Streetmark - Dreams


STREETMARK the band was founded 1968 in Düsseldorf. By 1977 they released only their second record “Eileen” with Wolfgang Riechmann, a solo recording artist, who had joined the band on vocals and keyboards. Tragically he was murdered in 1978, before the release of his own solo record “Wunderbar”. Sky re-released “Eileen” in 1979 with the new title “Wolfgang Riechmann and Streetmark” with one bonus track. Later on the record was renamed “Dreams”. The beautiful Wolfgang Riechmann track “Himmelblau”  was recently featured on the Golden Apples in Mark Davies vs. Krautrock

Golden Apples Hauntology Special 2016 crop edit (Medium)



Somewhere between the stars and the gutter, and somewhere between the height of inflated expectations and the trough of disillusionment are to be found the wonderful often passed-over musical genres that deserve to be explored further. The Golden Apples of the Sun Explorations Series No 1 – Hauntology.

Claude says…

“…By way of a brief introduction let me just say I think Hauntology is a rich and rewarding musical and visual aesthetic but one that can be done really badly – you know a bus-ride of nostalgia and electronics – full of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, British public information films of the 1970s, eerie soundtracks, concretism, and brutalist architectural imagery – well there certainly is some of that but hopefully a little bit more such as some crucial reference points and an incredible live track from Broadcast, some drum and bass, and 80s band  Japan? …so lets begin…”
