A further discovery by the sickbed algorithm today has been Samuel Andreyev’s YouTube channel.
Andreyev has some brilliant videos and interviews with members of Captain Beefheart’s Magic Band as well as some proper in-depth and almost painfully nerdy analyses of experimental music.
I’m usually not a fan of this kind of musical analysis. It’s interesting, to say the least, but there comes a point where even the most precise scalpel can end up butchering what it’s taken to.
This video below, however, is something else entirely… The haircut, the suit, the choice of subject matter, the intensity of the analysis…
I’m left daydreaming and wondering: What if David Lynch presented the Needle Drop…?
