"The extraordinary and original Ivor Cutler..."

I ran into that quite by chance, and I don't know why I'd never heard of this man, though I must have seen him, since Wikipedia says he was in The Beatles' "Magical Mystery Tour" — he was Buster Bloodvessel — and of course, I've seen "Magical Mystery Tour." And:
Cutler was a noted eccentric, dressing in a distinctive style including plus-fours and hats adorned with many badges, travelling mainly by bicycle and often communicating by means of sticky labels printed with "Cutlerisms," one of which, "never knowingly understood" came to be applied by supporters and detractors alike. Others included "Kindly disregard," reserved for official correspondence, and "to remove this label take it off." The reception room of his home contained some pieces of ivory cutlery, intended as a pun on his name.

I wonder if he'd could be classified as Outsider music, like Daniel Johnston or Captain Beefheart?
