Obit - I should be so lucky. They've been on about this on the radio this morning. When I walk the corridors of the local Swimming Pool there is a constant Bump Clap Bump Clap playing and probably a squeaky shrill woman's voice. I hate it.
So what's this doing in the music section?
Well perhaps advanced tech could help out down the old Folk Club. A pre-programmable Ballad Singing Machine AND (this is really new) an Audience Listening Machine so we can just leave the machinery to its own devices and sneak out for a quiet pint next door.

How about the Unprogrammable Digital Bodhran Machine? Turn it on at the beginning of a session, and off it goes. Will also attempt to join in airs, songs and djembe solos.

May it rust in pieces?

The 808 was a great machine. Whatever your musical taste, it's hard to really fault the use made of it in Marvin Gaye's Sexual Healing

Bloody expensive now, though!

For those of us with almost no money, the Korg Volca Beats at least gets us somewhere vaguely approching it...

If that was one of them there 808 things on Grace Jones's "La vie en rose" it's alright with me.

Interesting thought, fat B****rd. A quick search suggests that it was released in 1977, way before the 808. Certainly a great synthetic drum sound though.
