UK blog Folk Radio UK has an extensive interview about bulding things, stuff breaking down at concerts and freaked out customs officials who are suspicious about his sonic luggage:

One very early review said ‘The audience loved it when it worked, and even more when it didn’t work’. I try to remember that when anything goes wrong during a show. At airport security, I’ve been held up a few times. The Stringaling is the main culprit. It’s got a plastic chattering skull on it and a mini audio mixer inside which I made myself out of a small tea tin. You know, the kind of things that naturally would make airport security nervous.
