"Silver Apples" by Silver Apples (1968)
Silver Apples "Silver Apples"  1968 (USA)
Silver Apples was one of the most unique and original groups of the 1960's.  Simeon Coxe III (who goes by only his first name) sang in a strange falsetto and twiddled the knobs on a homemade electronic musical device known as "The Simeon Machine", while Danny Taylor  played hypnotic math patterns on an oversized drum kit.  Remarkably, their debut album did reasonably well for an underground group, selling better than contemporaries like the Velvet Underground and Stooges.  A CD reissue of both 1960's Silver Apples albums in the mid-1990's led to a reunion and new music from Simeon.  But sadly in 1999 Simeon was in a traffic accident from which he has never fully recovered (effecting his ability to play music, though that hasn't stopped him), and Danny Taylor passed away in 2005.  Simeon's official Silver Apples website.
