We're excited to announce we're playing a very special show at The Hawley Arms in Camden on December 15th. Come and celebrate the season with us and Winehouse's ghost who'll drink us all under the table, then levitate the table in appreciation of our new material. We tend to do this kind of thing each year, you know... celebrate Christmas. This one is going to be just as big, just as raucous and just as filled with Tom's barnet as those previous.
See you there!
Guitars Have Ghosts Live At The Monarch, Camden Town
In 2010 we played our first ever show for the first ever Geek Out' club night run by NME journalist Mark '0/10' Beaumont. It seems only right that we wave goodby to the fantastic fortnightly event in true geek-rock style.
Join us for our first show in a long time at The Monarch in Camden Town on Thursday October 3rd. We're very excited to unleash a bit of new material so hope to see you there!
Stage time 9pm
Guitars Have Ghosts - Inspiring Albums Part 1
While we get ready for a busy autumn, we've each hit our personal record collections and put together a list of our most treasured and inspiring albums. It's been hard but we've just about decided on 'The Ones'. Tom kicks it off below, more to come soon!
Abbey Road – The Beatles
I was pretty much breast-fed great music growing up; going through my parents LPs and spending many a happy hour listening to what I now recognise to be all time classic albums. I was therefore, already fluent in all things Beatles by the time I first ‘discovered’ this record for myself.
It was then, and still remains such a treat for me to sit down and really listen to Abbey Road – it encompasses just about every emotion possible to convey in music, and allows us as listeners an insight in to each member of the band through the many varied styles of song on offer.
From the opening bars of Come Together to the epic I Want You (She’s So Heavy) , the beautiful melancholy of You Never Give Me Your Money and the amazing medley culminating in the pure euphoric joy of Carry That Weight – this album has had its hooks in me from the very first listen and remains my favourite Beatles album.
This is the album that taught me about what it means to be in a band, how to write songs and sing in harmony and ultimately turned me on to music as a way of life.
