Re: MOTORPSYCHO's favourite album list!

Some time ago a read an interview with Bent from about 1993, where he stated that he was a fan of Neurosis, because of their energetic and devoted live performances. So I'd like to suggest:

Neurosis - Enemy Of The Sun (1993)

I think their influence is clearly identifiable on Demon Box.

There are probably a lot more great known/unknown albums that belong on this list,
who's next?
Re: MOTORPSYCHO's favourite album list!
February 28, 2009 03:40AM
Since long time I wanted to contribute some of my opinions here, but till now I never found the time to do so...

There is still one of the MOST important bands missing:



1- Van der Graaf Generator (seriously, how could nobody mention them???)

Watch this NRK-P3-interview a year ago [www.nrk.no]
... they listen to several albums, first some kind of Iron Maiden and then "Killer" by VdGG from the album "H to He, Who Am the Only One " from 1970, but their most highly acclaimed album is "Pawn Hearts" from 1971
I think you have to add both albums to the list winking smiley



2- What about Frank Zappa ?

I always wondered what Bent/Snah think about Zappa. They never talked in public about him (am I wrong?) But he's such an important composer of jazzrock and nonsense-music, that I can't image they dont own albums by his bands...
Also, he was one of the first artists releasing an album totally unheralded + under a different name and just time after time more and more people found out it was him. The album I'm talking about is called "Cruising with Ruben & the Jets" (only containing some kind of cheap love songs) and he did something similar later with the album "Francesco Zappa", claiming it was an baroque composer from a different century and he found his notes...
I think the idea of changing style rapidly from record to record and give each project a different name and the idea to record songs several times with totaly different genres/ styles is something, which might have inspired MP with their Tussler album in 1994 when they started to make country-versions out of metal-songs... What do you think?

But the album, I would suppose on this list is Frank Zappa - Hot Rats (1969),
an album ahead of its time with awesome fusion/ jazzrock and a legendary diversity of sounds/ instruments I would say.



3- What about the french band Magma then?

I know, it's kind of hard to listen to them, because they mix progressive-rock with high-pitch-opera-singing and all seems a little bit bizarre on the first listen. But they were the first band (as I know), which was creating their own language "Kobaïan" and created a complex story about all their releases inspired by the bandleader's "vision of humanity's spiritual and ecological future". They also gave a name to their music "Zeuhl" and till today there are at least about 100 bands worldwide creating more songs in "Kobaïan", which is quite fascinating that they have so much "followers". And beside that, they are pretty amazing as musicians, too. Their "breakthrough" and most famous album is called "Mekanik Destruktiw Kommandoh" from 1973, but my favorite is... let me think...
Their first live-album "Magma Live (inofficial name: Hhaï ) from 1975 is a good example of their live-sound in the 70s, maybe you could add that to this list??? and check it out winking smiley

4- Another album by King Crimson "In The Court Of The Crimson King" (1969), because MP covered "21st Century Schizoid Man" as "21st Century Schizoid Girl" on their very first gig and because it's such a classic, with a total different style from their later 70s and 80s stuff like the album above. (But we could also add the album "Red", they covered the song "Starless" several times tongue sticking out smiley



Other things maybe missing:

- Moondog (I dont know him or any album, but he wrote "all is loneliness", also done

- Janis Joplin did a version of it with her first band (Big Brother And The Holding Company), but her album "Pearl" from 1970 is the well known one and I even think her voice has something in common with Bent, I dont know what it is, but if I listen to "Devil Dog" I think they have both this ex-smoker-overtone.

and of course Patrik Fitzgerald, dont know anything by him, but hey, MP contributed on his debut album smiling smiley

...and I would change some of the mentioned albums, but because I dont want to argue about the relevance of some LPs I stop here, but one thing: I think "The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Axis Bold As Love" is his worst album, only the artwork looks great ...
Re: MOTORPSYCHO's favourite album list!
February 28, 2009 09:30AM
Just one minor correction: The track they played on the Lydverket interview is in fact Man-Erg from the Pawn Hearts album.
They also mention VdGG as being "doomsday prog", quite a fitting label IMO.
And yeah, H To He and Pawn Hearts belong on this list.

Also agree with Hot Rats, my personal Zappa-fave.
Re: MOTORPSYCHO's favourite album list!
February 28, 2009 07:06PM
Oh yes, you're right about the VdGG song, but somehow I always think the song is the one titled "killer" because the first sentence "the killer lives inside me, yes I can feel him move"...
Anyway both "man-erg" and "killer" are awesome songs winking smiley
About Zappa, if you like Hot Rats, do you like Wawa-Jawaka and Grand wazoo aswell? because this are records very similar to the style of H.R. ...
and one of my all-time-favorites is the Live-2LP "Roxy & Elsewhere". I think it is one of the best live-records ever done and it includes most of my favorite musicians who worked for Zappa. So, if I knew, MP like Zappa I would suppose to include this album, too ^^
Bye for now, cheers, Nils
