    Like 90% percent of all other male musicians, guitarist Eugene Chadbourne started playing pop music hoping to get the attention of girls. Very quickly he grew bored of the conventional styles and gravitated towards avant-garde jazz. Since then Eugene has been as The Quietus aptly points out "one of the most absurdly prolific left-field musicians of all times". He has recorded at least 358 albums with everyone from Anthony Braxton to Camper van Beethoven.
