Long live the misfit instruments!

This posting just appeared in MetaFilter:

The Hendrix of The Accordion, the Stevie Ray of the banjo, and even Tubas are producing some rockin’ stuff. I see something of a small trend here an I think it’s a good one. These artists take the insturments you hated to be stuck with in the high school band and turn them into something astounding. If anyone knows of other examples, I’d love to hear about ’em.

If you’re a MetaFilter member, feel free to mention a certain accordion player who plays a pretty mean Nine Inch Nails…
