In a recent post, allusion was made to a “prog-disco” track by Todd Rundgren. It’s called “Initiation”; I think it’s excellent, but I can practically guarantee that you’d hate it, so it won’t be making an appearance on TTOTDOWOHOHCBATCI.
It did get me thinking; what’s the most ghastly musical genre-fusion possible? “Prog-disco” takes some topping, although “jazz-funk” also conjures images of wannabe muso blokes in earnest concentration wiggling their thumb pretending to play along with the slap-bass rhythms of Mark King. And how about “thrash-classical”? Metallica did a whole album with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, which, to be honest, just gives their songs a cheesy ’70s soundtrack timbre.
JonR - as our resident expert in dance in all its forms, do you have any suggestions; eg is there such a thing as Ambient Jungle? Likewise indie-king Liam / Prof - Shoegaze Psychobilly, maybe? And Zee, there has to be at least one more jazz-based monstrosity out there, doesn’t there? Suggestions welcome, and it’s going to a poll.
