About this item
Re-release of the classic Ghost Outfit album at a bargain price following the release of their second album last year..
Debut album by Manchester duo Ghost Outfit and the first full length release from the SWAYS label. Whilst other duos/ bands strive for 'stripped back' Ghost Outfit opt for layers of wild guitar ('Killuhs'), industrial drum rhythms ('Waste'), relentless grooves ('Kids'), restless drones ('Lexicon') and innovative ambience (' '). It's a record of schizo-fi intensity, straddling the line between melancholia and euphoria, melodic pop and teeth-grinding white noise.
Combining an appreciation for late 80s- early 90s bands The Cure, My Bloody Valentine, Throbbing Gristle and Sonic Youth, with the modern omnivorous approach of bands such as No Age or Deerhunter the unexpected, unconventional quality of the album is only further enhanced.
Rivalling MBV's sheer explosive rawness-all static hiss, blown amps and shotgun drumming" - NME.
"an album of sheer unrelenting force. It skyrockets from the off" - thisisfakediy.
Andy says: Doomy, heavy, but always in an inspiring way, this is a clever, powerful debut that could well take Ghost Outfit far.
