Incubate – Thema – Silver Apples special
In the Thema episode on Sunday 11 September at 21:00 attention for the Silver Apples. Their innovative albums from the end of the 60’s, plus recent work from their legacy. During the forthcoming Incubate festival in Tilburg Silver Apples are playing on the same day at the Incubate festival in Tilburg.
The influence of the American sixties psychedelic band Silver Apples can barely be overestimated. The impact of these pioneering elektrorock formation around keyboard player/lead singer Simeon and drummer Danny Taylor are becoming clearer day by day. After Taylor’s death Simeon is keeping the legacy of Silver Apples alive. During the forthcoming Incubate festival in Tilburg Silver Apples are playing on the final day 11th September. The combination of repetitive synthesizer patterns, echoing vocals and tight percussion struck gold and is still influential. In the past decades experimental pop acts such as Stereolab, Caribou, Portishead, Sonic Boom and Cavern of Anti-Matter have picked up some silver apples.
