As The Black Ghosts, the duo of Simian’s Simon Lord and The Wiseguy’s Theo Keating combine sinister subject matter and moving arrangements to create masterfully perverse, personal pop music. After releasing five singles, with remixes from the likes of Switch, Playgroup, The Teenagers, Kissy Sell Out, Fake Blood, Sinden, and Boy 8-bit, The Black Ghosts are gearing up for their self-titled debut LP release.
Holy Ghost! have been the talk of the town for a while now, as part of the gigantic disco revival that is taking New York over at the moment (not that we're complaining, mind you). It seems like every cool new band's main references have shifted from the Velvet Underground and Joy Division to Donna Summer and Giorgio Moroder, which is quite a breath of much needed fresh air.
The Black Ghosts and Holy Ghost! will be joined by San Francisco’s own Ghosts on Tape, with a live PA performance that’s not to be missed. Additional support from blasthaus resident Shane King.
