This vintage Polymoog promo film may just scare the **** out of you.
I don’t know if it’s the scary hand-held woodland footage, the cheesy horror-movie soundtrack, the woodland mimes (Shields & Yarnell?), the constant vuvuzela-esque hum, the diagonal knotty pine panelling, Mike Boddicker‘s awesome hair or the Polymoog’s 9 (nine!) presets.
Herbie Hancock, though, looks bad-ass as ever, like he could take on a bevy of ninjas with his left-hand alone.
The whole promo film is actually pretty awesome, both as a piece of electronic music history and as a window into the times.
