love pedal pickle vibe (not to far out but it inspires)

hook them all together and turn a few on.. rearrange and do it again
Death by Audio - Robot
Electro Harmonix - Micro Synth and Ring Thing
Line 6 DL-4, MM-4, and FM-4 (with the expression pedals, of course)
Those are the ones that come to mind immediately. However, rather than looking to a single effects pedal to come up with far out sounds, I tend to enjoy using a combination of effects to produce other worldly tones. For instance, play some chords through an EHX Big Muff into a Boss OC-2 Octave pedal into a Flanger. The Big Muff creates all kinds of harmonics which further confuses the Boss OC-2 which doesn't know how to react to chords anyway, so it'll jump all around looking for the note. And then the Flanger takes all that chaos, and puts some kind of order back into it with it's sweeping sonic signature.
My strongest recommendation for a strange delay that is moderately affordable is: Waitstates by Sound Substance.
My friend Dale builds them in Richardson. It is an ADA delay, that is a digital chip-delay that has digital to analog converters w/ up to 770 ms of delay w/o an expression pedal (with the expression pedal it's up to around 1000) In addition, the pedal has a triangle wave LFO clock which you can use to modulate the speed or the repeats. It self oscillates in at least two different ways. It can simultaneously, self-oscillate and repeat
Good luck finding one, if you do they go for $250-300, but its far cooler than a lot of competitors and way more transparent.
Listen to my signature line track, Chickory Chestnutt Cathedral for an example of many of the things it can do.
Also on this track, I used the Moogerfooger Phaser MF-103. It like many of the Moog pedals can get extremely weird. It can be pushed into ring modulation by adjusting the rate of sweep to the highest settings. It can phase imperceptibly slowly. It also can pretty closely emulate the Mu-tron Bi-phase (and far beyond), because you may plug any type of waveform into the Sweep-in jack which allows you to have two separate simultaneous LFO's: one controlling the first 6 stages of the phaser, and the second controlling the last 6. There can be so much movement in your signal, that it would even make Mellon Collie discombobulated.
Don't even get me started on the Moog Ring Modulator and the Cluster Flux.
Manzanera used a Boss DS-1 on that track . . . I couldn't imagine it, but who knows.
Congrats Baskervils on your excellent taste.
If you want weird and adjustable you need to go the Moog route. Mr. Eno himself is a lifelong Moog user (mostly the keyboards and synths).
If it weren't for Eno, I don't think that guitarists would be half as pedal obsessed as they are now. Think of his work designing the Frippertronics unit, of his work designing the Edge's sounds, manipulating Belew's synthesized guitar on "Remain in Light," etc. He's pushed innovation in guitar sound.
In addition to the Moogerfoogers, you'll also like the Sound Substance WaitStates (which I mentioned before), the Fuzzmulator, and the BlueZdrive (which can almost made a guitar sound like a distorted cello with the right tweaking)
I don't think that particular pedal was used (although distortion and filters are definitely wiggling around), but weird definitely has it's place in pop. What is interesting about Eno is what is treated in his songs and what isn't. Some elements are left fairly bare while others are put through the ringer (literally).
