I have some solo shows coming up this summer, so I figured why not release some new demos? I'll probably be playing these songs at said solo shows, so maybe by the time I visit you (if I'm coming yr way), these songs won't be so new. Personally, I am a fan of bands/solo performers playing new material at shows. However, it is usually more enjoyable to know the songs beforehand. Maybe I'm in the minority on this? I don't know.
Anyway, my goal with these demos, outside of turning them into sweet Black Bear Mute jams (the band I am presently playing in), is to make some proper recordings and attempt to convince an acoustic punk friend or two to release a split 7 inch or two. I think that would be real fucking neat.
Also, while I'm posting this to the Ghostwrite Bandcamp, I don't really claim the Ghostwrite moniker any longer. I'm simply going by Robby Lester for solo shows. I had one too many nervous breakdowns/shitty nights while grinding away as the Ghostwrite, and it is not something that I would like to revisit. Here's to a fresh start, hopefully.
ps. I'll still be playing a very select few Ghostwrite sing-a-long jams at shows. However, about 99% of the Ghostwrite songs will live on only in audio files, tapes, and CDs.
released 21 June 2014
Recorded in live takes at the FFD House in Braddock, Pennsylvania on June 7th, 14th, 21st, 2014.
