Outsider music + Manifesto

Here I solemnly present you one of the finest examples of proto-psychobillie/rocabilly or however-you-may-call-it music. 

This music is simply awesome; as it is described on Amazon review: "Outsider musicians can be the product of damaged DNA, alien abduction, drug fry, demonic possession, or simply sheer obliviousness."


Wesley Willis-Rock'n' Roll McDonalds

Into Outer Space With Lucia Pamela
CD Arf! Arf! Records

One publisher and a reviewer puts it like this: "Sincerity and lack of self-awareness rarely earn musicians platinum status or a spot on MTV. Thankfully, for every manufactured boy band and lip-synching pin-up there are 10 "outsiders"--the earnest, often psychotic and not necessarily ingenious stars..."
(Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc.)

These and many more songs are part of an album Songs in the Key of Z: The Curious Universe of Outsider Music. You can buy the book with CD here!

In the end I want to publish Roman's Manifesto:

"I refuse to follow the guidlines of conventional slick design and correct spelling. I will do everything I can so my blog does not become a part of one of these "lip-synching pin-ups". Following examples of the above geniuses (and true musicians), I will try to incorporate bad design, awful sound and video quality and misleading judgement, presented as philosophy with critical thinking, in my blog.

That is where true sincerity lies."

North Korean Megamix

Here you can listen to some excerpts from the last year's Servataguse Muusika festival organized in Tallinn, Estonia. Mostly for fans of untraditional music... This year's festival will be held in Tallinn again, on 4,5,6 November 2011. So if anyone is interested in unusual music of the Northern Europe, this is the place for you!

And for the fans of Sublime Frequencies, possibly one of the best record labels I am aware of, Motherland Megamix - Radio Pyongyang:

Ça Fait Zizir Festival, Lyon France

Never mind the quality of these videos, as well my hands were shaking like always...

It was the first day of a three-day Ça Fait Zizir Festival in Lyon. Some good French performance with gypsy influences... Or not gypsy? Does anyone know if ska punk has to do anything with gypsy music? I know that use of trumpets in music does not necessarily signify it is gypsy music, but still...?

A very angry-looking lead singer.

The crowd.
