On the show, Graham says, "It's the sound palette of this machine that made it a cut above the other drum machines." You can listen to the full clip on the Radio 4 website .
The TR-808 has influenced genres varying from Soul to Hip Hop to House and Electro.
Massey named his band after the iconic piece of kit, and the 808 has had songs written that namecheck the drum machine, over three decades after it was first released.
