GHOST BOX FEATURE IN ELECTRONIC SOUND MAGAZINE

There’s a special feature on Ghost Box records in Electronic Sound magazine this month. Jim Jupp and Julian House talk about the history and background of the label as it marks its tenth anniversary with the new compilation In a Moment… Ghost Box.

GHOST BOX POSTERS AND FLYERS

It has been brought to our attention that some of the links to downloadable Ghost Box posters and flyers on this blog are no longer active on some older posts. It maybe worth pointing out that they are all still available to download, from this page buried deep within the labyrinth of the Ghost Box website.

GHOST BOX AT GREENMAN

Ghost Box will be providing a little parallel world afternoon ambience in The Talking Shop tent at the Greenman Festival  next week in the Brecon Beacons.

Label owners House and Jupp  (aka Focus Group and Belbury Poly), will be playing a selection of library music, soundtracks, weird folk, ancient electronics, kooky psych  and even some Ghost Box tunes and sound effects. Accompanied this year by a selection of archival and in house film clips.

Timings are fluid at the moment but you can expect to catch them on Friday from 2:00 to 2:30pm and on Saturday at 2:30 to 3:00pm (ish).

GHOST BOX IN ROME. 25 SETTEMBRE

http://www.istitutosvizzero.it/eventi/calendario/eventi-roma/popular-helveticalive

Next Thursday 25th September, Julian House and Jim Jupp of Ghost Box will be DJing and showing a special selection of Ghost Box films and imagery as part of a series of events in Rome’s Swiss Institute called Popular Helvetica.

The evening is called “Folk & Pop Sounds from the World”, and explores how a selection of contemporary record labels are repurposing and re-imagining folk and “world” music traditions in their own unique ways. As well as Ghost Box there’ll be a set from Switzerland’s Cyrill Schläpfer of CSR, and heading the bill is Alan Bishop of Sublime Frequencies. The evening will open with a live acoustic set  from an ensemble on traditional Swiss instruments lead by Cyrill Schläpfer.

Doors 17:30 and the ingresso is libero !
Tutti i dettagli in Italiano.

GHOST BOX T-SHIRTS, BADGES AND ARTWORK

There are two new T-Shirts over in the Ghost Box shop available right now. Both designed by Julian House, one is based on the artwork for The Focus Group’s Elektrik Karousel and the other is a new Ghost Box design based on the old 70s and 80s Granada TV ident.

 
Also available now is the Ghost Box Badge Pack B. Including Advisory Circle, Belbury Poly and Focus Group badges based on recent album art.
Finally there’s a very small quantity of high quality art prints remaining from last year’s Ghost Box exhibition and art sale in Glasgow’s Mono. Illustrating a variety of Belbury Youth Club activities, each 70x50cm print is signed and numbered by Julian House. In fact since these went on sale yesterday evening two of the three designs have already sold out, so you’ll need to act quickly to get one of the last copies remaining in the world. (The good people that run the Ghost Box shop strongly advise you opt for recorded delivery if ordering one of these.)
