Slapp Happy - Casablanca Moon/Acnalbasac Noom

Acnalbasac Noom was an album recorded by a band of avant-garde musicians trying to make pop music. They collaborated with Faust for the album but their record label rejected it. The switched labels and re-recorded it without Faust and released it as Casablanca Moon. Eventually the original album was also released under the title Acnalbasac Noom. Acnalbasac Noom is a bit more experimental while Casablanca Moon has a bit more pop sensibilities. It's fun to listen to the same album rerecorded by the same band.

  1. I love you for posting about Slapp Happy. Quite an amazing band, and indeed adventurous for rehashing material in two different forms.
