Product Description:

While they were seriously accomplished experimental musicians in their '60s heyday, Perrey & Kingsley sure could come off like a couple of goofballs. They spent hours of time and miles of tape meticulously crafting space-age mod-pop out of looped tones, blips and bleeps, and their beloved Ondioline--an odd vibrato-producing proto-synth. Yet the often hilarious results belie their arduous creative process.
Still, given that the Beastie Boys, Air, Stereolab, and Beck pushed many a unit with nods to both their experimentalism and off-kilter charm, Perrey & Kingsley's recordings can be seen as the first crystallization of electronica, space-lounge, and many late '90s micro-genres. Not bad for a couple of nerds among the mods. VANGUARD VISIONARIES places all the stuff the casual fan needs on one disc and includes the best cuts from their two proper studio albums.
