Apropos the recent discussion of "axe" referring to computers
or other "instruments" on which people "perform": I was just
flippping through my trusty Lester Bangs' _Psychotic Reactions_
and came across this, from _Creem_ in 1974:

"I lugged my axe--Smith-Corona, Mr. Advertiser!--into the
dressing room."
