Thought inspired by the "Godzilla" thread.

Who else would buy an EHX 9-series pedal that sounded like the old Godzilla/Rodan/Mothra soundtracks, by the Toho Orchestra? Nothing else sounded quite like those, except maybe a scratchy Mellotron tape.

I would be SO on that!

I have a file in my ReacTable app where I recreated Gidorah's howl.

At the right moment, that would be brilliant.

I'd use mine with a purposeful grimace while I made a terrible sound.

Lurch around the stage, crashing into dummy Amp stacks . . .

Actually, I managed to develop a pretty good Godzilla impression in high school. Not only could I do a decent version of the roar, and I had the stance down pat, I also- unbeknownst to my audiences- did not swallow the swig of water I took before starting the impression.

So after pantomiming my stomp-walk through Tokyo, I'd roar...then airily spit the water out from left to right, then back.

First guy who saw it fell off the truck, laughing.

I'm envisioning a GWAR-like band, consisting entirely of people in classic Kaiju costumes: Godzilla on Guitar (power chords only), Gamera on Drums - I figure he'd play his own shell, like a bunch of Electronic Drum Pads - Rodan on Bass and King Gidorah on Vocals, with all three heads harmonizing! Not sure what Instrument would work for Mothra - Theremin, maybe - but the little fairy women could do backing Vocals. Yeah, I'm there.

I'm wit'cha!

As for my "performances", they were just me messing around while hangin' with my buddies- nothing on stage, just impromptu stuff.

Well, Godzilla SURELY deserves a tribute, too, at least as much as a lot of others do....

+1 Winston, good stuff! For Mothra I would go with some kind of wind generator to catch the sound of his wings flapping as he passes over the crowd! And add a screech or two LOL! evil
