Yes Deltron 3030 is also a classic album. I'm a sucker for a hip hop concept album. Deltron 3030 also uses the same formula from Dr. Octagon: Indie MC + Turntablist + Scifi Theme + Dan the Automator = Classic.

un-fucking-wound!

went to see a friend's band play, and they were supporting unwound upstairs in a tiny pub with about 35 people there. i had no idea who unwound were at the time, and it was one of the most mesmerising 45 minute periods of my life. intense and hypnotic in equal measure.

Oh... you want "hipster"?

1920s... Dude invented his own instrument... and ummm... He was Born Again Folk Rock, before it were cool in the late 70s for 10 minutes.

He didn't even need to create more than 18 songs before he dropped the mic.

How about Zero Kama? They released exactly ONE record, only released on CD ONE time (that I know of) that used to fetch $200-$300 on ebay...

They (I think it's actually just a "he") did sort of occult ambient/industrial not unlike something along the lines of early Current 93 or Coil...the record is REALLY spooky, mostly drumming, some gamelon-like stuff,and occasional flute. I fell asleep listening to it on headphones once and I had the WORST nightmare I've ever had in my entire life.

Oh. And in the liner notes there is also this disclaimer:

All instruments to be heard on this album were exclusively made from human bones and skulls by the hand of Zero Kama.

Youtubed it. Thanks for the Eyes Wide Shut flashbacks....

"First published on the Nekrophile Rekords cassette compilation The Archangels of Sex Rule the Destruction of the Regime."



lmao

Speaking of weird instruments... These guys play on trash... literally. I think their fans invented "worm pitting" I can't be sure. Basically a mosh pit where everyone just flops on the ground like fish running into each other. I never participated.

Wice, have you tried Tod A's other band, Firewater? I'm a big fan:



Metalface, I'm fond of MFDoom and I love that album from Atmosphere. How do you like Dr.Octagon as Kool Keith?:



El Ray is a great surf rock band from Sweden:



People remember just that one song by Was (Not Was), but they had all kinds of music, in a variety of genres:



And I also enjoyed their spinoff act, The Boneshakers:

Tonio K.

Nobody seems to know this guy even though he did the smartest hippest post-punk around before anybody did post-punk. I can't say enough about his first two albums. After that it gets a bit commercial, but REALLY check this out:

@Shellhead: Do you mean how do I like Kool Keith as Kool Keith? I know all about Kool Keith. His original group Ultramagnetic MCs dropped some classic albums, Critical Beatdown in '88 being the major classic. Keith's solo work never really hit the same level as Dr. Octagon. The Sex Style EP is really good and Dr. Dooom was an interesting follow-up to Dr. Octagon. Apparently Dan the Automator and Kool Keith had a falling out due to some royalties and licensing or something. So on Dr. Dooom Keith's Dr. Dooom "kills" Dr. Octagon. "Dr. Dooom" had a much different style, much more akin to Grave Diggaz and other horrorcore rap acts. The Black Elvis album was just OK, apparently Black Elvis was Dr. Dooom's extraterrestrial twin or something, but the production work just wasn't on the same level as Dr. Octagon's acid trip tracks.

After that Kool Keith released a couple of albums as himself "Matthew" and "Spankmaster" which were really pretty bad. He did do "Masters of Illusion" with Motion Man and Kutmaster Kurt which I enjoyed a lot. Oh, one obscure Kool Keith LP that was really awesome was the Cenobites EP. Kool Keith, Godfather Don, Bobbito (from the legendary Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito radio show).
