An outsider icon known for his crazed psych and waaaaaay-out-there cable show. A true Zelig of popular culture.
Seemingly unable to find an immediately-available niche in the outside world, Jerry Solomon spent the ’60s & ’70s carving his own niche and world into the grooves of records. Original copies were sold on the streets by Jerry himself and trade for four figures if you’re lucky enough to find someone willing to sell one.
The rarity and bizarre content of Jerry Solomon’s releases have music connoisseurs clamoring for them, though he funded, wrote, recorded, and self-distributed his uniquely fascinating music for no reason other than to simply put it out there. Equal parts strange, entertaining, and foreboding, Jerry’s music is always engaging, and one can’t help but feel these recordings offer a glimpse through a murky portal into the unadulterated creative experience. Approximately fifty years after their initial release, we’ve collected some of the weirdest and most compelling recordings from the 20th century…all his.
Past The 21st Century includes a Jerry Solomon zine penned by Bobby Weirdo, Virginity For All, a collection of Jerry’s rare 45’s spread over two LPs comes in a gatefold jacket with notes by Mr. Weirdo as well!
