Graeme Miller & Steve Shill 'The Moomins' (Finders Keepers)

Like many kids’ shows of its era, The Moomins was occult, dark, curious and druggy – but really quite alarmingly so. Among the new age flutes and naive Casio keys on this never-before-released sountrack are dark wave basslines and paranoid vocal chants that, in the dark, would freak you the fuck out. Worldly lullabies such as ‘Woodland Band’ and sci-fi passages such as ‘Most Unusual’ wouldn’t sound out of place on an experimental NTS radio show, while ‘Midwinter Rites’ is the sound of a hellish bad trip. Growing up watching this, it’s no wonder we all ended up in dark rooms marching to repetitive beats. Kristan J Caryl
