Perhaps a far more sedate and laid-back affair to what I generally post, but Gord’s Horse struck a chord in me today and perhaps was the serene escape I really needed but just hadn’t realised!?
San Franciscan 4-piece Cool Ghouls consists of members, Alex Fleshman, Pat McDonald, Pat Thomas and Ryan Wong. Classing themselves as a rock’n’roll band, this young outfit cites (according to their Facebook page) tall cans, 40’s, blunts, parties, guns and crime as influences!
Self-releasing an eight track cassette last year, the tour-only document entitled Gord’s Horse has since become available on Melodic and Empty Cellar Records. Fusing lo-fi country/psych rock with experimental flourishes, the band create a sound incorporating “acoustic guitar, mellotron, a drum loop, and other shit…!”
The album is now available to purchase/listen to and can be found here.
