Demons of Gyrophonia are pleased to announce a small format change. From now on, no more avant garde improv--just electronic Springsteen covers.

I'm sure everyone will be thrilled and proud of us for this wonderful shift in genre.

Timbill: Organ, Lead Vocals
Tréteque: Yamaha Q-Chord, Background Vocals
Pheatherwäit: Casio PT-80

"thught" is, of course, Old English. It means "My postillion has been struck by lightning".

When you're in a group who executes so many poorly-thought-out ideas, it's important to keep that output in the hands of an individual you can trust to keep said ideas from being unleashed on anyone outside the group responsible for the atrocities in question.

askmeaboutLOOM is no such individual.

Love that Q-Chord.

Love that Q-Chord.

It certainly is an impressive piece of crap. In case anyone is curious, or cares, this is a q-chord. Oh, and it's actually Suzuki, not Yamaha. My mistake.

Not nearly as big of a mistake as someone actually paying money for one, though...

::sigh::...actually linking is a good thing. To make up for it, here's a link to the worst video ever.

Okay, time to confess. This...thing was actually recorded in September, when we were testing our webcasting software. Several of man vs sun's coworkers got on to the webcast to help out, and give us feedback. They kept requesting covers by Billy Joel, Springsteen, and crap like that. Finally, we caved, and gave them the worst thing ever.

Well, second worst, after the original version of this song...
