The Quietus | Features | Magical Unrealism: Julian House Of Focus Group Interviewed

The Quietus | Features | Magical Unrealism: Julian House Of Focus Group Interviewed | music journalism | Scoop.it

'Musically, Ghost Box is like a TARDIS rattling its way through through previously unexplored parallels, leaking out transmissions from bands and artists who may or may not actually exist in the real world. Those odd ensembles – which include House’s own Focus Group and Jupp’s Belbury Poly – make sounds that are less timeless and more out of time. You know they fit somewhere, it’s just impossible to put a finger on exactly where.' - Robin Turner

Jason Simpson's insight:

julian house, the power behind the ghost box throne, is the man. he makes music as the focus group, he does their graphic design. he is a wizard.
