As some of you may know, Fantomas have released a new album (for those didn't know, you do now).
Quite frankly, it's a rather stunning piece of work. If you've ever heard the first two Fantomas albums, you'd know their style of music is, for lack of a better word, eccentric and random. The first album was based on comic book frames (each track is called Frame 1, Frame 2, and so on); the second album is horror/cult movie soundtracks; and recently - an album with 1 track spanning over an hour and 17 minutes long.
You'd think it would be boring, but for people with the patience for long albums - it's worth a listen. Quite dark tone to the whole album, seperated into small "songs" over the duration of the album. It ranges from the usual spastic drummer/shrieking moments that are typically Fantomas, to a haunting Gregorian style chant, eerie keyboard pieces, piercing feedback, windtunnels and so on. Creepy album. Couple that with a black jeweled case which has the theme of surgery - the inner sleeves containing pictures of gruesome operations, and a quote on the back "Like the surgeon, the composer slashes open the body of his fellow man, removes his eyes, empties his abdomen of organs, hangs him upon a hook holding up to the light all of the body's palpitating treasures sending a burst of light into it's innermost depths".
And after listening to the album with bowel churning surgeries in mind - it makes sense.

If John Waters, Stanley Kubrick, and Tim Burton all got in a fight I think Waters would beat up Kubrick but mostly because he is already dead and Burton would probably just masturbate watching the whole spooky ordeal. Then a Lobster would have relations with all of them.
