There's a "weird" just about everything else here, so why not "weird" music?
I'll start with this. (Warning, this may be hilarious or offensive, depending on yr. sense of humour...)

Weird music? How about weird reviewing? I wanted to try something completely different with music reviewing - the music review as a piece of fiction.
I wonder if this review makes sense to anyone besides me.

Here is my idiosyncratic, non-technical (weird?) review of all Nine Symphonies of Malcolm Arnold:

do any of you remember those Matt Howarth (I think that's the name) electronic music reviews which used to appear in the form of comic strips in New Pathways?

Yes, I do. New Pathways was a fun magazine. It was a shame that it died.

It was a shame, Scott. It was one of those unique mags where it's hard to point to another quite like it. (BTW--I don't suppose you have a need for a messageboard here?)

Des: I was almost hoping the "Meaning of Des" story was part of the review.
I never read New Pathways, but I've been told the comic reviews were interesting.

We need a New New Pathways. To lure back Ferret and Misha if nothing else. NP ran one of my favorite Brian Aldiss stories as well: The one about the aliens with a passion for Robert Louis Stevenson.

Robert, my review is possibly underpinned by who I am. Thanks for reading it.
BTW, I can't recall 'New Pathways' but it sounds a bit Blavastkian!

I am curious what people think Anthony Curtis sounds like, based on the review. I got feedback from two people, one had a pretty good idea, one didn't.

It almost seems like the plot of 'A Pocket Sea' on these very threads. Erich Zann spliced or spiced with mediaeval lute music. des

Do I need a message board? "Need" is such a strong word. I guess I should have one somewhere someday. But I don't know that there's really a demand for one out there ...

Here's some more weird music. Yat-Kha, a Tuvan rock band, covering Love Will Tear Us Apart, and Orgasmatron.
