Nestor Pistor (the collection, four, vinyl records from the 1970's). Priceless.

To a certain extent, Kate Bush The Dreaming would have to be one of the weirdest albums in my collection but there are many more I can't think of. Often weird means creative, interesting, just plain different. If you think about it, Beatles Magical Mystery Tour is weird. The whole premise of the movie is random and weird. King of the weird records has to be Lou Reed's Metal Machine music. If you read about it you will know what I mean and Lou went out of way to make sure the label, Arista, would lose money on it since he was so pissed off with the label demands.

I've had a few in my years but I would have to put "Freak Out" by The Mothers of Invention at the top of my "weirdest album" of all time list. Hearing "Tomorrow Never Knows" by the Beatles in August '66 was pretty freakin' strange. No song, and I mean no song ever sounded like that coming over an AM transistor radio that summer ... it was beyond strange.

"Freak Out" was released a little over a month earlier than The Beatles "Revolver" on the jazz label Verve. A couple of months later, a friend at school somehow heard it ... probable through a friend from Cucamonga, Frank's old stompin' ground. He brought it over to my place for a listen.

If any of you out there in CAM-land have heard this album you will have to admit ... that hearing "Help I'm a Rock", "Who Are The Brain Police" or "Return of the Son of The Monster Magnet" was so off the charts weird in '66.... well, I guess ya just had to be there.

My parents said ... "That music will corrupt your mind!".

When I look back on it now I realize the wisdom in my parents words.


"Who are the brain police?"

Well, allow me to retort - Shatner's version of Pulps' Common People with Joe Jackson on blistering vocal chorus is near worth the price of admission. It turns this pop confectionery treat into an all-out assault with Shatner delivering his lines like its bloody Hamlet.[/quote]

This one. We keep it around exclusively for testing Klipsch loudspeakers.

Still makes me laugh, after all these years.

Decades ago I heard this at a friends - was probably 14. We played it many times whenever we partied there. Years passed and after college, I recalled all the good times we had - so searched out a copy. Ordered it new from Records on Wheels. Still have it today. It's funny - but, I'm on the floor when I watch my kids listen to it. They have no clue. :lol:

Without a doubt it would have to be this one....the debut of the Gizmotron, which would inevitably serve the music better on the albums Freeze Frame and Ismism that followed.

I believe this was just used in Part 8 of the new Twin Peaks episodes, the music was the perfect choice, the episode was weird as s**t.

Eraserhead soundtrack

After 27 years my copy of that is still sealed so I don't know how weird it is, but the movie, man, is shuddering.
We used to, um, play (yeah, thats the ticket, PLAY) along with Roger Waters' Music of the Body at college parties. Now that was weird, and lots of laughs, (or maybe that was the.....you know.....).

Music is totally a taste thing. Everybody's impression of weird is different. Sometimes different is weird. I'm a huge David Lindley fan but his LP (something like 1200 copies released in Germany), Mr. Dave, is so awful compare to what he normally does it is horrid and absolutely qualifies for the weirdest. Somebody mentioned California by Mr. Bungle - it probably qualifies for many as weird, but I unconditionally love it. Rates as one of the best albums I have, I guess it scores as weird, but wow, it is epic.
