Waits is king. How about that Buckethead guy? Jonathan Richmond is cool. If you haven't checked out Dred Zeppelin, do it.
Scott H Biram
(so people can search)
who's that young Leon Redbone type fella who sings "central time"? he's an oddball
what's the difference between an oddball and an anachronism tho
Leon Redbone always struck me as pretty oddball.
Col. Bruce Hampton
I took odd ball to be non mainstream and a bit on the unique side. Seasick Steve fits that description and definitely gets my vote. Two others that I would add are:
The late Norton Buffalo.
Both fabulous live.
Weird Al Yankovic.
Definitely not! But I would call The Singing Postman that. Sixties UK, from Norfolk, his big hit was Ha' yew got a loight bowy". I think that was the spelling but it was a long time ago.
Wild Man Fischer
I was always fond of hawkwind and the arogant worms
Ya beat me to it.
Love that party likker & the wimmerns...
Peace - Deeve
Focus gets my vote!
Others have mentioned Scott Biram.
I have seen him clear a room in 1 1/2 song.
Definitely an acquired taste.
Yeah, I like to crank me some Bob Log III once in awhile, and would also second the Dred Zep and Joe Walsh suggestions.
The 1st Soul Coughing album is great stuff, as is the 1st G. Love and Special Sauce. Oddball frontpersons fronting great groove units.
Bob Dylan. He hates doing anything the same way twice. Sometimes he gives (live) his guitar/keyboard players riff parts that fit together just like the Count Basie band of the 1930's. Best live band leader ever.
I presume we're talking guitar-oriented ?
Ichirou Agata (Melt Banana)
This could go on a while....
