    All right, I've arrived a little bit late to the party... perhaps my offerings will bring joy.

    This has an early Residents feel to it, and the whacked-out redneck lyrics just add an additional level of demented delight.

    George Coleman here goes on a very odd crime spree.

    Jascha Ephraim was a guy who lived in Asheville (NC) for a while. He did some wild live performances back in the day.

    These days, it takes a lot of perversion to shock me. That said, Joe Aufricht is fucked in the head.

    Thanks to the Subgenius Hour of Slack, I discovered Joe Newman's amazing "Rudy Schwartz Project". Here's a sample.

    Johnny Future hails from Little Rock, Arkansas. He is nuts.

    More to come soon, including more Johnny Future and Rudy Schwartz Project.

    Korpiklaani - Beer Beer

    A Finnish metal band doing Irish folk-inspired songs. This came up on my Dropkick Murphys Pandora station, and my eyebrow quirked.

    "Wooden Pints" is even better. :)

    Two Virgins -John Lennon and Yoko Ono The one record of John's work never commercially published, for a good reason. And pretty much most of these guys' songs.
    Peach Plum Pear - Joanna Newsom Her voice.

    i heard this last month while writing about electronic music in Iceland. although it's not quite the strangest music i'Ve ever heard (there are numerous comparisons with Stockhausen), it's credited as the 1st ever electronic music peice composed in Iceland. When it first played in Iceland in 1960, it damn near caused a riot amongst the highly conservative chattering classes.

    I have to be full of myself and say that pure ego is perhaps the strangest

    Here's some entries that may qualify as strange, in different ways:

    Arthur Brown - Fire

    Fractal music, Mandel based math; recursive patterns. Unknown composer. I like this piece, tonally, more than some of the other similarly generated compositions people have made.

    Alarmingly insane, utterly wonderful granular audio/video installation performance at STRP called "Model V".

    Current 93 (David Tibet)... Awesome neo folk. Great lyrics.
