WOTGODFORGOT & UBiK present:
Decades after their brief yet influential career first ground to a sudden and mysterious halt, the Silver Apples remain one of pop music's true enigmas: a surreal, almost unprecedented duo, their music explored interstellar drones and hums, pulsing rhythms and electronically-generated melodies years before similar ideas were adopted in the work of acolytes ranging from Suicide to Spacemen 3 to Laika.
The Silver Apples formed in New York in 1967 and comprised percussionist Danny Taylor and lead vocalist Simeon…who played an instrument also dubbed the Simeon, which consisted of "nine audio oscillators and eighty-six manual manual controls...The lead and rhythm oscillators are played with the hands, elbows and knees and the bass oscillators are played with the feet."
With Support from the Mighty
…and Flippant Quirksters
