Review of Study Series 06: Animation and Interpretation

Jonny Trunk 


Both the Ghost Box and Trunk imprints seek to rehabilitate quaint memories stowed away down the musty corridors of nostalgia, so it seems inevitable that the two camps would eventually hook up. Here, our very own Jonny Trunk captures some steamily bellowed puff and cheap arcade serenade on Le Train Fantome, with attendant ectoplasm entrée and bonus gloopy guff. More ominous is Cardboard Boxford, a Debordian sojourn through criminal streets swirling with intoxicating fog, laden with pensive anxiety. In the invisible distance a spook patrol serve up a succession of parps on their whistles, signalling swift pursuit of someone; possibly you.
