Mop Tops in Action #49


Paul McCartney fiddles around with an ancestor of the keytar, The Tubon, backstage at a gig in Germany.

For the curious, here's a clip of the Swedish-built instrument in action, used by Scandinavian musical comedy act Hasse & Tage, on the song What the Hell Are They Doing in the Bank After Three O'Clock?

And I've checked with a couple of Beatles experts who say The Tubon never made it onto a Beatles recording. Maybe something by Wings?

Is that Swedish song a cover of Lonnie Donegan's 'Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavour (On the Bedpost Overnight?)'?

Well spotted, Spiracle! I was thinking the same thing. Similar melody, to be sure, but the song is apparently a satire complaining about banks closing early.
