Using a computer as a musical instrument? Mindblowing. Well, it was in the 1970s, but they still had a go.

Also, turns out everyone from Mos Def to The Slits to The Flying Pickets heard it through the grapevine so I figured I’d bring them together… So much pleasant timbre and simple harmony going on.
