The Show: Over 40 Years Of Sleng Teng

And it only seems like yesterday we were busting out our Casiotone’s and aping Wayne Smith’s 1985 classic. The hard work had pretty much been done 3 or 4 years earlier when one of Okuda Hiroko’s preset rhythm patterns ( called “Rock”, would you believe?) was included on the MT-40 keyboard.

Bit late to the Train Guy party (as always with any meme) but do love Bob Mortimer’s uses of trains or living rooms as stages. Pretty sure it’s #capachoochoo but if you want to say #campachoochoo (but not too obnoxiously) in a public place that’s fine with us too.
