I first heard about Cornelius, the eccentric Japanese pop star (a.k.a. Keigo Oyamada), from my friend Pedro Bell. (Yes, I’m talking about the renowned Funkadelic album-cover artist.)
Pedro’s taste in weirdness goes all the way back to his collegiate infatuations with Frank Zappa and Sun Ra.
I haven’t gotten into Cornelius too deep. But you know me... I’ll jump on a FREE MP3 in a heartbeat.
Click here to hear a 2006 Cornelius track – “Wataridori” – streaming on my Vox blog.
You can download “Wataridori” from a website called RCRD LBL. Just follow this link.
