A companion to Irwin Chusid’s book of the same name, Songs in the Key of Z — The Curious Universe of Outsider Music surveys the outer reaches of the music kingdom, where the Shaggs and Tiny Tim are superstars. From a Swedish Elvis impersonator to a tuneless Texan recluse, these obscure artists bravely follow their dreams, and don’t let pitch, key, or even sanity get in the way. The effect is an unsettling assault on the very notion of ”good” and ”bad” music. B
