Did some exploring in Youtubeland and found that:
a) ..some people really seem to enjoy a simple French TOAST;
b) ..even David Lynch can be compared to THIS level of psychedelism;
c) ..VAMPIRES are not only the hiptrend of the last few years.

Also, if someone volunteers & wants to review
Bizarre - 'Café de Flor'
Badass Yuki - 'Black Apple Trip'
one can leave a comment here & I'd be kindly willing to upload or bring my hard-copy.
Why these albums in particular? They both seem positively gnarley and somewhat unusual to an average listener, like Thai food for an Italian.


My mind was racing in class
but still couldn't think of any music (genres, pieces)
I'd normally never listen.

The thing I just remembered: I don't listen to reggae. Ever.
With no disrespect to Bob Marley et al. -
I consider him as a true phenomenon - but it just isn't
something I would put in my playlist,
maybe the riddims just don't cut it for me..

Some of the more entertaining UK chart hits there... Streetband made it to no 18 in 1978 and Laurie Anderson to whopping no 2 in 1981... not what you'd get up there these days I presume! Many think it was Young's greatest moment, at least the funkiest, as he went on to do this amiable but risk free MOR soul pop afterwards... he cut some intriguing lounge surrealism for Duran fans, though:

The first I came across Laurie Anderson must have been around '90 when there was this pop show Vid/Vzgljad in Soviet TV... That also provided my ultimate postmodern experience when the slightly tortoise-like elderly gentlemen who had been reading Soviet news for years suddenly switched to commenting MTV charts! There was also an avant garde slot in the show where a surreal video of "Sharkey's Day" was played; there seems to be just the live version on YouTube:

Talking about David Lynch, I guess his single was mentioned somewhere in the earlier texts, possibly in the Hype Williams interview, with them not quite wanting to have a listen. Prudent?

And, mighty hell, when schlock is in order, vampires can always be trusted:

The late '70s were packed with disco vampire flicks like "Nocturna" and "Rock Me Dracula (Suck Me! Suck Me!)" but the music was rather generic disco... This was more adventurously wonky, also getting recycled in the course of '90s lounge revival for Tarantino's "Jackie Brown" soundtrack:
