Ether Orchestra

The album “Ghoul Band” consists of Ether Orchestras hard work in up to three decrepit and mouldering basements. Band is Ryley Fogg on Rhodes, Jesse Beacom on Guitar, Scott Selfridge on Bass, and David Payne on Drums. Paul Butterfield plays bass on most of these tracks, however. Close sounding tracks recorded by Scott Selfridgein the dank basement where he lived with Judd Powel. Rest mixed or mastered by David Payne.

“All Your Brave Junkie Tomorrows” was recorded, composed, and produced during the last days of the first “Ether” epoch, as an alternative to the rambunctious hippie sounds of that band. It is performed prior, and by different people than “Ghoul Band”, particularly James Acton on drums and Thane St. Clair on bass, with Dave Chisolm on a trumpet track, but mostly it is a production piece by Riley Fogg.

Here’s a Youtube I found that has Paul playing bass plus dubbed music. But aren’t they handsome? Plus, just the right length.
