    Nomeansno are fascinating because they got more philosophical later on talking about conformity and shit like that but early on youve got songs like "Dad" which are all about the horrors of toxic masculinity, they work on a level of layers where they could be incredible dark and earnest but cause of the degree of darkness your pushed into comedy springs from it (the album world wasnt built in a day is on is one of their weirder albums, the band wernt big on it but i really like it)

    I mean one of their albums is named after a Heidegger quote

    They were technical and could play well but all in service of the song and especially John Wrights drumming is always doing interesting shit but firmly in pocket

    "Dad" also has maybe the best very last line ive heard on a punk song

    One thing i did forget to bring up that i might aswell do now is that i know some of the Cardiacs lot good people its through them weirdly ive had alot of interactions with musicians who low key are fans of em or friends one of them being 6 time snooker legend Steve Davis who i have met in person is friends on facebook and with my man Kavus (lead guitarist for Knifeworld/Monsoon Basoon) for about a year or two had a radio show called The Interesting Alternative Show that played all manner of weird music on a monday evening thats how i came across that Oxbow track aswell as Tipographica,Tin Huey,Thinking Plague, the first Dollar Brand solo piano album (they had OG Chris Cutler special guest on one episode) and all sorts of stuff

    I think you can find them on mixcloud but wanted to bring this up to add some context and also say yes you lot know somebody who has a direct connection to one of the people who was involved in making Snooker Loopy

    Ill be amazed if anyone is able to get through this and not feel emotionally exhausted by the end of it

    Eugene Robinson is the end result of a particular vocal style where you dont really understand what hes saying but you feel everything he says

    David Yow minus the enema jokes, Mike IX Williams but less scummy

    a tour de force

    This was my favourite experience from the list the most confounding was the van der Graf generator. I cannot get my head around that at all.

    Steve Davis is a collector. First of all he was famous for his soul collection but my guess is he bought every soul record ever made and had to move on to fresh pastures.

    all i can say is good for him i approve of making that kind of weird late in life career move

    100% the vocals I don't understand. Mind you a lot of your pix I can't stomach the vocals. Wyatt, Pere Ubu, beefheart, loads of other ones too. this is a big dividing line between us! Silliness is something I struggle with in music.

    like i said blame Busta thats where it all stems from lol

    i wouldve assumed Lungfish wouldve grabbed you cause theres a zonked out intensity with that one, Spacemen 3 but without all the heroin and 60s worship

    Esther Phillips did a great version of From a whisper to a scream

    see now i dont find Robert Wyatts singing silly at all its more affecting than silly, Kevin Ayers i could see that cause he was always a slacker hippie fuckin off to Morroco when he didnt want to make music (and boning John Cales wife)
