and i want something way the fuck OUT THERE to slap me out of my disenchantment.
already a massive fan of tom waits (all periods included). i understand captain beefheart is one to explore once you dig the waits, what would you say?
i suppose i'm looking for some crazy, fucked up shit from all genres (EXCEPT metal), so feel free to throw me any ideas, no matter how bonkers you think they might be. i'd be especially interested in exploring alternative hip hop (already know and love dalek, clouddead, but would love something in a similar vein. or in a different vein, whatever!), house, jungle, tropicalia, ambient, jazz (especially jazz), spacey, weird chillout stuff, and whatever else you'd like to suggest.
avant garde is the watchword, i suppose, but as long as it's tuneful (or at least good) i don't care.
back to jazz: sun ra, miles davis, john coltrane...i like what i've heard, but you can't just dive in, can you? you have to ease yourself into it. any jazz specialists on DiS?
so yeah, i would be very thankful if you guys could help me out :)
