Help me find a strange outsider rock band

I've searched and searched to no avail, and I'm starting to think this whole thing was a fever dream. I could swear that I read an article a few years ago about a Japanese rock band which was formed by a few schoolgirls who had never actually heard rock music. Everything they knew came from reading about it in magazines. I believe this took place during the 1960's. Of course, I may have some or all of the details wrong. Can you restore my sanity?

Help me find some slow guitar songs with simple melodies

I really like playing the song "Claudia's Theme" from the Unforgiven soundtrack. I'm not a very good guitar player but it's a slow enough pace and it's so deceptively simple that I can really concentrate on performing the piece or I can just pluck away at it without having to give it a ton of thought.

UK Childrens' songfilter

Hullo, I am trying to identify the names of these songs I learned to play years ago. According to my music book they are childrens' songs from the UK.

Electronica-scored "Fantastic Planet"/"Planete Sauvage"?

Years ago I saw a version of the classic weird animated sci-fi movie Fantastic Planet (Planete Sauvage) where the sounds and dialogue had been completely replaced by electronic music from Venetian Snares, Matmos, and the like. I can't find it anywhere - all the sites that blogged about it link to the same outdated video link. Anyone have a line on it? [more inside]

More music recommendations sought - what music are you passionate about?

I find that I tend to like new music most when someone explains to me why it's interesting and important. That is, I'm more likely to enjoy [random genre for which I have a narrative] than [more music like what I already enjoy, but without a narrative]. And most of my favorite music is stuff that was shared with me by someone who really, really liked it. What do you really, really like right now? And why? [more inside]

How to make musical electronic blips

I'd like to replicate the electronic beat heard in this song so that I can cover the song on guitar and record the drums as a separate track.

Video suggestions for a classical music obsessed 12 year old w/ austim?

My nephew is a musical genius- perfect pitch, memorized discography of most prominent classical composers, and he plays clarinet and piano (also almost any instrument he picks up.) He has autism and has been preoccupied with the Baby Einstein (and language and Beethoven) series since he was very, very young (a baby). I think one of the reasons he still holds onto it and will watch it over and over is because it's visually and musically interesting with out having a plot that his attention cannot hold onto or is too difficult to grasp emotionally. Anyone have recommendations for music/band films that would be appropriate for a 12 year old that is visually interesting with out a plot? He has watched almost every Disney and classic musical out there, but I wonder if there is something like the BE series, but more mature. Thanks!

Classical music recommendations for a listener of free jazz?

I listen to a very wide variety of music, but one giant gap in my knowledge is classical music. I'm looking for recommendations for classical music to check out (either specific albums, works, or composers). To narrow it down a bit, how about something from any era that would be of interest to someone with an appreciation for avant-garde/free jazz from the 60s (think Coleman, later Coltrane, Shepp, Taylor... heck, even Brotzmann)? And preferably music that's available on streaming services.
