Dead Ghosts 'Dead Ghosts'
Florida's Dying how I love you!! Following a slew of singles and a live set of recordings which made it from tape to 12", 'Dead Ghosts' is the first full length album from the Vancouver band. Mike, Mo and Bryan started out playing in Trap Door together and then moved on to form Dead Ghosts. Forth member Drew was recruited after he responded to an ad on craigslist for anyone 'into 60s garage rock'. The group also use the same person for nearly all of their art work, Seattle artist Carlos Ruiz. Thus far, the band have played shows alongside Nobunny, Box Elders, Hunx and His Punx, Personal and the Pizzas and BBQ Show if that helps give a gist of where Dead Ghosts fits in. 'Dead Ghosts' hits jangly DIY Lo-Fi pleasure centres doing something so right with what could easily be done wrong. Their trashy 60's influenced garage rock has a sense of being played live on the LP, striking like a bolt from the blue 'Dead Ghosts' is an irresistible party stomper from start to finish,
