Telectu - Ctu-Telectu

This is the debut album of Portuguese mutli-media avant-guard free-range etc. duo Telectu, not necessarily a concept album (as far as I can discern) but a collection of very strange songs titled after various Philip K. Dick stories. Tentative research turns up little meaningful information in English on the group besides a massive list of albums - even a simple Google search turns up bootlegs within the first several hits, or pages of hyperbolic gibberish like: "In its triple conception, Telectu states in “Quartetos” the refinement of the experimental language, in ambitious pieces, captivating, of rare idiomatic and solistic [sic] value, proposing jazz-off in a context of total improvisation." What is the truth behind this mad album of synthesizer squeals, echo chambers, woodblock percussion, and barked vocalization? Who cares? Besides the sheer twisted glory of the album itself, it also allows your host to introduce a new "Dick" tag, and gives me an excuse to post a picture of a tiger wearing a fucking necktie.
Tighten the screws on your inner wingnut.
