What a cow says when it's choking

The same company whose wide range of DVDs I mentioned in a previous post now threatens us with Moogfest 2006.

Featuring an incredible array of the world's leading keyboardists, Moogfest, the annual festival celebrating the groundbreaking achievements of maverick inventor Robert Moog and his namesake synthesizer, captures the spirit that altered the course of modern music for all time and has since become an integral part of our musical culture. Filmed live at New York's famed B.B. King Blues Club, this DVD features from some of it's greatest practitioners including Keith Emerson (The Nice, ELP), Jan Hammer (The Mahavishnu Orchestra, Jeff Beck), Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater), Bernie Worrell (P-Funk), Roger O'Donnell (The Cure), The Mahahavishnu Project and DJ Logic.

Mind you, I think Moog synths are fine, fun instruments. I wouldn't mind playing around with one . . . if there was no one else around to bother.

I'm not sure a 70-minute Moog-centric concert DVD is a good idea, but I suppose the public can decide.
