A ghost duo with haunted drum machine
Rock’n Roll, smoking six guns, revolution, death and sexy senioritas… The danish two piece rock act HOLA GHOST and their haunted drum machine release their second album “The Man They Couldn’t Hang”. The album will be out on US-Label Smelvis Records this fall!
The members are: Guitar and vox: Hola Pete 1 (ex. NEKROMANTIX and MAD SIN) Bass: J.B.J. Drums: Ghost 707.
HOLA GHOST is a two piece ROCK band, inspired by surf music, mexican folklore, dark disco, psychobilly, B-western movies and what else is out there worth listening to. Overdrive bass intwined with surf guitars and rock’n roll riffs in the face, while the vocal is singing, screaming and crooning its way through songs about B-movie heroes, howling wolves, revenge, hope, and love to alligator girls. On stage HOLA GHOST is a barrel of dynamite, egnited by a cigar butt. Dressed in sombreros, marriachi jackets, bullet belts and bandanas, the two urban guerillas are on the hunt for justice, beauty and ROCK’N ROLL! Driving the band along with psychotic flamencore rythms and pumping surf beats, the drum machine adds a strange disco flavour with its characteristic 1980’ ies sound and superhuman drum play. This makes HOLA GHOST sound like no other acts around!
Biography: HOLA GHOST was formed during the work with the soundtrack for LA bound artist Gris Grimlys’ debut movie “Cannibal Flesh Riot”. At this time the duo didn’t have a drummer, so when they saw a good offer on a drum machine in a pawnshop in LA, they went for it. The old Mexican owner had won the machine in a tequila-soaked poker game in Tijuana, and claimed it was haunted! While working with the first album the rythms started to seem colored by the machines Mexican origin. And when a drum solo was programmed, it was obvious that the drum machine had soul! The machine was named Ghost 707, Hola Ghost have since developed their own sound and show. With the insane drumsolo as one of the highlights the trio has played around the world.
The new album “The Man They Couldn’t Hang” is now out on US-label Smelvis Records.
