PIGSHIT: Sometimes it’s sunset, sometimes it’s sunrise: Inside the mind of Larry “Wild Man” Fischer

IRWIN CHUSID (author, “Songs In The Key Of Z”):

Outsider music is a slippery genre. It’s musicians who tend to be self-taught, untrained, working certainly way outside the channels of mainstream music. There are very important qualifications:  They are sincere about it. They mean it. They’re not doing it to be funny. They’re not doing it to be outrageous. This is a sincere musical expression. Wild Man Fischer in many ways is a poster child for outsider music.

MARK MOTHERSBAUGH (Devo):

At his best, he’s mainlined right into this creative kind of subconscious. It’s coming from a pure place.
