    Godspeed You! Black Emperor and the like suddenly does not seem innovative anymore. holy shit, this is amazing stuff. Are there more albums/bands from this era that sound like this?

    Nope. It gets lumped into Krautrock sometimes, which came a little after it.

    Edit: They did become International Harvester right after this, but I have not given them a listen yet. I also know a couple of these songs got shortened about 24 minutes and became International Harvester songs (Sov Gott Rose-Marie is actually the name of one of their albums, for example).

    I'm seriously considering buying the vinyl box set. I was considering it when Jared first posted that it was being pressed, but after re-listening, I feel like I need it again.

    I'm so tempted to buy that. I'll wait until after ATP to do so though. I was just on fusetron and seeing it listed caught my eye, but it was sold out. Just listened for the first time last night.

    Immensely enjoyed it, but as was mentioned... it makes me question the current music I listen to. So ahead of it's time, when was the last time something really new was done? My listening is dominated by current music... I think I need to stop that.

    I don't think you should look at it this way. There are so few records like this out there... There are so few things you can even compare this to.

    That said, I'd throw The Shadow Ring in this category though. Their work really predates the electro acoustic improv stuff that has been extraordinary the last few years, but also infuses it with really forward thinking outsider pop... Nothing since has even come close to touching it.

    I've been anxiously waiting for the past two days to listen to this Parson Sound album, I knew I had to wait until I got home to listen to it through my good speakers. Man...only on the third track and already I just want to listen to it over and over.

    This board has turned me on to so many amazing different types of music, I'm always endlessly grateful but it's to the point now where I feel like I've either been exposed to or at least am aware of most of the really good stuff out there. But this album alone proves that there is always more out there if you keep digging...

    Jan Dukes de Grey - Mice and Rats in the Loft

    From Last.fm
    Jan Dukes De Grey was a progressive-folk band, and only released two albums in their short life span. Jan Dukes De Grey formed in 1969 and were one of the very last prog rock bands to be signed to Decca’s prog label. They originally started out as just a duo and were rivals to glam-rock band T Rex.

    Their first album, “Sorcerers” was a typical acid folk album, not particularly adventurous but showcased Derek Noy’s and Michael Bairstow’s multi-instrumental talents. The album made little impact and is only available through bootleg. But their greatest work was to come, with the addition of drummer Denis Conlan they recorded their masterpiece “Mice And Rats In The Loft” in 1971. Consisting of three lengthy, psych drenched tracks, It was a lot more free form than their last and had much more progressive leaning, with use of a large assortment of instruments, even utilizing an orchestra. Sadly the album made little impact, and Jan Dukes De Grey disbanded after its release.
    It has been grouped.

    This is something that I've been trying to figure out. Jan Dukes de Grey are an Prog-Acid-Folk group from the late 60's. They weren't a band the critics necessarily went crazy for, but a group that other musicians who came later on would behold. And herein lies my confusion...

    Why would the nihilistic and postpunk artists of the late 70's (Nurse with Wound, Mission of Burma, Public Image ltd., etc.) point to this album as a credible source of inspiration. I mean I would have guessed collectives like that would hate it for how bloated this thing is (three songs, 40 minutes). I know punks have always had a mighty strong fetish for Tim Buckley, with all of his aural exploration and whatnot, but I find this to be very Tull. I like the album, but I find it to be kind of an odd duck in how it has been perceived.

    Listening to the Jan Dukes de Grey album now. What happened to the Jandek album? Wasn't that going to be the second one? Oh, and this thread should always be on the first page.

    Jandek is 3rd on the OP.

    I wasn't sure what was going on with this, so last night after I listened to Mice and Rats In The Loft, I ended up listening to Jandek as well. Couldn't help myself.

Maybe this is a "walk around in the darkness of a cool Fall night with this on headphones" album. I'll try that and get back to you.

    Just trying to try something different, as car/home stereo/desk/BGM listens haven't yielded any results other than "huh?". I'm a setting listener, I like to try different atmospheres while giving new stuff a shot.

    But I'll take the bait... what kind of album is it for you?

    I had no problem getting into the album, but then again I've got a pretty strong familiarity with '70s prog/psych stuff.

    It just doesn't seem like it would compliment a night walk with headphones the way something electronic or ambient might.

    Downloading now. Eager.

    EDIT: Really enjoying the album so far, it's like Barleycorn-era Traffic and Arthur Lee spawned a freaky acid-child on a remote British hillside. As for setting, I'm laid out with headphones, looking out on a misty morning and it's great.

    Finally listening to the Parson Sound album. Reminds me of the German Oak record. Check that one out if you're digging this.

    Jandek - On the Way

    Jandek is a musician, presumably from Houston, Texas. Since 1978, he has self-released 66 albums of unusual, often emotionally dissolute folk and blues songs without ever granting a real interview or providing any biographical information.

    Jandek plays a very strange and frequently atonal form of folk and blues music, often using an open and unconventional chord structure. Jandek’s music is unique, but his lyrics closely mirror the country blues and folk traditions of Eastern Texas.

    Barely a handful of people claim to have contacted Jandek, whose steadfastness in anonymity is legendary. Without any conventional attempts at promotion, he releases albums through his own record label Corwood Industries, which is addressed at a Houston post office box. Fans can write to Corwood for a typewritten catalogue and order Jandek’s albums, usually at inexpensive prices. Jandek’s work has been available on vinyl and on compact discs. Many of his albums feature pictures of the same young man (seen above) at various ages; in light of Jandek’s live performances it is almost entirely certain that the person featured on the album covers is Jandek himself.
