1980s Glasgow indie act The Radio Ghosts have re-emerged with a new album, ‘Singularities’.
Recorded in Glasgow, Musselburgh and Brighton, and self-produced, the 17-track release is available on CD – with a 24-page booklet – as well as a download.
The quartet – Martin Cotter (guitar, vocals), Iain Bain (vocals, guitar), Paul Quinn (bass, vocals), and Craig Leslie (drums) – initially put out two releases: 1980’s debut three-track single ‘Say Hello To The World of Love!’, and its follow-up a couple of years later, the ‘Handfuls Of Everything’ EP.
Following support from John Peel and a flurry of gigs, the band eventually dissolved and turned up in other acts of the time – Martin Cotter started the Wee Cherubs, then the Bachelor Pad, bassist Paul Quinn formed a synth & bass duo called Bamboo Shoots, before moving to London to form A Tune A Day with fellow ex-Ghost Iain Bain.
There then followed a hiatus of almost 40 years before an album, ‘Boo!’, which, like all their other material from the past four decades, can be found, available to download, at radioghosts.bandcamp.com.
That recently-digitised back catalogue includes their 1980 7″ three-track single ‘Say Hello To The World of Love!’ and its follow-up, the ‘Handfuls Of Everything’ EP.
