“What’s the most unusual music you’ve ever listened too?”
I’ve been asked this question a few times, so I decided to answer it via my wonderful bloggy blog. Although the bands below would not necessarily be considered as “heavy” or “metal” I would still urge you to take a gander, even if it’s just to satisfy your sick curiosity (remember what happened to the cat?). Here are three of the strangest bands in existence.
Fat Worm Of Error
Beeps, ticks and screwed up guitar sounds, these guys have some serious issues. Their first proper albums were released on one of the leading US weirdo labels: Load Records. Fat Worm Of Error seem to have fallen out of vogue in recent years but they are still one of the most messed up and spazzy sounding bunch of arty-farts around.
The brain child of Brian Chippendale (Lightning Bolt) and Matt Brinkman (Forcefield), two of Rhode Island’s underground music monsters. The band name is a reference to creatures who appear in the Dungeons & Dragons game universe. The music consists of unusual jungle inspired beats and strange sounds created by home made noise boxes and tape players.
Help The Buffalos R Crushin Me
A friend recently posted a link to the free album by HTBRCM on facebook. I downloaded, sat back and decided that I couldn’t take much more. It’s pretty fucked up! In the words of my good friend “like Cassette Boy meats Beefheart meats Morbid Angle meets Gabbamonghem, this is bat-shit mental!”.
