A Minute With Luna Ghost

Monday, August 24th, 2015

Before they kick off the most effect-pedal-heavy show of the year at the Corner in Melbourne with A Place to Bury Strangers and Flyying Colours on September 4, we spend a minute with Luna Ghost and find out what’s new.

Describe your music in five words or less.
Neo-psych fuzz-verb’n’roll .

What’s going on in the world of Luna Ghost?
Mostly finishing up tunes for our first album/trying to find money to record it.

What motivates you to make music?
Our lives revolve around music. We listen to music everyday, so why not make some too? And if someone likes it along the way then that’s a really good feeling.

What have been the high and low points of your musical experiences so far?
High points are always making that connection with people through music — if the crowd’s getting into it or someone lets you know they liked the show or an aspect of it, it means we’re at least doing something right. Playing in such a rich community of awesome musicians is something else. As for low points, as long as there are still venues supporting live music, there aren’t too many lows. We feel very blessed.

What music are you listening to at the moment?
Well definitely APTBS new album Transfixiation! There’s also The Soft Moon who are pretty sweet. Night Beats, The Black Ryder, The Laurels and heaps more.

If you were stranded on a desert island, which member of the band would get eaten first?
That’s a tough question. We couldn’t eat me [Sean] first because I’m all bones. We couldn’t eat Daniel because his diet is ice coffee and beer so he wouldn’t taste too great. That leaves us with Chris and Pete. I guess whoever loses a fight to the death between them.

Here’s an opportunity to bitch about something, whether music related or not. What really pisses you off?
Our bass player Daniel “BOG” Patterson has lately become so confident in himself, he now demands to be worshiped as a ‘God’. He’s obnoxious and out of control. I can’t remember the last time I saw him without an iced coffee in his hands.

You’re putting together your perfect gig featuring Australian artists. Who would you get to play and where? Feel free to include acts/DJs/bands/venues that no longer exist.
Icehouse would be playing “Great Southern Land” for hours on end inside the realisation of that painting Shane Warne has in his house. The VB would be flowing endlessly. Then all our favourite bands would get together and play “Get Free” by The Vines while Craig smokes all Warnie’s darts and trashes the place letterman style. Then, the theme song for “Hard Yakka” by Mike Brady would play at exactly midnight and we’d all get in utes Mad Max style and drive off into the desert together.

Luna Ghost join Flyying Colours in support of A Place to Bury Strangers at the Corner Hotel on Friday, September 4. Tickets on sale now through
