Ghost Pal - God Save MCFK

Alexandre da Silva
Matthew Evans
Oliver Ignatius
Henry Kandel
Carson Moody
UPDATE: Ghost Pal has just released a free single, eight plus minute medley of "Will the Circle Be Unbroken/Time Tough  featuring Mama Coco’s Funky Kitchen All-Star Choir

Another excellent band from Mama Coco’s Funky Kitchen Collective, Brooklyn's Psychedelic Soul-Pop Ghost Pal is a fictional band. But not in a sort of Sgt. Pepper's/exotica "let's put on a play!" sort of way. I mean Ghost Pal literally doesn't exist. Let me put it this way: One night, Oliver Ignatius (previously of excellent combos Hysterics, Dirty Faces and Heat Lightning!) ate some bad frozen olive pizza and had a weird dream. At one point in the dream, between the alien invasion and the frozen shipwreck, he fell upon a teeming mass of what looked like buzzing, golden insects, massed together in percolating swells of movement, their vibrations at constant odds with one another, always threatening to become one and always breaking apart at the last minute. On closer inspection, the insects were just little bits of music, strange, beautiful music falling in and out of itself all over the place. When Oliver woke up, he called all his friends together and told them his dream. "We'll have to build an ark!," opined Josh.
Ghost Pal is a band of merry men who live inside the Mama Coco's studio. They take turns making noises and then record them.

You can summon Ghost Pal tonight at Mama Coco’s Funky Kitchen Seance #22 at Big Snow Buffalo Lodge 89 Varet Street Brooklyn, NY 11206 tonight June 14th with 'The All About', 'No Shoes', Hugh Trimble & The Engines, and Mothers.
