I can't stand Fischer's vocals, they are so annoying. Never could get into him.

Have you read the book Songs In the Key Of Z by Irwin Chusid?  It covers a number of outsider musicians including Fischer, Captain Beefheart, the Shaggs, Jandek, Daniel Johnston, Wesley Willis and more.  There's also an album of the same title that goes with it.

I have a somewhat large interest in artists and bands like this. I am a huge fan of Captain Beefheart, Wesley Willis, Jandek, The Shaggs, Frank Zappa, Little Fyodor, Philemon Arthur and the Dung and, if I may say so myself, The Residents, Snakefinger and Renaldo & The Loaf.

Never heard of the book and BIG thanks for bringing it to my attention. Smile
 
Speaking of Captain Beefheart, How could I forget about The Residents?!

How about The Rudy Schwartz Project? This one might be quite hard to find.
 
And again this is for mature audience.
