Henry Lee Roberts



 I got this 45 off a blind buy on ebay a while back (there was no soundclip or description, but with a title like "Space Jesus Atomic Judgement [Dissolved] it wasn't that surprising that this turned out to be something interesting). I would actually venture that it's the most captivating record I've ever stumbled across this way. I'm a definite fan of outsider electro soul/funk/boogie and this is pretty much shitting over almost everything else in the subgenre. Dark, apocalyptic-sounding analog synths. Weird, shifting time signatures. Topical (to 1985), ranting lyrics about the impending end of days when Halley's Comet finally arrives. There's a lot to love here. I would follow this man onto the tail of the comet.

Listen: Halley's Comet (Dissolved)  
Listen: Space Jesus Atomic Judgement (Dissolved)
