R Stevie Moore

I'm probably being very ignorant about someone you've all known about for years, but I'll risk it. Just heard him for the first time mere minutes ago. Many little touches of accidental similarity, might appeal to you...

"I Like to Stay Home" (1986)

"Little Man" (1976)

... in fact, forget it, have the playlist, since everything is great:

Would you believe I was just thinking about starting an R Stevie thread?

He's what you might describe as phenomenal, putting out hundreds of self-released albums over the last 35 years, and his material goes from straight power-pop to stuff like this, which defies all categorisation("strung out doo-wop played at the wrong speed" is the best way I could describe it)

His back catalogue can seem a bit intimidating, I think the best thing to do is just dip in and see what takes. You only have to hear a smattering of his songs to realise the guy throws away more amazing ideas than most songwriters ever have.
Some consider childish dreams a matter of necessity

Amazing stuff. The 'so many ideas' thing is so overused but it's true here.
