Rock 'n' Roll is a strange and wondrous place

I always thought that Dread Zeppelin was the oddest rock band out there. I mean, they've got it all. Led Zeppelin tunes done in reggae, and their lead singer is an Elvis impersonator.

Way more cool than "The Charmer", that calypso artist who changed careers and is now better known by his real name: Louis Farrakhan, outspoken head whackjob leader of the Nation of Islam.

But then, along comes Hatebeak. Self described as:

Face-crushing guitars, head-pounding drums, bass so low you'll vacate your bowels, and vocals so scorching, so extreme they simply can't be human! They're not. This death metal outfit with a parrot for a singer trashes the pathetic birdfeeder you call the metal underground!


Songs are available for download.

Thanks to John of Texas' Best Grok for the pointer to The Charmer.
Thanks to Johno of the Ministry for pointing out Hatebeak.

What about Beatallica? Or Luther Wright and the Wrongs?

Glad you liked the link. I wonder how Lileks found out about Farrakhan? If you have a spare 15 minutes, you should listen to that installment of The Diner. Some good stuff.

I have one of Farrakhan's song about a transvestite. That's the beauty of Calypso! Any subject matter can be made into a happy little dance number.
