Figure this could be an interesting discussion. Who are your favorite oddities that stand well outside of the mainstream. A few that come readily to mind are: Seasick Steve- who doesn't love a singing, guitar/homemade instrument playin, stompin hobo. The man is magical. William Elliot Whitmore- he sounds like a 20s preacher, and his subject matter is basically southern gothic. Scott H Hiram- this guy is a wicked one man band Hollowbelly- a one man band playing a cross between blues and punk on a home made cigar box guitar....I can dig it.
