Disco Volante from the list. But there are tons of others not on the list that I enjoy more.

Nebelnest - Nova Express 
Zamla Mama's Manna
Thinking plague - In This Life
Univers Zero - Uzed
Poil - Brossaklit 
Idiot Flesh - Fancy
SGM - Of Natural History
...and many others

There is no act more pretentious and self-indulgent than labeling another's art as pretentious and self-indulgent.

Tons of stuff I love here, but my avatar went ahead and voted for itself.

On Land and in the Sea, followed by the other Cardiacs albums and Heatwave. There's plenty of more stuff on the list that I like (and the mighty Art Zoyd are missing.)

Many albums I love in the list, and this is one where I'd prefer a multiple choice poll, but I went with Vannier's l'enfant assassin des mouches. I adore that album. I probably would have gone with Unrest had the Vannier not been included.   Agree about Art Zoyd, but then I am a massive Zoyd fan.

bingo.. sort of a vanilla list with WAY too much Zappa on it.

classic Rio-Avant - MŚltid 

Modern Rio-Avant - Book M

Trumpís presidency is basically like global warming. Every week is the worst week on record, and the Republicans are also trying hard to deny it.Ē

Lots of Zappa choices which is fine - not stacking the deck are ?

Western Culture was tempting until I saw Heatwave tucked away at the bottom there. Boogie Nights. Great song.


(Kidding. I know UZ did not do that number....)

No more Zappa albums than Henry Cow and Cardiacs, mind you (four albums each). The Residents on the other hand has the first seven albums. Aksak Maboul and Mr Bungle have two albums each. Nothing wrong with posting various albums by the same acts, though.
