I'm suprised no one unironcially reccommended Anvil to cheeseball metal guy at the top of the last page. The quick lowdown is the first four albums are great, with Metal on Metal being their top one, and then they get really up and down after that.

Where is the Surf thread? Name me some Surf bands that are great besides MOAM. My favorite guitar tone is teh surf so I need some inspirationing.

I am bad at sub genres but the first band I though of was The Ventures. May just be 60s pop though I remember listening to their album Run, Don't Walk and thinking it was too much surf.

Is Dick Dale too obvious an option? He essentially invented surf rock. Even if you don't know him you know Miserlou (aka the Pulp Fiction theme)

Now I have need of the assistance of the goon hivemind: what are some good moog and early synthesizer albums? Things I have are:

Plantasia and have already preordered half of the new Mort Garson material coming out,

The recent RSD moog cover album by Denny Martin,

A random Dick Hyman album that kinda sucked actually,

The BBC Radiophonic Workshop Music album which has one of my favorite songs: Zwih Zwih OO-OO-OO,

And I've heard of a classical moog album (with lot of hand drawn wires on the cover ) and seen ones on Ebay that are covers of 60s/70s rock songs and Christmas music as well as one called Happy Moog. Is there anything left flying under the radar?

OHM; it's a great compilation and can certainly lead you down a few different paths. if you want more noise-oriented stuff, there's an ambient/drone/noise thread full of crazy knowledgeable folks.

if the Dick Hyman record you have isn't Moog: The Electric Eclectics, check that one out, and definitely also look into Silver Apples.

V came home to flip through my vinyl and would add that one, plus i really like Morton Subotnick and stuff like Steven Halpern's Spectrum Suite if you want more new age/abstract. also, even if you don't like the Switched On-type stuff, Walter Carlos made a lot of other great music

The Dick Hyman record I have is indeed Electric Eclectics, but I'll give him another shot. Kinda hoping to stay away from noise/abstract as my main gripe with EE is that it sounds like a Moog demo loop. OHM's not the best for me so far but it has reminded me of internet favorite Raymond Scott. I'll have to do a deeper dive into the composers on it.

I am a dumb and forgot I had an obligatory copy of Planets.

And that's another vote for Switched on Bach. Looks like I have my work cut out for me but these suggestions do help point me in the right direction, thanks all.

This compilation from Light In The Attic is a great look at minimal synth stuff from Japan: https://lightintheattic.net/release...music-1980-1990

Itís not early, but for the minimal synth sound, my absolute favorite is Oneohtrix Point Never - Rifts, which is a compilation of some of his early records

If you're into synthy and dancey stuff, check out Cobra Man:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5i6fHlvtL0

They just released this video for their new album coming out soon. Definitely one of my favorite up and coming LA bands.

You are an odd fellow, but I must say... you throw a swell shindig.

I'm getting into performing improvisational live looping with my synths. Anyone have any recommendations for a solo act that is heavy on this that I could look to for inspiration? Genre's not super important as long as it's mostly electronic.

My pal's band released an album today. Not sure what the genre is, but its looped instruments that are complicated yet very pleasing. They put one of their new tracks on youtube: is good.
