The two guys backing Bjork up in that performance are Matmos, a band that's used a lot of really weird stuff throughout their career to make music. Probably the strangest was using to movements of snails in a glass container to block lasers thereby triggering sounds.

I can't remember the name of the band to save the live of me, but the most unusual instrument I've ever seen used in a band (out side of a symphonic band) is bassoon.

Well, it's not a band, some 50 years old music but I think it's unusual a lot
Orchestra and typewriter
