Blue Ghost Blues’ is closer in style to label mates Diamond Terrifier, who recently released an equally challenging, but rewarding album in ËKill The Self That Wants To Kill The Self’ a few weeks ago. Those with an affinity for John Cage and Thurston Moore will definitely discover something enjoyable in this album; fans of John Lee Hooker and Gary Moore will not. It does, at times, sound like we’ve walked into the middle of a jam session. These are of course essential elements of the blues. All words by Colin McCracken.
Blue Ghost is got me, I feel myself sinkin' down. Black cat and a owl, come to keep my company. I been in this haunted house, for three long years today. Blue Ghost is got my shack surrounded, oh Lord, and I can’t get away. I feel cold arms around me, and ice lips upon my cheeks. I feel cold arms around me, ice lips upon my cheeks. My lover is dead, how plainly plain I can hear her speak. Oh Lonnie, oh Lonni. h Lonnie, sweet Lonnie That’s my bab. y windows begin rattlin', my doorknob is turnin' 'round an' 'round. My windows is rattlin', doorknob is turnin' 'round an' 'round

Haunted House & Loren Connors.
The blues has grown up a lot in the last ten years, since guitarist Andrew Burnes left New York for Georgia, bringing a de facto end to the powerful abstract blues of Haunted House. In the time since, a new generation - sometimes referred to as Freak Folk or New Weird America and spearheaded by Tom Carter, Jack Rose and Ben Chasny - has followed in the footsteps of Loren Connors, John Fahey and a handful of others who have long maintained that the blues is something more than 12 bars and a backbeat. Nor was Lonnie Johnson, whose song Haunted House gave the band its name. They all played it how they felt it. It wasn’t until the 1960s and the British blues revival (its champion, ironically perhaps, being Connors’ beloved Eric Clapton) that the blues was codified into its current formula. Haunted House is an unusual band.
