"Bohemian Rhapsody" by The Thurston Lava Tube

This was originally a hit for Queen in 1975. It's also the only single to be the UK Christmas number one twice (1975 and 1991).

The tube

The Thurston Lava Tube are:

Alan Jenkins - guitar,

Blodwyn P. Teabag - organ (and percussion on this tune),

Marshall Cavendish - bass guitar and

Mat Bartram - drums

THREE hundred, it's a Vox Continental THREE hundred

The organ on the main parts of this tune is the Vox Continental 300

Nobody knows what all these buttons do.

The (previously) operatic middle section was recorded entirely on the strange and inscrutable Elka X-705

And if you want any soup...

You didn't think we used samples did you?
