Outsider Music

Aw yes, outsider music, dare to be weird and non commercial in almost every sense and still make a big enough splash to be uncovered years later and appreciated for it's greatness, i guess this is a list of my favorite outsider albums and a place for people to talk about bands that are out of the ordinary.
1 Osamu Kitajima
Benzaiten


Sadly this isn't on sputnik, released in 1974, Osamu Kitajima mixed traditional Japanese folk music with electronic music, somehow reminds me of Boards of Canada, as well as other IDM groups, very cool and worth checking out.
2Captain Beefheart
Trout Mask Replica


What can I say about tmr that hasn't already been said a million times, this is a great album, check it out as soon as possible.
3Dome
Dome


Formed from a few members of monumental post-punk outfit Wire, in my opinion, the dome material was much more fascinating. I highly suggest checking this song out, for it's time very unusual, strangely catchy and very haunting http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZE6kMoqP4I
4 Kenneth Higney
Attic Demonstration


Take funk bass, rock guitar, sub par drumming, and i guy who couldn't sing his way out of a paper bag, somehow it works, and it's awesome.
5Daniel Johnston
Hi, How Are You


I can't really explain the greatness of this guy, it's so simple and beautiful, one of my personal favorites. You either get it or you don't. I'm including the song monster inside of me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdofYR_LKBA which was actually off the album Laurie, which if anyone can find it or has it should send it to me.
