Ghost Town is a new band/collaboration between drummer Bryan Shaw, singer/pianist Mark Beesley and guitarist/singer/producer Jed Town. Town’s many monikers include the mighty Fetus Productions – but this pioneer of Kiwi-flavoured post-punk and electronica/noise/performance-art is here in a relaxed country/ish mode – his love of Beatles melodies to the fore. It’s a relaxed-sounding set of tunes but the focus is razor-sharp. John Lennon is clearly a hero and the opening brace of songs give that obvious nod, but also, it’s about people influenced by Lennon too – I hear Elvis Costello in the cover of David Wiffen’s Driving Wheel and it’s to Warren Zevon by way of Daniel Johnston for the gorgeous closer, So Sweet.
