Used to be in one, yes. Doesn't exist any more but what a blast it was.
We did not one but two entire Beatles albums (in parodies), live.
you ever hear of Tommy Hall from The 13th Floor Elevators?.....
hey plays an electric jug....
Born September 21, 1943(age 74)
Associated acts The 13th Floor Elevators
Tommy Hall (born September 21, 1943) is an electric jug player from Texas. He was a founding member of the American psychedelic rock band The 13th Floor Elevators.
A special aspect of The Elevators' sound came from Tommy Hall's innovative electric jug. The jug, a crock-jug with a microphone held up to it while it was being blown, sounded somewhat like a cross between a Minimoog and cuica drum. In contrast to traditional musical jug technique, Hall did not blow into the jug to produce a tuba-like sound. Instead, he vocalized musical runs into the mouth of the jug, using the jug to create echo and distortion of his voice. When playing live, he held the microphone up to the mouth of the jug, but when recording the Easter Everywhere album, the recording engineer placed a microphone inside the jug to enhance the sound.
take a look....1966
Thanks Harry. I'll take a listen when I'm back home and can get decent bass on this here electric jug.
Those guys look like they're playing actual music though. We tried to shy away from that. We could boogie but when we did it wasn't as funny.
In fact we took great pains to have "rehearsals", not "practices". We never practiced, because if you "practice" you get good. And we can't have that.
So Harry your video popped up a 'suggestion' on my screen of this one:
I didn't know the Electric Prunes used an autoharp. I picked up one of their old LPs recently, in good shape.
You heard of them in Buffalo? Very interesting but I can't hear him on the Jug. Grateful dead was a Jug Band also.
