Hungry Invents the Typewriter!

Why was UK sucking up to Hungry in '37?

A different perspective on typewriter music: the selectric piano that my friends' art-rock band invented.

Hey, S., that's what crossed my mind when I saw this Pathe clip. Ernie Kovacs wrote a skit for his television program where office furniture and fixtures were choreographed to a soundtrack. This was in the early to mid 1950's.

Matt - The idea of hooking an IBM Selectric to a piano is inspired.

Hmm ... maybe I could use Hungarian ladies to write my comments instead of monkeys. Are they willing to work for peanuts?
