Damn.

That is fucking disgusting.

The faces he makes while slaughtering the song in front of a national audience just makes it so much more offensive.

what do you expect from a 70's novelty songwriter/comedian?

joey

Ha! My dad loves him.

I remember seeing this when it was first broadcast. So lame!
King Crimson's Discipline had been released and Fripp was doing
some interesting work with that instrument.

Gaahhh!!!! My ears! My eyes! My... tongue! Dead Banana

Surely they had to overdub an applause track. Who would clap for that?

Cheers,
Brian
Scott Stites
I imagine people clapped for it because (as yet) it is impossible to send a load of hipsters thirty years back in time to mass-bag on the wrong playing of an instrument that was (and likely still is) largely unheard of to the vast majority of the Tonight Show audience.

as painful as that was ( MY ASS IS BLEEDING Dead Banana very frustrating ) i think its pretty cool that people used to go on talk shows and just demo synthesizers. although we have youtube now, so we can see hundreds of people raping beautiful instruments anytime we want, having little bits like that were fun. id like to see some one go on letterman now and explain a buchla or Mattson or any numberous other modern modulars and odd synths.

heres another goofy late night tv synth demo

So I guess it was easy to get on TV in the 80's.
SPUDBOY WILSON
I thought it was cool.
that is the future and well.....there it is
tracking problems?

G707 is still one of the coolest designs IMHO. The GR700 really wasn't that bad of a synth in terms of tracking the hex of the 707. You did have to be precise, and I think it works better with a stand-alone box like the Ibanez MC-1. Well and I actually like the glissando tracking errors...

Official: from now on, every time I turn on my modular, I'm going to say "SYNTHESIZERRRRRR!!!" just like he does @ 1:02

If only carson had the MY ASS IS BLEEDING emoticon

He's a pretty good guitarist.
The Carson shit was fucking lame.

Either that or Carson's main booker was on holiday that week. seriously, i just don't get it

I am a man of extremely limited talents on a keyboard and even less gifted on guitar, but I suspect I might have done a better job playing Axel F than he did.
