I thought Frank Zappa's Lumpy Gravy was a very strange album. When I first heard it I thought Tangerine Dream's Phaedra was pretty weird but apparently they have weirder ones. Also, believe it or not I thought the vvery first Genesis album From Genesis To Revelation  was rather weird when I first heard it. Side two of Pink Floyd's Ummagumma is another one. I'll have to think about it and list some others later.

Current 93 - Nature Unveiled (1984) - a very disturbing, nightmarish album that I never want to hear again. It's the kind of unsettling album you'd play to clear the house of unwanted party guests at the end of a long evening. Evil Smile

Which of course features two of the members of Henry Cow, the wonderful Lindsay Cooper & Georgie Born.


Speaking of Henry Cow, all their albums qualify but what's even weirder is Chris Cutler's CASSIBER.

This debut album is quite out there

Indeed. I've concluded that The Residents is the weirdest band ever. They pretty much nailed the weird vibe on every level. Can you imagine playing live in these freaking giant eyeball costumes? LOL

Here's another couple RYM lists you may find interesting.

The artists presented on this list are weird but mainly for image not necessarily music but there is some of that too.

v.e.r.y...W#E-I~R*D...b+a=n^d-s \m/ o_o \m/


2nD~C=O=M=i=N=G  v.e.r.y...W#E-I~R*D...b+a=n^d-s...2\m/ o_o \m/


The second one won't link for whatever reason

Weird but brilliant: the first time I heard Factor Burzaco.
Weird and a waste of my time: that's how I've always felt about Trout Mask Replica.

What I used to think of weird, seems more normal to my ears these days. 

Anyway, I offer something new in this territory (released this year) that I really enjoyed: Fred Frith and Ikue Mori - A Mountain Doesn't Know It's Tall

Alas, no tracks on YouTube, but if you have access to Spotify...

I normally don't toot my own horn, but I have my own little project that occasionally dives into this territory. I offer you A Thousand Civilities:

I think I was 15 or so and I didn't get it at all, but these days I do. (My grandfather was big into classical music and after finding out that I got into rock that was more progressive than what he'd pick up on the radio, and failing to get enthusiasm rather than just respect out of me for Bach and Mozart, he thought he could try Stockhausen Big smile - in the next attempt he scored a proper success with Stravinsky and Bartok.)

Hi,

I think that this is the same for me, and the main difference. I was already a well versed 18 year old on classical music and had already heard Stockhausen, Heinemann (sp.), and seen some of it on the TV in a couple of movies to the point where it did not seem strange or weird. Heck, for that matter some Bernard Herrmann soundtracks were a bit weirder (the Sci-Fi ones) than the average music, mostly because of his odd selection of instruments and their use!!!! A very different kind of "weird" if we use the term correctly.

My take, still is, and I say it all the time, that the bigger issue for folks here on PA, is their lack of ability to listen and appreciate classical music and see its experimental periods ... all they are talking about is the 5 albums that did not sound like the ones they like, which makes it NOT A MUSIC STORY OR THREAD!

I might have thought this or that was weird, but already I was into theater and film, and pop music (specially) was to me sort of like High School Theater ... compared to the better stuff one level up, College, and then another level up, Professional!

It's just scary to have folks that do not listen to music regularly, create these things ... it is down right sad, and to me, most of those folks are not PROGRESSIVE MUSIC listeners whatsoever.

Hi,

His reading of many books and stories are really fine and worth having! Only thing missing is Peter Cushing doing the singing!!!

There is a topic here that you may like to peruse if you've got nothing better to do.

Lou Reed's "Metal Machine Music". It's really strange how he firstly cared little enough about any fans he may have amassed to just put out such an obnoxious album, & then be able to create something as competent as "Coney Island Baby" just a year later.
