- Thinking Plague (highly recommended Avantgarde-Prog-Rock including also classical insturments and Blues-Influence, beautiful strange cacophonies between the melody's of the voice and the instruments... this is really art!
=> Recommended Albums: "In Extremis" (songs "Dead Silence", "Sleeper Cell anthem", "This weird world" and "Behold the man" on youtube) and "In this Life"

- Deerhoff (Avant-Pop-Rock, Album-recommendation: Friend Opportunity (2007)). Good experimental band with absolute own style, except their songs are seldom longer than 4 minutes,.

- Aquaserge (soft dreamly Avant-Progrock with melancholic french singing)

- Lumerians

- Igra Staklenih Perli


=> All these Bands are realy good experimental Avantgarde-Stufff, but Thinking Plague is the absolute best of them!!! You must check them out!!!!

Thank you Grindy :-D . Does anyone know experimental Avantgerds-Bands including melodic singing? Similare to Thinking Plague, Morgan Delt, Aquaserge oder Deerhoff? Most Avantgarde-Bands I can find only produce pure instrumental music.

And one other Thing that would interest me: Would you consider experimental and modern Shoegaze-bands like "Whirr", "Sway" (check out EP "The Millia Pink And Green" on Youtube) and "The Telewire" (check out song "Feel like Fire" on Youtube) as avantgardistic? I'm undecided concerning this question: On the one hand the Shoegaze-guitar-Sound of these Bands is such experimental that it has a taste of Avantgarde or of an Opposition to normal Rock oder Pop. On the other Hand, it's perhaps better if Shoegaze stands as a complete Genre for its own, because all these Shoegaze-Bands I mentioned transpose their experimentality in the same way: They reduce it to the dreamy-wooled guitar-sound in combination with a little over-reverbed voice, whereas the composing of the melodies - in my personal oppinion - isn't "queer" enough to be called "avantgardistic", and these bands don't apply the typical-avantgardistic "breaches" of harmonic consonance or illusions... in the contrary: They even mark themselves by keeping up the harmonic consonance, but a lilttle avantgardistic touch is rebuild by letting fade this "harmonic consonance" into "the illusion of a dreamsphere", where different tones are not dinstinguishable among each other so that in this case, even the maintaining of an illusion can be associated with an avantgardistic/ surrrealistic touch. But it is questionable if "expermentality" is avantgardistic if it is an experimentality generally shared by most bands of a certain genre and not an experimentalitiy used by a single band who tries to delimit itself from all other bands. In return, it is also questionable to define avantgardisitic music with this criterion of an "as large as possilbe delimitation from all other bands". And in philosophing around this way, I'm starting to notice that it is even more questionable if there is a general criterion for avantgardistic music :-D :-D :-D .

Thanks for your answers in advance!

Off the top of my head:
Non Credo
The Science Group (the first album)
Henry Cow (the albums with Krause)
Art Bears
Skeleton Crew
Cosa Brava
La Société des Timides à la Parade des Oiseaux
This Heat
Curlew (the album with Amy Denio)
Koenjihyakkei
Skeleton Crew
Extra Life
NichelOdeon/InSonar
Biota (the newer, folkier stuff)
Scott Walker (also obviously after his pop beginnings)
Bob Drake
5 UU's (the albums with Drake singing)
Shub Niggurath (the zeuhl band)

I see you're also from Germany.
Do you know Babyblaue-Seiten.de?
It's a prog site with lots of AvantProg reviews.
Reading them was one of the biggest influences on my musical taste.
