This dead-on send-up of British educational programming takes a look at the world of music and music-making, from that music you young people like so much (“the Bensons, or the Ombudsman”) to the “Harrington 1200″ music synth shown here, which you’ve probably never seen “because it costs almost a thousand pounds.” (Boy, would that you could get a Harrington for so little. Circuit benders and vintage synth collectors recently drove up the price to almost $50,000 on eBay.)


Enjoy!

    haha, got some interesting screencaps from that one. (patario? grotzart? the student? the "music element"?)

    The second season of LAY brought a change of format (to a half-hour 80s 'world of tomorrow' type of show) and another great music episode.

    The web module for the episode even includes a simplified Mini-Trelm 'Green-key' 800 synthesizer!
