he didn;t invent the Theremin some Russian bloke called Theremin did in the 20's.

EDIT http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theremin , looks like it was 1919

Actually Leon Theremin did that. Just after World War One.

It was featuring in the film soundtracks of Bernard Herrman (The Day The Earth Stood Still) before Moog was constructing his theremin kit.

Robert Moog developed his ideas for an electronic instrument by starting out in 1961 building and selling Theremin kits and absorbing ideas about transistorised modular synthesisers from the German designer Harald Bode.

Portishead gave the wacky gizmo a new lease of life with 'Dummy' in the 90s.

I like the theramine. I hate its (what can only be described as) abuse in Good Vibrations!

Thanks to Roddy Doyle, 'The Commitments' and a Roman Catholic upbringing for that prose fragment.

A good healthy swear word is nothing to be ashamed of.


Thanks to the Dutch for a very useful expletive.

And for the crap and poppycock too.
