"Half Machine Lip Moves" by Chrome 1979
Chrome  "Half Machine Lip Moves"  1979 (USA)
This album is one of the great "underground" recordings of all time.  Chrome was a little-known band from San Francisco that came into being about the same time as punk rock, but maintained a deceidedly freaky psychedelic edge and a morbid interest in SciFi dystopias.  Basically, they were "cyberpunks" in the truest sense, at least a decade before that term was coined!  This is their third album, and the most indicative of the gonzo genius of Chrome at their best.  Founding member Damon Edge passed away a few years ago, but lead guitarist & vocalist Helios Creed has maintained an active music career, and occasionally still goes out on tour as "Chrome."
