspapers and news as a loon. Nobody would take me seriously. Thats my problem with things like The Gerogerigegege, it doesn't take much talent if any to do things like that. I just dont understand why people look at them like they are so amazing and great, is it like how people give GG Allin more credit than he actually deserves? I'm going to go with the time, place and context thing, because that seems the most logical, I just don't understand how their work (at least this video) went down in musical history as something of substance.
I think The Flying Luttenbachers need their own post actually, they're fucking crazy
>jazz punk that draws influences from (according to Wikipedia) hardcore punk, black metal, progressive rock, free jazz, no wave, electronic noise, contemporary classical, Balinese gamelan and Noh music.
The last side of this album is the craziest shit I've ever listened to
Lachenmann would be up there too if he wasn't so fascinating:
A lot of Krautrock and Canterbury Prog is the weirdest shit on the planet to me. Faust, Neu!, early Kraftwerk, Art Bears, and The Soft Machine. It's not really 'out-there' in terms of its production, song styles, or performances; but there is just something substantially fucking insane about that kind of music to me, and even though I kind of like it, I've never really been able to approach it and it has always been extremely weird to me.
Faust's first LP and Fourth by Soft Machine are really weird to me. A lot of other people think they aren't weird, and really they aren't, but they just kind of creep me the fuck out.
>but there is just something substantially fucking insane about that kind of music to me
Maybe it's the combination of psychedelic rock and free jazz. I'm not really sure about what you mean.
I fucking love Canterbury, though
I mean, looking at it from a different perspective, it's not really that weird. Even Yes and Captain Beefheart were making weirder music than this, but I guess I just connect with that music better.
Canterbury did put out a lot of good musicians though, hell yea.
Nurse With Wound has some pretty strange stuff.
And Hirsche Nicht Aufs Sofa
Both pretty surreal but very enjoyable.
