not new music tuesdays

The Decayes - Accidental Musik (1979, Imgrat)

I'll be damned if I can find much more information about this album than what is listed on the insert, which is included with the download. Accidental Music is the second release by the LA based group, whose revolving line-up has resulted in them being termed a "collective." This is a term that seems to get thrown around quite a bit these days if more than five people play in a band, so I don't really read much into that. Their debut, 1978's Ich bin ein Spiegelei, piqued the interest of Steven Stapleton, who included them on his now infamous list. Much like the aforementioned list, this record is all over the fucking place. Influences like Stockhausen, Can, Lard Free, and Tangerine Dream are smashed together and beaten into some strange, dark progressive (I use this term loosely) mess that at times recalls several things, but as a whole reminds me of nothing.
