• Janis Joplin, Jorma Kaukonen, and the Typewriter Tapes

    Yes, Virginia, there is more typewriter music. Here's a little bluesy moment for you thunkety-thunk typewriter fans and those who just love Janis. Perhaps there are a few of you out there who are both. Like to download a few songs? Click here and put The Typewriter Tapes on your Ipod. I'll bet Janis never dreamed such a thing was possible.

    Good Lord. I think I just resurrected my DJ voice.

    1. Janis and Jorma, huh? That's so cool...and the typewriters fit right in there, haha.

    2. Whoa...is this sweet or is it sweet?

      Sweeet. Not something I would ever have come up with in my wildest dreams, but I like it!

    3. I believe that's Jorma on the typewriter, although I've got a little sleuthing to do to find out exactly what kind.

      The Typewriter Orchestra's got nothing on this.

    4. I happen to be a big Janis Joplin fan, and a typewriter nerd, of course. But I didn't know about the typewriter tapes!

    5. I don't know if you're aware also that Brian Eno used a typewriter for a brief "percussion over solo" on "China, My China", the penultimate track on his _Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy)_ album.
