I recently hear some music a band called SPHYNx and it was some pretty err...intresting stuff, now after a few listens I quite like it.
Now this brings me onto the main subject, what is the most far-out/crazy/mad/wierd/mind-boggoling/any euphemism for crazy band/song you have ever heard.
Im not talking about spaced-out-pink-floyd carzy, im talking about out your mind on acid with a drummer whos pissed off his tits and a deaf triangle player crazy.

I think Brainticket's album Cottonwoodhill is absolutely CrAzY! At first the album seems like a pretty normal although excellent album but then it takes you on this trippy, psychedelic, freaky, hypnotic and  amazingly mindblowing journey!

Check it out!

Probably Squarepusher... mind you I was in a somewhat altered state when I listened to that, and maybe the most altered state I've ever been in listening to music, and I've never heard it sober...

Funny you brought this up, I just listened to Zappa's Lumpy Gravy and nearly went insane! His early, non-fusion stuff is just way too far out for my liking and that album easily proves that point.
Can you tell me where my country lies...

anyone who's ever hear Ummagumma:

"Several Small Speciest of Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict"

the name is just as screwed up as the song.

Downloaded the song here by the Mars Volta (Eriatarka) to check out what they are like.  The first two runs through the chorus are INSANE!  A transcriber's nightmare.  Sounds like the vocalist is singing in 4/4, but damned if I know what the music is doing.  I do like the song though, very different....

Velvet Underground's Murder Mystery is one that stands out ...
"Death to Utopia! Death to faith! Death to love! Death to hope?" thunders the 20th century. "Surrender, you pathetic dreamer.”

"No" replies the unhumbled optimist "You are only the present."

Some early works of FRANK ZAPPA, and AMON DÜÜL II's "Phallus Dei" has some very insane and good parts in it.

I always start to laugh out loud, when there's some unsuspected bellowings and shrieks in music. F.ex. ZAPPA's "Tengo Na Minchia Tanta" from "Uncle Meat" has a very good aural missile within it.
