A mindblowing masterpiece, of course included in the NWW list: Red Noise's one and only album was originally released near the end of 1970 on the legendary Futura label. Red Noise was a radical, inventive avant rock band with some improvised jazz elements, as well as a heavy dose of Zappa-esque humor. The first side is a bunch of interconnected tracks, some of them much shorter than a minute, like the opening piece, "Cosmic Toilet Ditty," which consists of footsteps and a toilet flush. Quirky songs, often with scatological content, compete with free-for-all instrumental bits, often with raging saxophone blasts. There is even time for some wild guitar solos on "The Galactic Sewer-Song" and "20 Mirror Mozarts." The lengthy closing track, "Sarcelles C'Est l'Avenir," is a wild and noisy avant rock free jam with an energetic rhythm section, blasts of electric guitar and sax, flute bleats, and organ squalls. The piece has a freaked-out intensity that belies the silliness of the earlier tracks, and really ties the album together quite nicely. ~ Rolf Semprebon, All Music Guide
