Matt Peach is trying to fund his next The Stone Tapes album on Kickstarter, not sure if he'll make it, but a vinyl copy would be sweet indeed.

I ordered the Scarfolk hardcover book from Amazon recently, didn't know they actually put out a physical tome, but looking forward to reading it with a nice vape and maybe a coffee.

the thing about the Anglo-Saxon concept of "Weird/Wyrd" is that A) its lost part of its original meaning (fate/destiny....) & B) it replaced the olde indigenous pagan belief-systems across parts of Britain that had already been partially appropriated within an early christian framework.

 

Its never a surprise that if you dig metaphorically around a specific locational landmark across Britain & Eire, you inadvertently unlock the buried pagan/animist giants lurking underneath, Cornwall is a v good regional example with saints, deities & Neolithic/Bronze age monuments having retained a record in the collective memory of how people understood & re-interpreted these sites over many thousands of years

 

scuse the archaeotossology, thats why landscapes seem to be a key feature in a lot of this material, the folklore of a place & any degree of perceived dislocation from it

 

all historic constructs & Wicca's yoghurt weaving hasnt helped, but Alan Moore's Voice of the Fire is an immense creation.... plunges through all these horizons w/out the reliance on concept reference points stylized beyond the point of allusion tipping into inadvertent self-parody, thats what seems to emerge from a lot of Hauntology music & out-there freaky folklore tags in the current climate

 

more critically, the 70's tv sample range can only extend so far b4 it self-annihilates, compounded by the innate drive in language/journalism to try to encircle & define key cultural signifier(s)

 

scuse the waffle, vape done fry tie-dyed my hide

 

edit for the above, to show this isnt an anti-English tirade, can not recommend Robert MacFarlane's Landmarks book highly enough & worth every shekel:

prob already linked this oop, but Ossian Brown of Cyclobe/ex-Coil  did a mint book of photo collections of American Halloween costumes & traditions, prob overlooked as so much of the focus here is on stuff from the British Isles......foreword by none other than David Lynch....helloooooo

 

its one of the strangest books i've experienced because of the moods invoked by the imagery, not southern Gothic, but from across the US in the late 1800's and early 1900's, utterly spellbinding pun intended & will seep its eerie claws into your mind, this figure in particular lingers:

 

 

Haunted_0010_11.jpg

 

 

"weird" how olde world traditions collide with psychology during this period in the new-world, these days it seems to be more about a suppressed sexual eroticism that manifests in openly worn suspenders and large amounts of alcohol

couldnt edit 4 div

 

another theme are the Mummers, had an ex once whose folks were from Philadelphia and they always used to mention the Mummers parades in Philly on (i think) new year's day. Kinda past it over for a year or so and then caught parade photos/videos courtesy of said ex's granny who showed me what it was all about. Blam. Had to politely mention "these look awfully like certain folks traditions across Britain at various 'feast' days/nights" without pushing the pagan elements too fully to be dismissed.

 

from the city which produced Eagles fans and the atmospheres behind Eraserhead, this was another layer of wtf again

Not 'hauntology' as such, however defined, but I reckon big folk tripper Richard Dawson's new album would be of interest to people here:

 

 

 

Just ordered the CD, looking forward to it muchly.

have u experienced the original Stone Tapes, Ruben?

 

Jane Asher does her gingery best & its been mined for all kinds of reference points down thru the years, Andrew Liles did the sound design on a BBC remake recently but sound design aside its not got the acting dramatic heft of the original

 

 

check the audio in the opening moments of the opening scene here (plus the rest)

 

 

remake

Yup, got it ripped on the Apple TV, I thought the James Cargill audio drama should have gotten at least a digital release.

My earliest memories are those haunted 70's films. Im old so i got the tail end of the 70's . Salem's lot scared the shit out of me. And some other haunted film with a scarecrow but someone was in the outfit and he got shot up or something. Early memory.

public info spoof w/blood curdling threat to the nation's yoof, clearly surviving Jimmy Savile in the 70's wasnt enough

 

 


 

 

Just ordered the CD, looking forward to it muchly.

 

 

whenever i see the term "weaver/weave", that olde crusty/new-age traveler expression "yogurt-weaver" leaps out from all angles, haunted by crusty parlance

 

Dawson's 's got a very Gorky's Zygotic Mynci meets Martin Carthy/Norma Waterson meets The Incredible String Band kinda vibe going, the 2nd track is just this side of strange enough to flow sweetly

This isn't really hauntology-related at all but it seems a better fit to post it here than in the six-years-old Belbury Poly thread. Found this in a Radio Fenriz podcast and was struck by the thought that it sounds like what Belbury Poly would sound like if they'd somehow morphed into a metal band:

It's the wonderful creation of screenwriter Richard Littler who for the past few years has made a blog (and associated media) cataloging details about a fake town in the North West England called Scarfolk: https://scarfolk.blogspot.co.uk/

I bought a copy of his book with a picture drawn on a post-it note which he planted in various bookstores. Awesome.

bought Arcadia Brittanica to flesh out some of the local (League of Gentlemen nailed that term) pre-christian rituals/festivals

 

some utterly surreal costumes in among these lot, even if the Guardian misplaces English for British, reminded me a lot of the images & photos in Ossian Brown's "Haunted Air" text on US Halloween costumes & customs of yesteryear

^ Cracking stuff, think I'll procure that Ossian Brown book in time for Hallowe'en and all

 

I don't think I've mentioned this before: https://www.amazon.c...y/dp/054474652X

 

Excellent novel with a folk-horrorish vibe, draws on some of the traditions mentioned above, specifically the Pace Eggers:

Would recommend.

Haunted Air is unnerving, you get 1 or 2 portraits that are comedic that you can empathize with & then bosh, an otherness peaks out through that you can't un-see

 

hard to articulate, strange doesnt do them justice, how anyone effectively curated them is a tale in itself

 

foreword by David Lynch

 

if yer that way inclined & from another angle, Juliette Wood is a folklore academic & archeologist, she might be retired now but writes on these realms
