Freakmaster General Maconie presents 120 minutes of not-normal songs that range from desolate and challenging to shiny and beautiful. This week's Featured Album is from King Crimson.

Two hours of musical brainstew courtesy of Great Uncle Stuart. Each week, Freakmaster General Maconie presents 120 minutes of not-normal songs that range from desolate and challenging to shiny and beautiful. Expect lush soundscapes, banging beats, angular guitars and tender instrumentals all within minutes of each other, presided over with fathomless knowledge by your gracious host. Not exactly what you'd call mainstream, but it cuts deep and oozes non-pretentious musical profundity.

All that, plus King Crimson provides a magically hefty chunk of musical goodness, courtesy of four tracks from the 1974 album 'Starless and Bible Black'. Plus Stuart picks Lamb as this week's Live Freaks.
