Have any you want to share?
it's not their only mysterious (if by mysterious we mean lack of name on the cover)
but fuck they were quite annoying when I saw them live, it was pretty clear that they were out of their minds
Taj-Mahal travellers - Live in Tokyo 1977, it's a unofficial boorleg I bought and that, I guess, is pretty rare. I scanned the cover myself because I didn't found any on the net
mysterious albums? here's one for ya
a demo i found online by a band named しゅ~ふるまぁ~じゅ, (shu~furumaa~ju, if my minimal japanese skill serves me correctly), it's five tracks of what was described on the obscure shares blog as "clown-themed visual kei". no information about the band exists that i can find, and the only picture of the band is the ones on the front of the album.
four of the tracks are what sound like skits, featuring a menacing high-pitched clown talking about something to what sounds like a child, or at least a japanese man impersonating a child, over quiet circus music. the one actual song (the only one where the vocals are actually synced in some way with the music) is.. well, listen for yourself.
why ? considerating it was released in 1968 I find it pretty ahead of its time (or at least pretty ahead of the rest of japanese prog)
I would accord you that it is too long for what it has to offer though, I prefer listening to it in two parts like the originak 2xLP it was released on rather than listening to it in one sitting, and I'm rather accustomed to long performances / records
>run some old records through some filters
>add vinyl hiss
>call yourself a 'producer'
>get your four friends together
>have one guy whack some strings on a wooden block with a wooden plank attached
>have another guy bash out random banging sounds on an arrangement of skins stretched over various buckets
>have another guy play the same wooden block as the other guy, but with bigger strings so you can't hear him
>speak with some rhythm and melody like that's even difficult
>call yourself "a band"
I actually agree on this, except I don't find the first half bad, just pretty different from the second, hence the two parts listening
but maybe it was made to be listened in two parts like some soul labels used to do, side A you flirt / side B you fuck
> some soul labels used to do, side A you flirt / side B you fuck
interesting, I didn't know this. I downloaded that album a year ago from a sharethread, I wonder if it was you who uploaded it.
barely qualifies as an album. the Hacketacker didn't even credit the original composer/musicians
>muh "guys this albums represents people with alzheimers bla bla bla"
everything that is wrong with modern art: The Album
I uploaded some funk comps in sharethreads, but this one I don't think, I got it about a month ago
how is this mysterious? it's a great album, but i don't understand how it would be mysterious, considering leyland has revealed quite a lot about how and why it was made and what it means.
i want to hear the album so badly. i spent five years of my childhood in alaska, so it would mean a lot to me, especially since the first track title is a reference to a port town where i used to camp all the time.
i got a shortwave radio so i could listen to numbers stations but all i got was hours of sample material that i used to make an album. also, a really strange guy who talks all hours of the day on the same frequency.
