Crawling Chaos, The Gas Chair
2003 | Label: Anthony Chester / The Orchard

Far and away the strangest act in the Factory stable, Crawling Chaos were immediately and unanimously savaged by the UK press. But decades later, they've become something of an astonishing cipher. "Sex Machine," their lone Factory single, is arguably the most un-sexy song ever committed to tape.

Strange indeed, but full of discordant wonders, delicious parody (Creamo Coyl), oddly moving gems (Harry) and satisfying psychedelia. Like toast and marmite, this will only grow in the hearts of acolytes.

Toooo Strange

I read here on e-music, that this band was originaly signed to Factor Record's. They were to strange for the Brit's, and apparently even for Factory. Well I felt that any band considered to strange for Factory Record's was worth a listen. Yes it is strange, but I like it. If you like The Residents, Captain Beefheart, etc, this might be up your alley
