How could I have forgotten The Residents?
Nice to find there are people on here with ridiculous taste in music too!
I saw Eugene Chadbourne live a good few times, once in a tiny bar with Jimmy Carl Black from the Mothers of Invention (kind of) playing drums.
As for the Beach Boys - don't know why, but just never really listened to them other than the obvious singles. Where should I start? Spotify I guess!
The best place to start with The Beach Boys is 20 Golden Greats and then immediately jump to the Smile Sessions. Like going from Love Me Do to Tomorrow Never Knows. Similar time span too.
