Dr. Octagon - Instrumentalyst
dr. octagon's legacy is largely tied into the surreal work of rapper Kool Keith, one of the alltime great musical weirdos, but the music alone was equally as impressive and badass. obviously others recognized this and another version of the album, "Instrumentalist," which had Keith's contribution removed was released. Dan the Automator was at the helm and showed off his budding genius before moving on to the first Gorillaz album and various other projects. the music was smooth and ominous, druggy and hallucinatory. a satisfyingly bizarre musical experience, for sure. oh, and a classic album cover by Pushead. fuck yes.
