The Del-Rays are one of my favorite new bands thanks to the wonders of the internets, and of course, thanks to the most awesome youtuber alepdlc for capturing a bunch of their performances. The band includes Mike Deller, the Farfisist from the Budos Band and a few other members of the Daptone Records family and the fantastic Alba Ponce de Leon. I look forward to hearing more from The Del-Rays.
When was the last time there was 12 people at a Pink Floyd show? Yeah, probably when this video right here was filmed. The sound is ok, but the editing is spectacular! There’s even some wacky British dude talking about them at the end of the clip. He looks kind of familiar…
This one came in from my friend Bunny Day.
I love MCD forever. Here’s a song about iggy.
The Farfisa MicrOrgan was one of the earlier reed organs, all done up classy in a beautiful art deco style. Like most of the other Farfisa reed organs, it folds up nice into its own little carrying case, complete with legs and all. This one is up on ebay right now. Here is a description from the seller:
FARFISA MicrOrgan CHORD ORGAN in CASE. 100% complete & working. Made in Italy in the late 1950’s. This is a reed Organ with an Art deco design. Built into case like an old combo organ. Has detachable legs that store in the case. Excellent condition.
Well, this is a new approach. A truly nice human being, BasementLoadSound has scanned in, and made an HD video of the complete Farfisa Soundmaker Service Manual which includes all of the schematics. Here’s his description:
Very rare and cool 1979 Farfisa Soundmaker service manual (Italian and English). Maybe the only one all over the world 🙂 I did my best to scan the pages but you have to watch the video full screen and possibly in HD resolution. Hope Soundmaker owners will find this document useful.
