Spacedog song feat. robot, theremin and Nipkow disk

May 30, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Spacedog’s homage to Stooky Bill, ventriloquial sidekick of John Logie-Baird who appeared on the second ever television image, c1925. Baird was the inventor of an early, mechanical television apparatus that was tested at Alexander Palace, London.

This song features Spacedog’s own Stooky-like Hugo, a 1930s vent doll who was rescued from the attic of a dead magician.
