@ Rockinbeerfest, Huntingdon
Saturday 21st August, 2004
guys were Scottish, and funny on stage, they had a good audience
going and kept them entertained so I thought why not, I will
interview The Ghosties. They were backstage and I just so
happened to be too, so we sat down, and after they made me
laugh I had to take it more seriously and managed to have
a good interview with them.
Jay Jay on drums and trumpet, Steven on bass and John
on guitar and vocals.
youre called The Ghosties, who thought of the name and
has it got a meaning?
"It has got a meaning; we use to be called Ghost
Riders but people ended up calling us The Ghosties so we ended
up changing it. There is a long long long story but to put
it short it comes from an old car club."
you have a website of your own?
" Yep, www.theghosties.co.uk
what kind of music do you play?
its a bit of jazz. Detroit house and a bit of funky
you have an album out at the moment?
have 2 EPs out at the moment, both of which you can buy on
our website for £3."
would you say is expected of these EPs?
"The first EP we have already sold over 2,000 copies,
selling them on our own. We are self-employed, doing this
as a business with over 80 gigs so far. As we do our gigs
we sell CDs as well. And we are currently trying to get our
CDs sold in record shops; we are looking into that now."
would you like to see yourself in about three years
"I would like to be on Top of the Pops."
why should people come and see you?
"Because we are great and well entertaining! We are the
hardest working band in Britain and thats a fact because
we have so many gigs we practise everyday and people can notice
that when we are on stage."
guys were funny to interview, and even though some of the
answers were a little strange, they do seem to be working
very hard for themselves. Keep working hard lads!
The Ghosties had a great sound and were really cool. To find
