Hmm....anyone else who notice a certain similarity? ;) Maybe it´s just me, but there is a creepy, uncanny resemblance in the eyes and the diminishing hairline

I remember reading in an old interview that Simon credited a fraction of his amazing talent to his granddad, who was a composer. So I guess this is where the "Posford touch" had its origins.

 

The man in the first picture, George Posford, was indeed British. Having been born in 1906 makes him old enough to be Hallucinogen´s grampa. I wonder if old Posford´s music was just as twisted. Maybe Gamma Goblins was originally conceived back in the early 30s, played on cello :) After all, it IS best known as "Part 2"...

Nuts :angry: Dead link on the 2nd pic. Do a picture search on Google for "simon posford hallucinogen" - it´s the 2nd pic on the list from top left. The resemblance is striking.

 

So you think George has the best hair, Abasio? :) Maybe we should do a poll...

Yeah, well.... I´m an expert in.. Hallucinogenology ;)

 

Then again, it might be a crazy-ass coincidence <_<

Have you met radi yet?

I thought he's the "expert" in Hallucinogenology. :lol:

Maybe I should listen to some of George Posford´s work... Maybe sonic similarities will appear. I doubt he was able to work with tweaking, plugins and DMT back then, but still...

Well, I think he used people as different tracks on his AAW (Acoustic Audio Workstation) :lol::blink:
