Gilles Peterson // Significant Album // #157

October 15, 2015

Each week, we will be sharing the top 200 albums that have shaped me so far. The album this week is Dr. Octagonecologyst by Dr.Octagon.

Dr.Octagon, a fictional character created by American rapper Keith Matthew Thornton, also known as Kool Keith, made his first appearance in 1996 on Thornton’s debut solo album, released on Bulk Recordings, it speaks of the time-travelling E.T. from Jupiter.

This album was an unprecedented, highly innovative and unorthodox piece of work- always remembered for DJ Q-bert’s scratching and Kool Keith’s ingenious lyrics.
