what a rawkus KA sound. The vocals were awesome. Vedder like in their intensity but much cooler. Did you do the lead as well? Great stuff

Awesome vox on this. Rough but definitely works well. The guitars sound great. Very catchy tune you have here.

Follows what I wrote on a thread related to a previous Ghostmaker upload.

Not me on vocals !

Yes, David "Flatch" Fletcher did all the guitar work.

"Ghostmaker were essentially what happened after Catch and then XL. "Flatch" remained on guitars, Bob McCormick replaced Ian McD on drums, Colin Campbell on fretless bass, and I pissed off until we/they found a replacement for me on vox although I hung around for a year or so during the auditioning process.

Billy Matthews was about our 90th 'interviewee' and he got the job straight away. Sensational stage/studio person but at the same time, the wildest person we ever met."

16 track
Great 90s feel, Pearl Jam with slightly more musicality. Intense compelling vocals. Did you write the song?

It sounds like it was transferred from a cassette tape? Too bad you can't go back in with the 16 Track. (All my early stuff was on 16 track too, and I remember that listening to the pore-mixed versions off the 16T was so powerful an that post-mix 2-tracks always seemed flat by comparison... I wished that other people could hear what was really on the original tape). Thanks for sharing these old gems. Where was the studio? Did you also play this live at gigs?

Background
@ Tobin,

Yes, Pearl Jam were a big influence at that time and obviously not just on us.

I was on the periphery of the band at that time and partook in some of these sessions (~ 6 tracks) but not this track.

Song was written by the Ghostmaker members but I don't know who exactly contributed and by how much. Billy (vocalist) certainly came up with the lyrics (hard to decipher).

Studio was a small one in an industrial estate in Paisley, outskirts of Glasgow, Scotland.

We sure did perform this one live.

Our copy would have been on standard cassette tape. I got a copy on CD yesterday and tweaked it a bit.

More uploads in this genre to follow =)
