DEVO - Are You Experienced

DEVO is great at covers and their take on Jimi is definitely cool. If you don't like the song at least make it to 2:05. It is sad the Hendrix estate won't let DEVO include it on DVD or album compilations.
Not necessarily beautiful but mutated.

We lost a DEVO this week.
RIP Alan Myers.
Here is some of Alan's best drumming IMO and another great DEVO cover.

PWK American Way Interview 1989

Here is an old interview of PWK and some of the Klipsch management. It will be easier to read if you save to your computer. If I ever find the original I'll make much better scans.

1950's Built-in Audio Furniture

I really dig 50's Hi-Fi auI really like this 1950's built-in. It has me re-thinking source placement.
 Nice extending side table with hidden turntable.

The Orb Featuring Lee Scratch Perry

I haven't posted anything weird in a while. This is an interesting combo The Orb and The Upsetter. Not what I expected but I dig it.

Golden Clouds

Pioneer Omni Directional Loudspeaker System

This is a crazy looking speaker by Pioneer distributed via Fukuin Electronics in Tokyo. Pioneer was truly thinking outside of the box back in the 60's.

Finally an article written for me but back in 1961. 
How do they sound? What do they cost? And do you really need them? YES!

I found this while scavenging the countryside for audio goodies. The price is $495. I have too many projects going to pick this up.  This would be the coolest for tube storage. I could image this sitting on an old radio store counter in the 20's or 30's. The construction is tin but the detail is all there.
 The above image is closer to original while the picture below has been manipulated to show detail.

Nice EL37 tubes. I hope they are still good.

 The manual with build sheets was also included
