It’s good to see that so many of you share our obsession with all things weird as we continue with episode 3 of our occasional series.
And this one’s as bonkers as ever with chart positions 16 and 15.
Big thanks to Ade Utley for his ruminations on the Coral Guitar despite having been slap in the middle of recording some new Portishead tracks. The subsequent album 'Third' gets an official release in mid April.
Ade will be appearing later in the chart as we continue our quest to find the Top 20 Weirdest Instruments... Ever!

It'd be great if you could elaborate more on the instruments, more visuals, more audio, more technobabble...Gimme gimme gimme, I want some more!

I hope that our new series Wigerdal's World may help fill in the gaps between episodes of the TTWI. And if you feel the urge to pick up a DVCam yourself, we have a new series coming made up entirely of submissions from Sonic users. Details soon. Thanks for watching!

Is that bass station the only thing you have kicking around?

ha ha! YES...On that day's filming. Sonic was moving offices and all the kit was locked in a cupboard. I had an idea for the sketch but it was getting dark and we needed to film it quick. I grabbed the only 'board I could find that wasn't locked away, the Bass Station, hence its double appearance in this and the software sketch. (apologies to Novation).
