Given that name-dropping Killing Joke (esp 'early' Killing Joke) is the
music-wanker equivalent of a triple word score in Scrabble, the poll
question is as follows:

Which artist or band would you name-drop to get the highest possible score
at a music-wanker convention?

Criteria include but are not limited to: lack of attempt at commercial
success / downright self-sabotage, uniqueness, humour, social commentary,
mental illness, artistic pain, substance dependency, early / mysterious /
humorous death, ability to use ancillary wank-terms such as 'musique
concrete', 'the sound of the earth vomiting' and so forth.

I'm going with 'What is Pere Ubu?'


Who was "The Lords Of The New Church?"

And for the win, who was "Belfegore?"
