The Golden Apples of the Sun Radio Show

Radio Show – 10 July 2016 – Episode 277

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…”
