Huso Fin fits perfectly in the world of post-Industrial music weirdness! Another winner from my friend, Qualo Infinity!
André Boucourechliev was a French composer of Bulgarian origin. He studied under Luciano Berio and Bruno Maderna, and would later be influenced by avant-garde composers like John Cage.
He’s a new name for me. Many thanks to the Wellesz Theatre for continually showcasing the finest in contemporary classical music.
I love the Canterbury Scene sound. The music was intricate, and the lyrics bordered on profound.
Caravan were about the best the genre ever produced.
Perhaps too diverse for their own good, Controlled Bleeding were very comfortable working in everything from harsh noise to nearly danceable beat music which fit in well with the Wax Trax! Records crowd.
This track, however, is the one which left the longest impression for me. It reminds me more of a Gothic take on progressive rock, and it’s a vein I wish the band would have tapped more, because it really caught them at their best.
I’m absolutely thrilled to know that Paul Lemos has soldiered on, but it’s quite a bitter loss knowing that Joe Papa and Chris Moriarty have moved on to their great reward.
A quick ditty from the undisputed master of Finnish tango, Eugen Malmstén.
With the passing of Daevid Allen, I’m monitoring a lot of Gong-related activity. Coming across this piece of weirdness, courtesy of Gilli Smyth, is both amusing and cringe-inducing in a wonderful way.
Special thanks to Dave Read who posted this.
A new release from Stasis Recordings by house artist Louis Haiman. I’m no expert in regards to house music, but this track brought me back to Kraftwerk’s early minimalist catalog, sans vocals. Brilliant material to work with.
Adam Stângă is a trumpeter from Moldova. Something wonderful to tap your feet to.
Zeuhl at its finest, made by Zao, which included Magma alums Yochk’o Seffer (saxophone, clarinet), François Cahen (piano) and Didier Lockwood (violin).
Duke Ellington with his masterpiece album, Money Jungle. Incredible.
