    That sounds interesting. I'll check it out.

    I would think the same about a lot of the bands I sometimes listen to that are only 'weird" to mainstream listeners. I could tell you that I like Brian Eno ( and I do ) but to me that isn't "weird". I've continued to raise the bar on "weird" for years and so I'll have to think hard for mine.

    That sounds like a hoot. The sort of thing I would call "truly weird". I have an album of a guy trying to explain how to deal with public mocking of his group's mission, to the faithful. And how to recruit new members etc. His society's mission is to make sure that all animals have their privates covered with diaper-like things, as it otherwise contributes to "indecency". I love getting old educational sound recordings or movies that are so out of date as to sound extremely corny now, if they didn't always strike people that way.

    Other "weird" music I like
    GONG
    Sun Ra
    Mysterious Voices of Bulgaria (weird to a Western ear)
    Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan (same as above)
    Edgar Varese
    Lustmord
    Diamanda Galas
    The Shaggs

    Just to name a few. I love love love love music
    Some good bands here, and most are genuinely weird, but not "obscure" weird.

Well, when your only given three or four sound channels, and 3 or 4 basic sound waves to work with, and you wish to create music that excites and interests you and other people, then it's necessary for you to really push your creativity boundaries, or even break them. Innovation is demanded of the musician.
    I like the idea you just described. "Constraints-based" art. Sometimes it produces great stuff, and sometimes....

    I've been checking out the throat singing a little. Any recommendations ? I don't know "freak folk" that well, but I have a few artists that fit this description. I may be confusing it partly with "psychobilly" though.

    I've got a Stockhausen album that has a lot of vocalists improvising that's pretty cool. Randy Hostetler has inspired me to do a spoken word piece myself. I have an anthology of "drone" works from around the world. There are a few people who can "play balloons" that I'd like to get, and an album that was recorded using the properties ( on purpose ) of a piano that had been abandoned after suffering a lot of water damage.

    I posted some odd music on my "Pontookers" thread.

    I like "Echoes" - one of the best rock songs ever recorded IMHO. But Floyd influenced so many bands over the years, who use elements of their signature "weirdness", that it doesn't seem so weird to me now. ( If you've seen the movie "Pompeii", I actually found and bought that old echo machine they used there. )

    They sound slightly muffled on Youtube, but you can get the idea.

    Moment of Peace

    The Gift

    I have no idea what's considered good or bad taste or "weird" in music, art, etc. That's how oblivious I am to mainstream/popular culture. (Thought: You have to be aware of mainstream culture to a certain degree in order to choose to stay out of it, no?) But I just went to the biggest music store in my city today and tried to look for these albums -- only to find that the store doesn't have them because the only one they did have was "withdrawn". I guess that's a sign of lack of popularity or of wyrdness of this type of music.

    As for me, I couldn't decide whether to post these songs in this thread or in the "share your favourite music" thread.

    Oh my...

    Haddaway, The Bees, Roxette, GŁnther, classic Disney.

    Those are some pretty corny weaknesses of mine, just to name a few.

    I had an album called Electronic Meditation that was too weird to listen to.

    Is Roxette wyrd? I have a weakness for them as well and thought they were pretty popular back in the 80s and 90s. Although, I've always wished their lyrics weren't so -- what's the word? -- crude... or "earthy".
