VIDEO CLIP: Rolf Harris & his Stylophone orchestra


Stylophone!

One of the most bizarre inventions of all time - the Stylophone - brought electronic music to the masses in 1970.

The Stylophone was invented by accident (how else?) and kids presenter Rolf Harris was the ideal face to launch the product.

It wasn’t just amateur musicians who warmed to the Stylophone; David Bowie wrote Space Oddity using one, and bands like Pulp still use them.
