Giuliano Sorgini – Zoo Folle (1974)
--“Zoo Folle is the soundtrack to a television series that came out in the early 1970′s about zoo animals. What you have are lush arrangements combined with spacey synth chords and tightly knitted drums. He even uses drum machine programming as a backing to play congas over. The song Mad Town has a very grimy feel to it, that is very reminiscent to a hip hop track that would be made today. “Slaves” opens up with a nice drum break that combines flute and strings to deliver the rest of the track. Honestly, I can’t recommend this record enough!” One of those albums that only gets better the more you listen to it.

Nocturnal Breed – Fields of Rot (2007)
--“Holy fucking shit, this maniacal piece of work has destroyed my house, defecated on my car, and torn me a new asshole! Nocturnal Breed play a very fast style of thrash metal with vocals that fall into the more "black" side of things - except Kenneth Svartalv is far better than most black metal vocalists; more on that later - and this is their fourth full length album, and it completely smokes.” The best album by the best blackened thrash band.

Paternoster – Paternoster (1972)
--“Paternoster is a one-shot band from Austria that brought a gloomy type of psychedelic kraut-organ rock that was far ahead of its time. At least so when it comes to the mood and plaintive vocal style. In a way it announces the Weltschmerz of Joy Division, or early Christian Death or other Gothic acts that managed to avoid over-excessive pathos. It's pretty much disconnected from anything from its own era, only the eerie vocals of Ozzy come close.” Amazing album, a prog take on goth from ten years before goth was invented.

Zero Kama – The Secret Eye of L.A.Y.L.A.H. (1984)
--“All instruments to be heard on this album were exclusively made from human bones and skulls by the hand of Zero Kama. They never have been used since the time of its recording, which took place at the Secret Temple of Laylah from 5th to 28th of May 1984 . Remixed at Psychonaut Studio Vienna in November 1987, and dedicated to the symbol of Laylah, meaning night and death, as well as to its numerical equivalent, Oz, a goat or unrestrained sexual force of creation, thus showing the identity of the basic two opposite forces in this generous universe of beauty and strength, in which the Lovers my find ecstasy in Pan. Who wishes to enter this world of darkness, in which the Great Goat dwelleth, may pass through the sigil of Oz given at the front of this Cover.” Dark ambient.
King James Version – First Time We Met (1974)

Jo Squillo Eletrix – Girl Senza Paura (1981)
--“Girl senza paura (“ragazza without fear”): basically a collection of three-chords tracks in the early Ramones fashion, with synth lines and sax intermissions here and there which remind of Métal Urbain, X-Ray Spex, or Bow Wow Wow, celebrating Jo’s shrill, almost unbearable screaming. The music paired with the elementary, repetitive lyrics about (or should i say against) school, family, males, etc. Everything was put in the simplest possible way. The result was naive and rough, yet exciting.” Punky new wave thrills.

--“The Stalin began in 1980 and blew away all previous attempts at Japanese punk rock with their radical, evolving style. The band was founded by Michiro Endo, a 32 year-old socialist activist, Vietnam veteran, and street singer who had spent time in the West. He chose the name because "the name Stalin is very hated by most people in Japan, so it is very good for our image.”” The most notorious masterpiece of Japanese hardcore. Superb stuff.

What binds the work of those artists with Cacciapaglia's intent for this album is a desire to funnel avant-garde influences into a robust future-pop sound.” One of the best new wave albums.

Seesselberg – Synthetik 1 (1973)
--“The duo of Eckart and Wolf-J. Seesselberg, they would tour academic venues demonstrating the art of synthesizers, present seminars and the like (much like the role of Beaver & Krause in the USA), and along the way they developed a creative synthesizer music of their own.” One of the most unusual and excellent krautrock albums if you’re down with far out synthesizer music.

Washington Phillips – What Are They Doing in Heaven Today
--Mississippi Records reissue of my favorite gospel blues musician, recorded in the late 20s and early 30s. Among the most powerful music you’ll ever hear. Not just a classic of its kind, but for all time.
Vampires Sound Incorporation – Psychedelic Dance Party (1969)
--“ Blaring Stax horn sections, wild psychedelic fuzz box guitar, jazzy organ runs, strutting funkadelic drum and bass, and an occasional glockenspiel or sitar for freakout effect. Manfred Hubler and Siegfred Schwab toss this melange of styles into a Cusinart blender and hit the "puree" button.” A spectacular German soundtrack. If you’re impatient, forward the sample song to about 2 minutes and blow your ears off.

