Silver Apples - Silver Apples/Contact
The tremendously influential duo Silver Apples were formed in 1967 and consisted of crazily creative percussionist Danny Taylor and the mighty Simeon, vocalist and player of the Simeon Machine,described by himself as:
"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."
Pulses, drones, hums, repetition, a huge drumset with strange tunings, and timeless music.
