Silver Apples / Simeon Coxe

Silver Apples / Simeon Coxe
Country
United States
Bio / info
Silver Apples formed in New York in 1967 and comprised percussionist Danny Taylor and lead vocalist Simeon Coxe, a bizarre figure who played an instrument also dubbed the Simeon, which (according to notes on the duo's self-titled 1968 debut LP) consisted of "nine audio oscillators and eighty-six manual controls... The lead and rhythm oscillators are played with the hands, elbows and knees and the bass oscillators are played with the feet." Although the utterly noncommercial record — an ingenious cacophony of beeps, buzzes and beats — sold poorly, the Silver Apples resurfaced a year later with their sophomore effort, Contact, another far-flung outing which fared no better than its predecessor.
