There will be more from that interview later in the series when we come across another weird instrument with Joe Meek connections (any ideas, weird fans?).
As we mentioned before, not all the gear featured in the programmes are technically "instruments" (for example the inclusion here of a compression unit). Lots of bizarre devices were considered for the show including outboard, toys & software. In fact there will be lots of surprises as we get deeper into the chart and it builds into a somewhat bizarre list of musical strangeness!
If you missed out on the Top 20 Weirdest Instruments Episode One you can watch it here.
Oh, and just so you know... This is an occasional series and episodes will be posted at odd times throughout 2008, so make sure you subscribe to the Sonicstate newsletter so that you donâ€™t miss a single episode.
Meantime, as the professor would say, â€œweâ€™ve seen the future... And itâ€™s weirdâ€� ... So check you next time. Freak. Out.
What's so weird about Joe Meek? I am not sure how that segment became a part of this particular episode. Still, I love these, keep em coming!

Hi Fiddle. Not enough Professor in this one for you? Not to worry. There's plenty to come including a clip from his never-seen-before series, 'Synth Island!'

Why do you keep using that little novation sketch? You should sing more Shamen instead "move any mountain!"

The prof does plenty of singing in the Top 5 Greatest Sampler series (see link)including his lounge version of Move Any Mountain...As for the laptop sketch, it was used in the ads for the series we ran last year, but those were just teasers for the series. Thanks for watching!
