Bands with Odd/Interesting Concepts

I tried looking for a thread with this idea, but gave up after a while. Anyways, I love finding bands that have extremely odd or interesting concepts they mixed together and make you say wtf just happened. Some examples of what I am talking about are:

Sykotik Sinfoney is a weird 80s band that reminds me of ICP playing happy metal haha

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjuUO3clEjU

Carnival in Coal is some avante garde band that goes all over the place

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DWb7BlS40w

Le Scrawl is a ska/jazz/grindcore band. They have a bunch of awesome shit haha

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYJbc2i0Mug

Ten Masked Men is a death metal band that covers pop songs.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVPd8qXYY70

So where I'm going at is seeing if anyone knows about any other awesome bands that have cool mixture of genres. It would be awesome to find some mariachi grindcore or some disco black metal haha.

I remember hearing about a death metal band of all English teachers and all their songs are about famous authors. At their concerts, they'd throw out books to go along with each song and their students got extra credit if they came to their shows.

There are lots of jazz fusion avant-garde metal bands.

Shining and Aghora come to mind straight off.

I'd say you could include bands like Alarum and Exivious in that category too.

Morglbl, Psychofagist, Karcius, Akphaezya, etc...

It's actually a pretty extensive genre, so I'm not sure I'd call it "odd." Interesting, nonetheless.

I was referring the odd part to the Sykotik Sinfoney and Le Scrawl ideas. I think avante-garde is more interesting that anything because there is so much damn work that goes into creating those songs. Thanks for the new bands for me to check out
