We're big fans of anybody who uses inappropriate technology to make music - see, for example, Tesla coils - which is why were pleased to discover that someone has marshalled a load of outdated computer hardware to produce a version of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody.

The song - recorded without any sampling or effects, using just the noises of the hardware - sees a Texas Instruments TI-99/4A computer from the early eighties impersonating Brian May's guitar, while an HP ScanJet 3c steps into Freddie Mercury's shoes.

Right, I know this has already been posted - I had submitted this as a news article before it had been posted, and for some reason today I got an e-mail saying my article had been posted. But it seems all the website did was post it on the forum under my username. :x
