Sillyboy’s Ghost Relatives – Five top tips for being successful in the music industry, coming from a small place.
Out now on the excellent Claremont 56 label Greek band Sillyboy’s Ghost Relatives latest release is stunning slice of Balearic rock. Label boss Paul ‘Mudd’ Murphy has gone to work on one of the band’s previously unreleased tracks In A Small Place creating something very special indeed. The track is a beautifully imagined discussion of the claustrophobic nature of living in a small town.
Rattling Floyd-esque guitar stabs stand atop a bluesy bass-line as bubbling synths and rhythm guitar lines drive the track on. The vocal is mesmerising, this is a track by a band at the peak of it’s musical output.
We spoke to the band who gave us their 5 tips on how to succeed coming from a small town and they also gave us a brilliant list of 5 inspiring tracks featuring music from John Martyn, Gerry Rafferty and The Beatles.
