Mark Fisher

We were saddened by the tragic news of Mark Fisher’s death this weekend. Everyone at Ghost Box owes a huge debt to Mark’s support and inspirational writing. When we first began he was instrumental in bringing our label to the attention of a wider audience through his k-punk blog. He always had a clear understanding of what we are about and was able to articulate it better than us or anyone else.  Amongst other things  it was Mark that introduced us to John Foxx.
A great thinker and an important cultural voice that has been tragically silenced at a time when such remarkable minds are needed more than ever. Our thoughts are with his family.
Mark’s new book The Weird and The Eerie was published in December by Repeater Books.
There’s a memorial fund here in aid of Mark’s family.

The latest in a series of singles featuring regular Ghost Box artists, special guests and one off projects. This time it’s a collaboration between the label founder Jim Jupp’s band, Belbury Poly and Ian Hodgson’s marvellous Moon Wiring Club. The artists’ have very different approaches to their work, but share similar reference points and a common sensibility. Their ideas complement each other perfectly in these two weirdly baroque, electronic miniatures.

Released on 17th February on download or on a super heavyweight  vinyl, with a beautiful Julian House designed sleeve.  (Pre-orders open in late January)

The paper is 100% cotton, elemental chlorine free (ECF), carbon neutral, and fully recyclable. Cotton paper does not yellow in the way that wood-based paper does and is therefore ideal for archival and display purposes. The 4-colour process inks are vegetable oil-based and biodegradable. The inks also have a water-based sealer varnish applied to help “fix” the ink in the paper.

Printed by Calverts, a graphic design and print co-operative formed in 1977 and based in the East End of London. The business is managed democratically through consensus and all workers are paid equally.

Ghost Box is a record label for a group of artists exploring the misremembered musical history of a parallel world.

“Buying one of its releases feels like stepping into another world” The Guardian

“...what's most impressive about Ghost Box is the aesthetic consistency and sheer quality of the material, recalling the heydays of labels such as Factory, 4AD and Warp.” Quietus

“...some of the most delightful electronica to arise in Britain since Aphex Twin, the Black Dog and Global Communication.” The Sunday Times
