(7") Electric Cowbell ECR 007, 2010-12-06

Amazing Ghost, from the fertile music scene of Richmond, Virginia, includes members of Bio Ritmo, Fight The Big Bull, and The Great White Jenkins, which is a strong testament to their impressive musical backgrounds. They sound like an assimilation of Gary Numan / Ultravox / Flying Lizards’ swirling keyboard embellishments, 'nothing but a party' late70s / early 80s hip hop sensibilities, and 21st century lido shuffling. They are downright impossible to resist, as evidenced by their catchy-as-hell debut 45. On I Gettupa, vocalist / bassist/bandleader Eddie Prendergast employs the everyman spoken / sung dynamics of punk poet John Cooper Clarke, channeling Million Dollar Legs by the Outlaw Four as keyboardists Bob Miller and Toby Whitaker prolong the unbridled party anthem with looping, non-linear sonic support. Tiny Raindropz ventures into the usually insipid realm of 1980s balladry and ever-so-subtly turns John Hughes’s cinematic heartstring pulling into a slightly funky, tongue-firmly-planted-in-cheek homage to tender moments. As with virtually everything they do, these tunes will haunt you long after the record has ended.
