Just take a look at this video:
To quote Jim Houston:
Based on the lyric (and alternate title) “Big Ideas: Don’t get any” I grouped together a collection of old redundant hardware, and placed them in a situation where they’re trying their best to do something that they’re not exactly designed to do, and not quite getting there.
It doesn’t sound great, as it’s not supposed to.
Sinclair ZX Spectrum – Guitars (rhythm & lead)
Epson LX-81 Dot Matrix Printer – Drums
HP Scanjet 3c – Bass Guitar
Hard Drive array – Act as a collection of bad speakers – Vocals & FX
Now that’s a line-up I haven’t seen too often….
And if you don’t believe him, there’s photographic proof, if there is such a thing as proof AP (after Photoshop). I believe.
Thank you Jim Houston. Thank you Radiohead for thinking up the competition. And thank you Jemima Kiss for alerting me via Twitter.
