curious to find out what the strangest bit of music people on here listen to...please links or exact names if you could so people can search it out. I know usually when u like it, you don't think it's strange, but when other people hear it, whats an artist that makes them say , "who or what the fuck is that?"

Probably a lot of the noise and droney ambient stuff I listen to i.e. Merzbow, Masonna, MSBR, Bastard Noise, Knull, AMM, James Plotkin etc.

Also remember that some people used to go "what the fuck" when I played them Song X by Pat Metheney/Ornette Coleman

One of the strangest ones I've come across recently is Kindermusik: Improvised Music by Babies! http://www.amorfon.com/HTM/AMO005.HTM

current 93
pretty, wierd and rather haunting neo-folk with totally awesome lyrics (if you like james joyce and mysticism that is)

dead raven choir
the most wierd and interesting band i've come across in the past few years. the head honcho smolken recites in various mental and chemical conditions selected pieces of poetry over folk that goes from super harsh guitar noise with the occasional banjo to uneasening and almost as loud acoustic drones via sparse and quiet cabaret-sort of music. demented, funny and very beautiful at the same time Xyxthumbs

Hahaah, ye Current 93!! Grin First track on this: http://www.discogs.com/release/104001 . It's not scary, it's a bit mental though...

Hmm, weird stuff. Iszoloscope, Richard Devine is a bit weird Lol, DJ Freak's recent stuff (adding some stuff today), La Peste (adding some stuff today), Somatic Responses (Potere Occulto/Xynomorph (hah, guess what?... :P) ), Krylon Hertz, Einleitungszeit, Le Talium has done some weird things. Coil...

When I sober up, I'll remember some others.

Some sonically strange but interesting stuff :

Ami Yoshida - Tiger Trush

It's a solo improvisation for voice, but you wouldn't believe that the noises on this come from a human being, it sounds more like heavily processed insect noises or something...

http://www.japanimprov.com/ayoshida/index.html

Sachiko M & Toshimaru Nakamura - Do

Strangely beautiful improvisations with 'empty sampler' and 'no input mixing board', which basically amounts to feedback and sinewaves, but it's pretty amazing what rich textures these two get from such a minimal setup.

http://erstwhilerecords.com/catalog/013.html

Les Rallizes Desnudes

Japanese 70ies psychedelic rock band, who didn't do anything really special musically, but all their records (all live bootlegs) were so badly recorded that the distortion took on a life of its own, it sounds like MBV 20 years early.
They never released a studio album because it apparently was a bit hard to get a deal after one of their members abducted an airplane to North Korea. Hahaha

German Oak - st

Probably the srangest krautrock album evah.
http://www.headheritage.com/unsung/albumofthemonth/290


Furze - Necromanzee Cogent

Some norwegian dude who manages to sound like Amon Düül I doing black/doom metal

http://metal-archives.com/band.php?id=10020
Lyrical theme(s): War, Freedom, Glory, Honor, Heavy Metal

word, Derek Bailey's dnb LP is bizarre as hell, i remember it sounding really crude, and as if he just stapled his improvs to jungle beats... i love the fact that it actually exists! his solo stuff is pretty out there.

as for Blixa Bargeld... just really odd and grating sounds, crazy high-pitched squeals for entire tracks, etc. - another one of those "rather absurd that it exists" things.
