Default Terrible Avant-Garde/Experimental Artists

This is the thread wherein you talk shit on avant-garde music you don't like. I try to be pretty open minded when it comes to music, but there are many times when I'll listen to an artist and think "well this guy just sucks." Most of the time it's something that's gotten a lot of hype on Pitchfork and the likes, but sometimes it's an avant-garde band and I'm afraid whether or not I've missed the point. I'll usually return to it in those cases, but there are many times where I'm just sure that these people make shite music.

Opening example:



I have nothing bad to say about Zorn, his off-the-wall saxophonisms are great and this video is no exception. Yoko Fucking Ono is horrendous in this one, though. She sounds like Sainkho Namtchylak's retarded cousin getting attacked by a goat. Not even a threatening or dangerous animal, a fucking goat. John Zorn, you obviously have a lot of time on your hands since you release at least 15 albums a year, but fuck. You're John Zorn. You can jam with anyone you want who doesn't sound like a monkey with autism trying to speak Hmong.

tl;dr: What avant-garde artists do you think suck donkey balls?

Wow. That was terrible.
That's how I imagine all "experimental" singing sounds like to people who aren't into it.

My mind has transcended the space-time continuum. My body has abandoned its mortal shell to find itself in a tangent universe similar to hell, but there are a bunch of clowns there that tell horrible jokes and dance as you burn. I don't know whether to laugh, cringe or blow my brains out after listening to and watching that. My entire being feels traumatized.

Thanks... I think.

That John Cage asshole is...an asshole, too.

Yoko Ono sucks balls. My friends saw her at Fuji Rock this summer and cried (lol) at her performance because they were touched by her music. They're no longer my friends.

In other words, Yoko Ono is a douchebag, a donkey, a totally weiner face. Baby, she wants to pee in her panties.

I haven't heard much Scott Walker, but what I have heard I really dislike.

I quite like Bish Bosch to be honest.

It pains me to write this, since his work with Can makes him one of my favourite singers, but a lot of the stuff Damo Suzuki has been doing after Can is just terrible. Often his singing with his Network, as well as with some other bands and musicians, is just lazy. He sings exactly the same stuff all the time and he doesn't connect at all with the other musicians. There are still some good moments here and there, but with some of those albums I just wish they were instrumental.