I don't know enough about the genre to name specifics. I've listened to some fela kuti stuff and some joni haastrup (which was amazing). Anything you think is good I'd love to hear.

Don Bradshaw Leather – Distance Between Us (1972)
--“It's no wonder that this was brought to my attention by David Late Tibet of Current 93. David sent me a copy and described it as a strange DIY horror symphony beyond words, and it indeed is dificult to describe. There's hardly a thing about this double LP on the web besides want lists and offers for sale (it seems to be averaging around $200 for original vinyl), though rumor has it that Don was a wealthy hippie (some say a member of Barclay-James Harvest, which David refutes) who was squatting around London in the early 1970's, whereabouts unknown now. The four lengthy tracks here ("Distance Between Us" Parts 1 & 2, "Dance of the Goblins", and "Autumn Mist") are dense, swirling, and hellish tapestries of blurred instrumentation, squawking voices buried in the mix, and seemingly no layout of progression from point A to point B in various movements (i.e. it's all a giant progression, but almost like a dog chasing its tail in a mad frenzy). Tracks have the leanings of some epic Messaien pieces in some ways, though imagine Bradshaw-Leather taking his symphony and filtering it through some kind of lo-fi source like a boombox or something and then just went bananas in the post-mix.” Among the strangest and best items on the NWW list.

--Ghananian afrofunk masterpiece, absolute fire from top to bottom. “The record also features Taylor’s take on Afrobeat, ‘Heaven’ being one of the classics of the genre, locked into a tight propulsive rhythm inspired by the work of Nigerian Fela Kuti, whom Taylor studied music alongside in London earlier in the early 1960s. Both were clearly influenced by a wide range of sounds; not just traditional music from their homeland, but also popular styles from America and rhythms from South America - soul, jazz and funk all play a key role in the mix.”

Ritual – Widow (1983)
--“ Ritual's "Widow" is a difficult album to explain at first because there's no band that sounds quite like this, not in 1983 or since. The quick/easy/lazy way to describe them is to associate them with Pagan Altar or perhaps to a lesser extent, Witchfinder General, because "Widow" is very much a NWOBHM/doom album. Along with that are the subjects of witchcraft and other clandestine events, but this could be where the similarities between PA and WG stop. The first thing that needs to be mentioned is how incredibly fucking somber the record feels; it's rare that you'll find a record this cold and unsettling.”

Hasil Adkins – What the Hell Was I Thinking
--“He was born and lived in Boone County, West Virginia and was a self taught one man band. The reason for this was because when he first heard Hank Williams on the radio he didn't know there was a band behind Hank. He thought that Hank Williams played all the instruments. He claimed a repertoire of over 9000 songs including over 7000 original compositions. Recurring themes in Adkins' work include love, heartbreak, hunchin', police, death, decapitation, commodity meat, aliens, and chicken. His life was so unusual that you couldn't begin to start writing about it here.” Classic outsider country-blues. Adkins was run over and killed by a teenager on a tractor in 2005.

--“ An ordained pastor of the American Lutheran Church, Rydgren laid out a heady trip of lysergic spiritual philosophy. Sincere, profound and yet deeply playful, Brother John's mesmeric baritone waxed poetic about the big questions - Love, Sex, Death, War and Drugs (and God's place in all this) - over a backbeat of fuzz guitars, sitars, avant choirs and go-go drums. From 1966 onwards Brother John broadcast his widely syndicated radio show 'Silhouette' across the U.S.A (and Vietnam), speaking directly to the Hippies, Heads and Jesus-Freaks in an engaging flower-power-patter.” Incredibly strange classic. Imagine Ken Nordine, but Christian and more of a beatnik. Hilarious.

--Dope gangsta rap album. The title track was a regional hit, but unfortunately one of the two group members was killed by a convenience store owner in a failed robbery attempt, so they never really blasted off.
Check the stuff I call minimal in this thread, I've posted a few. The Ann Steel album, too.

Breakin’ Thru 4 Delf (1995)
--Great Baltimore rap label promo.
