I remember Lindisfarne's Ray Laidlaw playing a big bass drum with a rubber fish on TOTP (or maybe Whistle Test).

Yeah, sure you did.  :tongue:

 

Good crop of mushrooms that year was there?  ;)


No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

Flute - pretty much everything Jethro Tull ever recorded.

 
Ian Anderson played an instrument call a claghorn on, I think, Dharma For One on their debut album, This Was. If I remember correctly it was made from a bamboo flute body with a saxaphone mouthpiece taped to one end and a toy trumpet bell to the other.

Just found a video from the 40th anniversary tour (claghorn from 1:40 minutes)

Midipipes on loads of Runrig tracks, plus the Hampden Park Crowd on "Loch Lomond".

 

 

The Great Highland Pipes are used as a rock instrument in one Runrig track (the name of which escapes me at the moment).

Now you mention it, those kippers I had did smell a bit off.
