This is a fucking weird Cratery. Even by our standards. And we like some weird shit. French Prog. Polish Jazz. Cuban Funk. And a banger from a Dirty Harry flick. These are the makings of Cratery 35. No shortage of off-kilter selections here. Before King Crimson was getting sample love from Kanye, they began their career in a band called Giles, Giles and Fripp. Kaewonder kicks off this month’s podcast with a joint from their “Cheerful Insanity” LP. With a song like “Erudite Eyes”, I’m pretty sure radio play wasn’t high on their agenda. I picked up C&K Vocal’s “Generation” LP in Berlin over the summer. It’s a weird Czech record with jazz-like choir vocals and prog overtones recorded in broken English. “Dockyards” is a banger that takes an unexpectedly jazzy turn half way through. DJ Serious ups the weird quotient with Absolute Elsewhere. “Future Past” is part of a musical interpretation of author Erich Von Daniken’s book “In search of the ancient gods”. None of this making any sense? Not sure it does to us either. Cratery 35. Weird.
