So I've heard that the "shugadugadugaduga" sound in You're Gonna Miss Me is made by an "electric jug"

What is it? Hows it work?

I think that the jug was basically blown like an instrument, although I'm unsure how he got different pitches, because from the photos it only seems to be one jug.

It's a ncie effect, though. I f*cking love the 13th floor elevators.

how does it work? Do you blow directly into the jug? or across the hole?

Where do you put the mic?

In that video, he's holding the mic over the jug's hole (that sounds dirty).

so, what is he doing? Is he saying "uga uga uga uga"? or is he blowing over the hole or what?

Argh, I hate that jug sound :p: I'd probably like them like 3x as much if there was no jug

really? i think that adds a lot more depth to the sound and makes it more interesting. i love the sound.
