This machine is fantastic. And I love the track too.
Not much of a song, and the sound quality is poor, but it’s amusing to see Wyatt, Ayers and Ratledge in full 60’s poseur mode:
Pity this guy disappeared from the music industry — if they replaced 99% of all rap songs ever made with this sort of thing then the 90s would have been much more enjoyable.
How is it that these things have come together? I’m a massive fan of satirical musical genius Rob J. Madin (creator of YouTube sensation Brett Domino). And then he goes and does a cover of a Genesis song from Selling England By The Pound. It’s ‘More Fool Me’, admittedly not a very proggy song, but still, what a combo.
As one of the commentators notes, the production is done in such a way that you can really hear that it’s a Phil Collins song.
Yes, there really were bands and videos like this in the late 70’s.
ELO at their proggiest.
Seems to have been shot at a student union performance, and while it’s low budget it’s surprisingly well done and the sound isn’t the usual unlistenable pile of hiss you’d expect.
Have to say that Mike de Albuquerque wasn’t the most scintillating stage performer in those days.
Like the combination of gloom and desert heat here:
Another great economics rap — round two of Keynes vs Hayek:
First one here.
