Doug Fir

That 1 Guy is a spectacle, pure and simple. The Las Vegas virtuoso, born Mike Silverman, has more tricks up his sleeves than a pai gow dealer at the Bellagio, only with the cult following to back it up. Since the introduction of his marvelously indulgent creation, the Magic Pipe—an industrial, homemade double bass made from piping—he's blazed a one-man trail of oddly melodic, percussive, and super spaced-out funk-hop. Other homemade sundries include the Magic Boot (an electronically wired cowboy boot) and the Magic Saw (guess). His singular talents have landed him cameos on Tom Wait's Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers, and Bastards, as well as partnerships with similarly bizarro contemporaries like Buckethead (the two even cut an album of their own under the name Frankenstein Brothers). Caution: could be habit forming. RYAN J. PRADO
