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

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

Check Dymaxion too...
Eno's on land & obscure series (most obviously Jesus Blood/sinking of the titanic)
oh and shortwave radio generally....
i'd add the v/vm caretaker project
andrew peckler - strings and feedback
thomas koner stiuff
palace brothers earlier bits
also the first coco rosie album i reckon

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'...

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.
And less known: Inushini, kinda the Req of breakcore.
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
