Here is a collection of some of my favorite musical oddities. The early days of Ralph Records are an obvious influence for this mix, with The Residents, Yello, Renaldo and the Loaf, and Tuxedo Moon. And then there's Crispin Glover, whom we all acknowledge as being a little "out there," and the confusingly familiar squawks of Captain Beefheart. But other tracks like Jan Turkenburg's "In My Spaceship" and Gerry and the Holograms' self-titled song came to me from out of nowhere. I'm not exactly sure how these things find me, but I've always been a fan of the strange, and I made this compilation for the weirdos in all of us. Props to Mr. Paul Wilm for suggesting the Landscape and Strapped tracks for the mix. Thanks to Jamie Naugher for introducing me to "Diana" by Comus and to Greg Lowry for 10cc's "I Wanna Rule the World."
