The first link also has an early ad for a "Gizmo Fingerthing", I have more ads but they're not on the site yet...

Gizmotron.org is manufacturing new parts for gizmotrons and a new Gizmotron 2.0 for 2014!

Here is video of us playing a restored gizmotron: http://youtu.be/Ok4nGFhxAyI

Godley and Creme's 3-album Consequences was the demo for the Gizmo. It's got 2 disks of comedy from Peter Cook mixed in with some decent songs, and was a luxurious box in vinyl. The first disk is the "showcase" for Gizmo effects.

Jimmy Page plays it on "In the Evening."

Sounds like a Mellotron a little bit, don't you think?

10cc's homage to Herman's Hermits.

Im sure Jimmy page used it on the start of led zeppelin's "in the evening", which would make sense as to the timeline of when that was recorded and released. Or maybe it was just his usual bowing vibe, with a load of production on top. I've never gone beyond strumming chord sequences on an accoustic, which is in the corner of the lounge, but it'd be cool if it was remade and used in today's climate.
