GHOST TOWN

Sky Is Falling

Ghost Recordings

$32.00

Legendary NZ post punk and electronic music pioneer Jed Town has a new band and a new album. GHOST TOWN is a collaboration between Jed Town (The Features, Fetus Productions, ICU ) and Mark Beesley ( Dean Savage) with Bryan Shaw on drums.

Sky Is Falling is their first full length album and was recorded at Dave Dobbyn’s Red Trolley Studios in Grey Lynn and Jed’s studio in Henderson. It was produced and mixed by Kerry Furlong, whose engineering credits include Pluto, Goodshirt, Neil Finn, Crowded House.

The album marks something of a musical departure for Town whose seminal 1980 post punk Features recordings were re-released on vinyl last year by Flying Nun. By contrast, Sky is Falling is a collection of songs about love, loss, longing, and regret served on a 70s rock ballad waterbed of post-Beatles melodies and late night am radio harmonies. The 8-track album includes a cover of David Wiffen’s Driving Wheel made famous in 1970 by Tom Rush.
