I'm getting excited about some purchases I'm about to make when I get paid.
I'm buying a 3 Octave Rosewood xylophone and an Autoharp.
Last night I dreamed of playing a gig where Dave, Chris and I played a bunch of 80's electro covers (except for "Another Satellite" by XTC which isn't electro but still a damned fine song) on the above instruments, a mandolin, a melodica and a variety of percussion including a tongue-drum...
I was stunned at how well it worked. I might have to make this, or something similar, work!
Among the songs we played were Propaganda's "P-Machinery", "His Box" by Dali's Car, "Lawn Chairs" by Our Daughters Wedding and "Nag Nag Nag" by Cabaret Voltaire.
