Beardy Freak, Friend of Finland aka Tripod Sardine
In the 1990s I did a lot of Mail Art, which involved a lot of trading 'weird tapes' and other nonsense. Then I started doing computer manipulations under the name Tripod Sardine, and then... I listen to a lot of DIY/avant garde/odd stuff, and enjoy thinking about how strange it all is.
