ITT: Bands with at least one member who was legitimately batshit crazy
Pic related, one of these motherfuckers was in the Japanese Red Army and helped hijack a fucking plane in the 70s.

/mu/, what are some very sad albums?
Please, PLEASE, no emo, no edgy stuff, no overposted albums.
Thoughts on Kate Bush? What are your favourite albums and songs?
Kate is my favorite female artist of all time.
Her idiosyncratic vocal style is wonderful.
Her work was so innovative and ahead of it's time.
Hounds of Love and The Dreaming are masterpieces.
A lot of her work has deeper meaning to it which is interesting to research.
She has inspired some of my favorite contemporary artists such as Bjork, Julia Holter, Fiona Apple, and Joanna Newsom which is pretty cool.
What are the best hip hop albums that aren't part of the rap subgenre?
Why have sharethreads been dying so much recently. Don't let this one die.
Amebix - Arise!
>post punk, crust metal
I am a fan of ambient/downtempo/electronic music by musicians such as Aphex Twin, Autechre, Plaid, Brian Eno, Photek, Jega, Lustmord etc - but I tend to skip many of the tracks in their albums for being too "noisy" and random, I prefer ambiance and a consistent tune.
Any recommendation tracks or albums for me?
Brian Eno? Noisy? hmmmm
Have you heard Discreet Music by him? The first track is 30 minutes long and is completely mellow the whole way through. Then there are three classical tracks that I never listen to.
The Caretaker - An Empty Bliss Beyond This World
HTRK - Psychic 9-5 Club (probably my AOTY)
I hope this helps!
AOTY 2014 thread. Post yours.
best hip-hop of 2014?
Does anyone else feel like hip-hop has an incredible amount of unexplored potential as a genre? Rappers have the entire canon of poetry to work with, and yet fucking Enter the Wu-Tang Clan - with all its silly ninja shit - is often considered the GOAT hip-hop album. Not to mention all the misogyny, homophobia and materialism that pervades the genre. Gangsta rap is the bane of hip-hop.
Haven't had one in awhile, so let's have a hypnagogic pop thread, /mu/. Favorite releases? Favorite artists? Been revisiting Lamborghini Crystal lately. Dial 747-Creepozoid and Alien Microwave are fucking genius
Can we get a chart thread going on?
How is Weighing Souls With Sands even remotely similar to traditional Post-Rock?
Also there should be a category for "Drone Rock" or "Something that isn't heavy" with Pentastar, TBMHITLS, Feedbacker, etc.
ITT: Good albums to listen to in the background while working on school shit
pic related, one of the two albums I've been listening to
