180-gram vinyl. Roger Roger (August 5 1911 - June 12 1995) was a French film composer and bandleader. His aliases included Eric Swan and Cecil Leuter, the latter a pseudonym he used for his electronic productions. He was one of the first, along with Pierre Henry and Jean-Jacques Perrey, to experiment with the Moog synth; his Pop Electronique album was released in 1969, five years after Bob Moog put his synth on the market. Musique Idiote is his super-rare experimental Moogy LP with beautiful cover art, a definitive collector's item for fans of Dada, the absurd, or Monthy Python. It's full of short analog synth compositions on the theme of "extremely annoying and devolved." Kinda like the total madness of a circus calliope album, but more circuit-bent. This is music to bash your brains in with a hammer to! Roger Roger was one of the kings of library music; this album was originally released in 1971 by the French label Neuilly, easily one of the coolest libraries, with a roster that included Janko Nilović, Yan Tregger, Jean Bouchéty, and Nino Nardini.
