Animal Collective takeover: Bernard Parmegiani – Pop Eclectic (1968)


I slept on this guy when I was getting into music concrete in the 1990’s. I’ve recently been going back to his records to make up for lost time. I’d like to thank Editions Mego for helping with that. You often hear about psychedelic musicians studying with, or being inspired by electronic composers – Holger Czukay, Phil Lesh, Syd Barrett – but rarely do you see instances where the interest goes the other way. I like this piece for that reason. I recently heard that Parmegiani did a show with the Third Ear Band at the Roundhouse in the late 60’s or early 70’s. I wish I could have seen that one. — Geologist of Animal Collective
