The Black Ghosts - Repetition Kills You

Who are the black ghosts?

The Black Ghosts' lament through their perverse, personal pop music. Theirs is a peculiarly British noir , where the divorcee next door dreams of nocturnal visitations from predatory incubi, and an awkward boy genius tinkers with forbidden science in the garden shed. Unmanned Casio keyboards left for dead in the loft burst into requiems of their own composition, attractive cousins are murdered for what they know, and an unspeakable horror lurks in the depths of the spare room.

You might be surprised to hear the new album from Simian's Simon Lord and The Wiseguys' Theo Keating, recording together as The Black Ghosts, spun in this melodramatic fashion. But both have some undeniably sinister credentials to back up The Black Ghosts ' tales of modern gothic romance.
