Graeme Miller & Steve Shill
this fanastical 7” single features two tracks the 1983 UK broadcast version of ‘The Moomins’, consisting of homemade electronic and mechanical music heard exclusively via British TV speakers as an eerie backdrop for the Polish made stop-motion adaptation of the Finnish comic strip classic.
Ticking all the boxes that attract freak folk enthusiasts and synthusiasts alike, the combined efforts of Steve Shill and Graeme Miller deployed thumb pianos, backwards tape effects, wooden pipes and a Wasp synthesiser to replace the original 70s German jazz soundtrack. Housed in a very special custom-made felt backed 7” sleeve depicting original production stills, this special edition 7” single comprises a very Moomin take on ‘Silent Night’ backed with the more upbeat and aptly titled ‘Partytime’. Like the running lengths of the original episodes these rare specimens won’t stick around for long so act fast, relax, regress and rejoice for the return of the Moomin trolls.
