Ghost Carriage Phantoms also play a show in Cardiff with John MOuse and Benjamin Mason at Gwdi Hw Cafe Bar on the 15th of May.
Ghost Carriage Phantoms are Merthyr Tydfil born songwriter Michael James Hall and fellow GCP collaborator Mark Estall, released in 2012 their first album ‘the boy lives’ was based around the conceit of making a record that would sound like* ‘the ghost of a robot child’.
Ghost Carriage Phantoms are currently working on the second GCP which promises a more US punk influenced sound, influenced by the likes of the Replacements and Husker DU. In the meantime they have released a cover of The Auteurs track ‘Bailed Out’ and a series of demos from the recording of their debut album.
“Like that an awful awful lot, that’s just ace.’*
*Adam Walton BBC Radio Wales*
“A standout dreamer of an album. Think ‘Xiu Xiu’ meets ‘Grandaddy.’*
*Miniature Music Press*
“Bedsit blues for our time, ‘Videotape’ has an air of fellow Welsh
compatriot Gruff Rhys – especially in his Neon Neon guise – about it.”
