Biography

New York City, New York, United States (1967 – 1970, 1996 – 1999, 2006 – present)

Silver Apples was an / duo which formed in 1967 in New York City, New York, United States. They originally consisted of Simeon Coxe III (who played a custom home-made synthesizer known as the “Simeon”) and Danny Taylor (drums). The duo split in 1970. The group was reformed in 1996 by Simeon and new drummer Xian Hawkins. Danny Taylor returned to the band in 1998 and the band toured as a trio until 1999 when Simeon was injured in a car accident. The band returned to making music in 2006, but without Taylor, who died in 2005.

Contrasting the flowery psychedelic rock music of the late-1960s, the -based Silver Apples created an sound based on little more than a homemade synthesizer (named the Simeon after their lead singer - Simeon) and an extensive drumkit, originally played by Dan Taylor. They reformed in the 1990s, making new records and playing live again.

Silver Apples were one of the first groups to employ music techniques extensively within a idiom, and their minimalistic style, with its pulsing, driving beat and frequently discordant modality, anticipated not only the experimental electronic music and of the 1970’s, but music and of the 1990s as well.

    на мой взгляд, совершенно не круто, как и Suicide, впрочем. [3]

    Rewelacyjny team. To połączenie intelektualnych eksperymentów z kontrkulturowym buntem jest boskie. Goście wyprzedzili świat o dekadę.

    на мой взгляд, совершенно не круто.[2], как и Suicide, впрочем. Вот послушаешь- и не говно, кажется. А зачем слушать второй раз- непонятно. И если выводить одно из другого и т. д., то получается говном.

    на мой взгляд, совершенно не круто. настоящими революционерами в звуке были все же suicide, а это вполне себе хипповское музло

    I wonder if 'Velvet Cave' is a euphemism?
