FHR Edinburgh: The Final Reveal

Untitled-2.jpg

To complete the great line-up at The Unseelie Court event at Edinburgh Summerhall, Folk Horror Revival are very proud to present ~

Headling our night of music are PYE CORNER AUDIO.
Pye Corner Audio is a British electronic music project by Martin Jenkins. Originally self-released, Vols 1 – 2 and Vols 3 – 4 of the Black Mill Tapes were released by Type records as TYPE107 and TYPE118. Sleep Games was released on Ghost Box.

Submerged rhythms and ectoplasmic electronics haunt the disused dance halls and concrete derelicts of Belbury.
It’s possible to detect echoes of John Carpenter, Italo-horror soundtracks and a kind of post rave meltdown in Martin Jenkins’ submerged disco and spectral electronics.

Completing our catalogue of talks at the day event is Murdo Eason of The Fife Psychogeographical Collective, who will be talking on Embedded in the Landscape: Psychogeography, Folk Horror and the Everyday.

Our next two announcements for The Unseelie Court are:
Folklore Tapes– an open-ended research project exploring the vernacular arcana of Great Britain and beyond; traversing the myths, mysteries, magic and strange phenomena of the old counties via abstracted musical reinterpretation and experimental visuals. The driving principle of the project is to bring the nation’s folk record to life, to rekindle interest in the treasure trove of traditional culture by finding new forms for its expression.They will be performing at the evening event.

 ❤ Happy Handfasting : the first FHR wedding ❤

20798998_10213596018515721_3259396814970924455_n

On behalf of all Revivalists and the FHR Administration Cabal, we would like to extend Congratulations and our Very Best Wishes to Kat and Matt Peach on their wedlock. This is (to our knowledge) the first Folk Horror Revival wedding. ❤

Kat and Matt first met on Facebook via the Folk Horror Revival group and in time their friendship blossomed to love across the ocean. Both Kat and Matt went on to become FHR Administrators and very valued contributors to our Wyrd Harvest Press books and our British Museum event. (You may have met them greeting guests and attendees.)

In addition to FHR and that loving business, Kat and Matt have worked together creatively within the music spheres as Wandering Eldar, The Stone Tapes and the force behind Hare’s Breath Records

Blessings and Best Wishes to you both.  ❤

If any other Revivalists have found love through our group, please let us know over at – www.facebook.com/groups/folkhorror/
