One of the weirdest bands I've heard within the last year.

Jack Parrow is fun! Thanks! I've been searching for something new and weird to listen to.

Have you seen any of the Femme en Fourrure videos? The music is minimalist electronica, but the videos are freakin weird.

Hi Ochi. You recommended Billy Childish to me a few years ago. I find a documentary about him on the old GreyLodge website a few days later and I've been a fan ever since. Thanks for that.

Thanks for recommending Femme en Fourrure too. When you said minimalist electronica and weird, my mind went straight to Clock DVA, 23 Skidoo, Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle and that era of electronic weirdness. Those songs weren't exactly my kind of music but the videos were enthralling. Thanks again.

I assume you've heard of The Residents but I thought I'd mention them on the subject of weird. Going strong 40 years now and still one of my favorite live acts to catch. Laurie Anderson and R. Stevie Moore are other veterans that never cease to amaze me.

I also assume that you've seen Big Bad Wolf by Duck Sauce. It's been around for a while. I'll link it in case it somehow slipped under your radar.

On the subject of old electronic music. Thomas Dolby (she blinded me with science!) is making a documentary about a lighthouse in England and it looks really good.

I love the 'live' documentary thing that has evolved over the last years. I haven't had the fortune of seeing one yet but I narrowly missed the chance to see Yo La Tengo perform a live soundtrack to an Italian wildlife documentary (I think) a few years ago. I've never taken the time to listen to Yo La Tengo but I'm sure I would have liked the performance. I read that they're doing some work with my personal hero Joe Davis and the audio microscope that he invented.

I can't think of anything else delightfully weird and out-of-the-way that you might enjoy except for this band called Ononos. They're kind of odd. I don't know much about them.

And then there's this Witch House stuff I heard about a few years ago but haven't really looked into yet.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bHL-QL525-M

Weird.

You are a vault of eclectic musical knowledge, PoA! Duck Sauce blew my mind. Ononos was weird as hell, yet inspiring. I got a keyboard, a drum and a voice... why aren't I using it? Can't be much weirder than that, can it? Witch House was a bit too trance for me... minimalist trance? The videos were weird, for sure, but slowwww.

My saint band is the Melvins. But my musical tastes in the last 20 years have splintered to all edges of obscurity. I hold no allegiance to any one genre.

Obscurity is such a great word. The definition is even better.

You must be familiar with The Residents then. They invented The Theory of Obscurity. Actually, the mysterious N Seneda did but he is obscurity itself. They're somewhat monumental in the history of electronic music because they were among the first to buy and use an EM-U Emulator (the first commercially available sampler). Their Emulator was #00005. I think one of George Lucas' company bought numbers 1 - 4. The Residents' The Tunes of Two Cities used the EM-U almost exclusively.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vX4ykn1a-y8

In 2008 they dusted off all their old wonky electronics and used them to record the soundtrack for a series of YouTube videos called The Bunny Boy. This was eventually released as an album called Postcards From Patmos.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDEXTmYJKX8&list=PLA02256BE28F183E7

Jean Michel Jarre did something similar for the thirtieth anniversary of his seminal electronic album, Oxygene.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVY_17d1KkM

Raymond Scott (who I mentioned in another thread) is another important figure in electronic music. He invented tons of strange electronic instruments and Bob Moog worked for him before making his famous Moog Synthesizer. Mister Scott's Soothing Sounds for Baby albums were years ahead of Brian Eno.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l17kn0WpD2s

Of course there's Leon Theremin and his unforgettable contribution to the world of music.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5qf9O6c20o

Leon Theremin's friend, Edgar Varese is sometimes called the grandfather of electronic music.

One might argue that mechanical music is the predecessor to electronic music. Conlon Nancarrow's studies for player piano were hacked in the sense that he circumvented the limitations of the standard hole-punches for player piano roles at the time and made musical pieces that no ordinary human could play.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubepzLKAcCo

On the subject of mechanical music there is George Antheil's fantastic Ballet Mecanique.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_bboH9p1Ys

All in all, I really don't know much about electronic music. What I've posted above comprises most of my knowledge in that department. I just like to read books and stuff, y'know? Pictures of Sound: One Thousand Years of Educed Audio is the book that currently holds my interest. It's about sound recording from 980 onward. It talks about recording devices that predate Thomas Edison by a long-shot and it comes with a CD. I haven't read the book yet but if you only follow one link I post here, this should be the one.

http://www.incunabula.org/2013/06/patrick-feaster-pictures-of-sound-one-thousand-years-of-educed-audio-980-1980-cd-2012/

I'm a fan of the Melvins as well. I'm not anywhere close to caught up on their discography but I just love those guys. I've missed two chances at seeing them and I'm still kicking myself.

I really hope Negativland takes this freak show on the road sometime.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=KN1z58l88dU&NR=1

It has been an honor to share my limited knowledge of music with you. Even if you do not follow the links or read what I've written, I feel special for having this in the public. Thank you. Take care of yourself and be kind to others.

P.S.

You don't need any of those things to make music. You just need sufficient imagination. With that all things are possible.

Regards,

PoA

Just stumbled into P.H.Fat thanks to the Jack Parrow song. The lyrics are slick and the electro is hardcore.
