ISABELLE ADJANI

ISABELLE ADJANI – “PULL MARINE” (1983) Everyone close to me is now thankfully obsessed with Possession, the shamanic and completely unique 1981 horror film about divorce starring Sam Neill and Isabelle Adjani. This is a “holy fucking shit!” kind of … Continue reading

THE LINKS

THE LINKS – “AND AGAIN ONCE AGAIN THE LINKS” (197?) I was just hipped to this one by a good friend a few days ago — and it is one wonderfully ridiculous piece of work that’s been making the blogosphere … Continue reading

“THE DIALECT OF THE BLACK AMERICAN”

“THE DIALECT OF THE BLACK AMERICAN” (1970) Sometimes a resource like WFMU’s Beware of The Blog will pump out so much great content over the years that it’s very difficult to keep up with it all. This album, originally posted … Continue reading

EGISTO MACCHI

EGISTO MACCHI – “BIORITMI” (197?) Unpredictable and considerably spooky Italian library record with pieces named after biological stuff (“Cardiac Valve”, “Peristalsis”, “Microscope”, “Laboratory”, etc.), but sounding like a grab-you-by-the-throat giallo. Not exactly sure what menacing Spaghetti Western-style fuzz guitar and … Continue reading

MORSE CODE

MORSE CODE – “PROCRÉATION” (1976) Don’t know much about this band, outside of them being French-Canadian, but damn, that cover creeps me out. They were a four-piece symphonic prog outfit in the Genesis or King Crimson vein; mellotron licks drape … Continue reading

JOEL FAJERMAN

JOEL FAJERMAN – “AZIMUTS” (1981) An icy-cold excursion into the outer realms of sequencer madness! I’ve always been scared off by the likes of Jean Michel Jarre, Tangerine Dream and the like, but there’s something about this record that is … Continue reading

ANDREA TICH

ANDREA TICH – “MASTURBATI” (1978) Back in 2007, Mutant Sounds listed this one, calling it “Zappa-esque” — and while normally that’s a 100% complete turnoff for this humble record listener, I decided to give it a spin anyway, as the … Continue reading

ES

ES – “WHAM BANG” (1979) This one strongly reminds me of one of Amon Düül II’s greatest achivements: 1978′s “Only Human” (a very controversial opinion, I know — most people list ADII’s early works like “Yeti” or “Phallus Dei” as … Continue reading

NANA LOVE

NANA LOVE – “DISCO DOCUMENTARY FULL OF FUNK” (1978) Strap yourself in — are you sitting down? I was IN LITERAL TEARS as I was biking home earlier this afternoon while listening to this one. Passersby in their autos must’ve … Continue reading
