precisely, my friend.
Boris is great, saw them live once with Earth, they were exceptional
very cool stuff in this thread, I'm enjoying listening to these
Obvious, but one of the first popular tunes to use this concept was maybe The Who/Won't Get Fooled Again. The synth part in the middle is right out of Terry Riley/LaMonte Young.
Cornelius, Stereolab, Lighting Bolt, Tortoise...This thread is checking a bunch of boxes for me. Love all those bands.
I would add:
Gang Of Four
Early Red Stripes and Black Keys
favorites of mine:
the Velvet Underground
On the Radiohead end, Burn the Witch is very Reichian
I'd add a bunch of 80's King Crimson. Quite a few of their 2 guitar songs in that era use phasing and repetition (Frame by Frame, Discipline)
On the pop side, early Coldplay seems like a take on Philip Glass
There are some Wilco tunes in the Krautrock idiom (Spiders, for one)
Almost all hill country blues fits here. Repetitive, hypnotic, lots of drone notes. R.L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough come to mind.
This is very much Ryhs Chatham's area of operations:
80's King Crimson checks a lot of those boxes. Layered, repeating rhythms in different meters, shifting patterns etc.
Also The League of Gentlemen (another Robert Fripp project):
Also later Meshuggah:
Great topic, BTW, a refreshing change!
Love Ufomammut! How about some other "doom" bands that are more like "drone" bands? Bong spring to mind... and Finland's Circle are a "metal" band that often play pure repetition.
oh yeah, also forgetting about that time that philip glass tried to make rock music:
OK, maybe just one more: Poland's Lotto - more of a jazz tip. I would have suggested France's France too but there's no guitar on it - hurdy-gurdy instead - so DISQUALIFIED!
Nice to know that at least one other person in the world knows about that League Of Gentlemen album. It's brilliant.
How about Japanese drum/bass psychopaths Ruins?
There's a synth part in "Won't Get Fooled Again"???
It was a Lowrey spinet organ, although it was routed through a couple of sections of a VCS3.
actually i think most of their catalog would be the exact opposite, hahah.
yeah, not sure if these guys qualify as rock (piano, upright bass, drums, jazz school training, sound more like techno) but they did open for radiohead at madison square garden...
