If the box is too heavy or too expensive for you, you can also buy all the LPs individually from January 19th, 2024.

Classics only

The LPs show Omar Rodriguez-Lopez as a music obsessive who jumps effortlessly from one genre to the next: jazz fusion, experimental rock, acid jazz, electronica, prog, psychedelia, synthpop, free jazz and avant-garde.Many of his solo albums have become modern classics, such as his collaborations with Can singer Damo Suzuki, post-punk icon Lydia Lunch or Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante.
