This, my friends, is high-tech. The perfect machine for rock and roll, I say. "Bruce, you blithering idiot!" you might say "Even from you I never expected such a nonsensical statement! Banana Oil!"
Let me explain why this 1906 masterpiece is the perfect machine for rock and roll.
1. It is alcohol-fueled.
2. It is horrendously expensive.
3. It has lots of moving parts and dangerous processes.
4. It is FRIGGING LOUD and its volume control doesn't go to 12 or 32 or 100 or what have you, because it has no volume control. You fire this baby up and it's going to be as loud as it can be first time, every time and there's diddly you can do about it.
I think #4 alone qualifies it.
