Top 13 (of the Week)

Sure,you know what's cool. But do you know what's really fuckin' FAR OUT? That's where Advanced Demonology comes in. Every week, (K)en and (S)wilson trudge through the murky waters of the pop culture hellscape, dredging up sparkly morsels of wonder. These are the result of our latest foray into the world of the weird, our wildest, wiggest-out picks of the week. Call it our 13 Point Program.

13. Captain Beyond bitchin' live footage! 
A whole set, live from Montreux. Far fuckin' out. (K)

12. Super Ego 
These are my friends down in Brazil who make a most amazing cosmic witches brew of psychedelic free funk.  Like everything musical that comes from Brazil, it's awesome. Cosmic Moods / Mystic Groove is the latest, and I can tell you that the title is apt. Get down!! (S)

11. Camp Meeting Jubilee
From 1916. The first documented use of "rock n' roll" in a song. Pretty spooky, too. 1916 sounds nutty.  (K)

10. Wendell Harrison - Organic Dream
Wendell's organic dream is not the same as say, Whole Foods organic dream.  His dream is infinitely more cosmic and intensely sexual. Involving ginseng, love juice and a green meadow. Sounds like my kinda organic dream. Can you believe this space funk was recorded and released in the profoundly un-spacy year of 1981? It's sounds totally 1972. Speaking of 1972, Wendell Harrison put out a record called: An Evening With The Devil.  It just made this years Christmas list. (S)

9. Infandous
As close to a full-on nervous breakdown as I've ever heard in a "song". Outsider black metal from from the locked ward. (K)

8. Krypts - Unending Degradation
The first full length by Krypts is a never ending juggernaut of constantly interweaving death and doom metal.   For those of you who are hip to that world view but you can't decide if your more into personal individual death or the destruction of the entire planet and maybe even the universe. This record will help you figure it out.  (S)

7. Creepy 1920's Photos of the Boogieman
Ever wonder what was lurking under your great-grandparent's beds? Now you know. Sleep tight. (K)

6. Arrowwood - Beautiful Grave
This is sorta like if those two twins in The Shining that keep showing up asking Danny boy "to come and play with us" teamed up with Fairport Convention in an enchanted forest. Skip right to the title track, you're sold. (S)

5. Warning
Holy fuck, mask-wearing German early 80's death-disco freaks Warning have an actual VIDEO for their crazed "hit" Why Can the Bodies Fly, and it's as insane as you'd imagine. (K)

4. Keshco - The Blood, The Horror
They claim on the bandcamp page that they are influenced by Lalo Schifrin, NASA flight recordings, Elvis Costello, Lord Sutch and Iggy. I don't know but this is the closest thing we have to the Deviants in 2013 or maybe the Holy Modal Rounders. This thing get's more outside with each progressing track.  Is LSD still available on the streets of London? If it is contact Keshco cause they got it. This is real! (S)

3. Turmoil in the Toybox
Pastor Gary Greenwald was infamous for his 80's rants against backmasking and the "satanic" messages in songs as innocuous as Queen's 'Another One Bites the Dust'. He pretty much found satanic panic everywhere, even in kid's toys. This completely fucking bonkers show finds Gary exposing the terrible truth behind everything from He Man figures to Yoda dolls. Spoiler alert: God don't like 'em! (K)

2. Sabbath chopped and Screwed
Ever just drink too much cough syrup and smoke so many blunts that even Black Sabbath sounds too fast for you? I'm not sure who made this and to be honest I didn't bother to look into it. But whoever it is they did a great job, mixing in samples form movies, bong water bubbles and classical music fills. Wildly relaxing. (S)

1. Laibach documentary
The scariest joke band of all time? The world's most militant anti-militants? Tongue-in-cheek fascism? Disco for people forbidden to dance? The death and rebirth of rock n' roll? Yeah, all of that.
