Glenn Miller

You might think that Alton Glenn Miller disappeared from the radar in 1944, but we know better than that. He is, in fact, incarcerated in a coal bunker in Walsall and was dragged out to make some recordings for the Mellotron in exchange for his freedom. Being a lying shower of bastards we took the recordings anyway and threw him back in the coal bunker, where he languishes to this day, coming out only at night tethered to a tree by a chain, foraging for scraps of food.

This might sound like a pile of elderly cak largely because it actually is. In fact, this is the sound of Mellotron Brass with the saxes removed and clarinets stuck in their place. A bit like the way they do heart transplants, except a bit cheaper. And with less blood but more clarinets.
