Ken and People Like Us, and People Unlike Them,

Cromagnon's might be related to Negativland. Found on the interwebz:

"They had a big concept, and ESP-Disk was behind it, and the result was Orgasm, a jumble of rackety percussion, chants, shouts, moans, giggles, whispers, drones, found sounds, bizarre rituals, ethno-freak-outs and one actual song, “Caledonia,” a sort of metal bagpipe reel, and the only album released by the weird collective known as Cromagnon. The story was that Grasmere and Elliot contacted a hippie commune to record with a group of musicians known only as the “Connecticut Tribe” that may or may not have included future members of The Residents and Negativland, which added a ton of mystique to the already bizarre album."
