Silver Apples @ Empty Bottle, Chicago - Sep 8, 2007 (CRED)
Silver Apples

Silver Apples were a psychedelic electronic music duo from New York City composed of Simeon Coxe III, who performed as Simeon, on a primitive synthesizer of his own devising, and drummer Danny Taylor. The group was active between 1967 and 1969, before reforming in the mid 1990s. They were one of the first groups to employ electronic music techniques extensively within a rock idiom, and their minimalistic style, with its pulsing, driving beat and frequently discordant modality, anticipated not only the experimental electronic music and krautrock of the 1970s, but underground dance music and indie rock of the 1990s as well.

Danny Taylor passed away in 2005 (RIP), but Simeon is still at it. Now in the middle of their first tour since 1999 (and with a new drummer?), Silver Apples played Knitting Factory in NYC last night (Sep 12, 2007). Missed it? Luckily they're playing again in NYC tonight - TWICE. All remaining dates below....
