For some reason, this reminds me a bit of Kid Schurke’s live performances on a Monotribe. I shared some of my favorites in this post Kid Schurke and the art of the Monotribe - Doc Pop's Weblog but here’s a good example:

My BF gave me a Bowie Stylophone for xmas.


Haven’t played with it much, but it’s quite entertaining.

This album is incredible! Well done!

We got that for Young Master Peas! I was going to get the classic, but couldn’t resist the Bowie edition when it was time to pull the trigger.

Bowie? Kraftwerk? Sadly, the first name that pops up in my head whenever I hear Stylophone is Rolf Harris, make of that what you will.
