  • Ondioline documentary on Radio 4

    Caught this while in the motor last night:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/radio...4/musicmachine

    A rather good documentary about George Jenny and the Ondioline - Jean Jacques Perrey is interviewed, and there's lots of music too. A must listen for all fans of early electronic wibbliness!

      I have to admit, listening to the documentary made me want one - they're impressive sounding things!

      Where did you find this ondioline, by the way, iueke? I'm intrigued!

        Good programme, but I could have been doing without that woman's whispery commentary - it was quite infuriating!

        I always like the sound of the Ondioline on Roger Roger's "Donald" track, as heard on the film Evoluon.

          You'll probably like Nino Nardini's 'Quack Track' then - I've got it on a Southern 78, I'll put it on one of those MDs I'll be doing for you!

              Not just me then! Nice to hear from Jean-Jacques Perrey - brought back happy memories of his 'gig' at the Jazz Cafe a few years ago.

                ... I saw JJP at Durham Town Hall in the late 90's... Strange where people show up some times, isn't it...

                ... he was really nice to us - chatted away for 30 minutes whilst signing records etc and posing for photos.

                Like a big old cuddly French grandad!
                If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

                  JJP is a living legend! One of the nicest people in this business.

                    I've got Naughty By Nature in my head rappin' "you down with JJP - yeah, you know me"
