    Default Hauntology

    been really feeling the Hauntology excavations around here and would like to collate a "canon" (I think??? the nature of the subject suggests vagueness);

    BoC
    Ariel pink
    ghostbox label
    Radiophonic workshop
    Young marble giants
    Conet project-short wave numbers station thing on Irdial http://www.irdial.com/conet.htm
    Aki onda- cassette memories http://www.japanimprov.com/aonda/art...ianpenman.html

    And in the visual arts George Shaw http://www.wilkinsongallery.com/past...aw/images.html

    more ?

    For Hauntology-Gone-Pop (in an Avalanches stylee) check New Buffalo's first EP "About Last Night" - not so much the album though.

    that's a great record. and he did another one, where it was all samples of van halen made to sound all beautiful and dreamy, didn't he? which seems to fit v nicely with the whole 'hauntology thing'...

    oh, and the hauntology cannon NEEDS fennesz's stuff, esp. 'paint it black'.

    yes, that EP was called "My Love Is Rotten To The Core"...good call!

    Endless Summer, also by Fennesz, seems to really nail this budding genre...instant nostalgia for summers past, unrequited loves, that you may have experienced but probably just invented...

    Fennesz goes without saying alright.

    Is 'Chi-Vox' another contender? Seefeel with all the sweetness sucked out of them... their last and most ambient LP.

    On an informative front - it's spelt canon.

    I would like to propose Cassetteboy for the previously unknown comedy wing of memoradelia.

    Plastikman - Consumed
    Luomo - Vocalcity

    both of the above hear the city as reverberations, spectral whispers

    Al Bowlly - already haunting and haunted, now - courtesy Kubrick and Potter - the geist/ ghost of Thirties England

    Roxy - first two LPs (esp Bob Medley - which always puts me in mind of The Shining; Sea Breezes (like a BBC MR James adaptation as three minute love song); Beauty Queen (arctic-cold reverb hymn to glamour's ghost), For Your Pleasure (country house as Poe/Marienbad/Overlook hedonic haunt))

    Tricky - see esp Penman's masterly Tricknology piece for why (and also for why any dub worth its salt fits the bill)

    The long-forgotten Holger Hiller
