unconventional musical "intruments"

went to an absolutely amazing show last thursday, took some shrooms with a bud, and the shit was off the hook.

although something really struck me as fucking weird - i noticed the girl from Sunset Rubdown using an "egg vibrator" on some cymbols and glockenspiel. it was cool, and made some nice harmonious ambient sounds, but i have never heard of anything like this before.

anyone else know of any bands who use things that are not made for music to make music?

heres a video of there last song from the show i went to. 40 seconds into it, you can see her working the vibrator on her glockenspiel (similar to a xylophone). and later at 4:29 into the video you can see the girl do the same thing...

even if you dont care, you should still watch the video as its an amazing band, an amazing song, and an amazing performence (and the vid quality is surprisingly good).

Dredg uses a lot of original instruments, you should check them out.

God appears, and God is light,
To those poor souls who dwell in night;
But does a human form display
To those who dwell in realms of day.
