    Best Song Featuring a Didgerifukindoo!

    I hate these fuking things.



    20 odd years ago when I spent a year or so in Australia, whenever I saw some tourist trying to play this stupid piece of wood, well, I wanted to hurt them, just as they were hurting my earlobes, and generally insulting the world with their presence...

    Nontheless, perhaps this instrument has a place in modern music. Perhaps not...

    Do you know any great songs that feature a digeridoo. I can't imagine for one second that this will be either a long or a successful thread, but I'll kick it off:

    How do I post these pictures???

    The didgeridoo was invented by the aboriginals as a device to retrieve semen from deep in the bowels of another chap. One is, apparently, supposed to suck on it, not blow.

    Try this for size-



    From 1982 (and the cruddy video shows it!). Not strictly a didgeridoo song beyond the opening stanza, but important because it was probably the first of it's genre, as well as the first song to deal with abo land rights. A classic.


    Actually the didge can sound very good when integrated with a rock band. An actual aboriginal band (Goanna are white boys from Geelong) that makes a good sound by combining didge with guitar etc is Yothu Yindi- check 'em out.

    There was also an obscure band, not sure if you can even track 'em down these days, called Dr. Didge- they sounded pretty good to me, and as the name suggests plenty of drone from that didge.

    The secret of playing the didge is to be able to breathe in thru the nose, whilst simultaneously maintaining an unbroken breath out via the mouth. Not easy, but apparently once you pick this up it's quite easy to play. A bagpipe player would be a natural.

    I still think this is an early contender for worst thread of 2012.

    Here's the sort of fukwit I hate:



    This is less offensive and seems to be pure oral sex:

    How 'bout a bit of faggy Techno featuring the Didge (as it's known in muso circles)?

    You're welcome.

    A mate of mine used to play one really, really badly. Fucking terrible things.

    Need to jump forward to about the 4th minute for didgeridoo heaven. Not one of African Head Charge's best.

    The real Dr. Didge is Dr. Graham Wiggins, he's a Physicist, born in the US of a Brit father & Australian mother. Interesting bloke, and his band is still going strong-

    Graham Wiggins - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Incidentally, playing the didgeridoo is a natural way of curing sleep apnea- which at it's worst can be a life threatening condition.
