1950 Saab 92
The Swiss Army knife (helping people remove their own limbs to save lives since 1890!)
a major graphic design movement & motherfuckin' HELVETICA (which was also pretty good little docu, by the way)
H. R. Giger
Ursula Andress (aka Honey Diver)
Most recently, I found out about this seething, bluesy, one-man rock gem from the Land of the Alps: Guitar Fucker.

And much like the Barbegazi, there's not much information to be found out about this guy. He's signed to Little Records out of Switzerland, a tiny little indie label run by two dudes with a total of four arms. He is a one man band because he's too much of an asshole to deal with other people (being an asshole = greatest mother of invention of all time). He's played with Bob Log III, Zen Guerilla, The Bellrays, and other only semi-recognizable acts. He might have been raised by harmonica-playing wolves.
Maybe this is old hat, maybe some of you have seen him play somewhere in the states (although I doubt that's happened yet). I can only hope he makes it round my way because if there's anything I love more than an angry, socially-retarded, egocentric musical genius, it's an angry, socially-retarded, egocentric musical genius with a foreign accent.
