When a popular TV personality makes their first appearance in your childhood nightmares
That gif is indeed terrifying. I'm guessing you already know this, but Honeycombe wrote a couple of strange novels. Dragon Under The Hill is more of a traditional horror novel, set on Lindisfarne, but Neither the Sea Nor the Sand is somewhat stranger. Made into a film with Susan Hampshire.
yes i can relate to the hauntology of past media from the 70s/ 80s, im about half your guy’s age it seems so i’ve never lived with that era the same way you have but im sure you’ve heard about the music genre of vaporwave which was an important part of my musical journey for myself. the use of old samples of tv and commercials from them had a very powerful effect on me, all the senses of disconnection/ longing etc. The instrument the mellotron also featured in a lot of the music i was into from this era as well which carries a similar sentiment, have you guys ever experimented with the mellotron? i feel it could pair well with your music
