Bruce Haack

The first record I heard by Bruce Haack sent shivers up my spine. Maybe it was the strange electronically treated voices or the homemade instruments or the fact the record was about Lucifer's banishment from heaven which made me feel so uneasy but it definitely left an impression. The record was called "Electronic Lucifer" and I constantly wonder who bought this record when it came out in 1971. Mr. Haack also made some rather strange and wonderful kids records. The above clip is of Bruce Haack on Mister Rogers' Neighborhood with Esther Nelson. What exactly the strange instrument he's playing in this footage we may never know.
