New Ghost Box T-Shirt, screen printed white logo on “tweed” grey in the Ghost Box shop now.
The Ghost Box black and Amber T-Shirts have also been re-stocked.
Exploring darker territory than 2012’s more pastoral As The Crow Flies, The Advisory Circle hint at a Wyndham-esque science fiction story, where bucolic English scenery is being manipulated and maybe even artificially generated by bizarre multi-dimensional computer technology.
Jon Brooks’ strong sense of melody and composition is still evident as is his renowned sound design and production skill. All of which make this a rich and rewarding experience.
The CD and LP will come lavishly packaged with artwork by Julian House based on the original concepts for the music. The 180gm LP will come with a free download code, and the download and CD versions include three bonus tracks.
It’ll be released on 5th December and will be available to pre-order in the Ghost Box shop from 12th November.
Shapwick sold out of its first run of 110 overnight, so if you missed out the first time round, now is your chance to get it again, not the handmade CD unfortunately but this time its on Vinyl (with a free download code inside) and its in the Ghost Box shop right now. Once again though its only a limited edition.
Shapwick was inspired by a night drive through the countryside of England’s West Country and is in similar territory to the Advisory Circle’s melodic and melancholy, rustic electronics but taking in more elements of acoustic instrumentation and found sound. A perfectly self contained mood piece and as elegantly produced as any Brooks project.
There are two A2 generic BYC posters and an A3 poster designed for our recent Youth Club event in Glasgow. All three are printed on luxuriously heavy 200gsm paper. These are only available on line in the Ghost Box shop.
