Hungry Ghost

Hungry Ghost, a Portland supergroup of obscure ’90s indie rockers, was born of decades long friendships and mutual admiration. Stewed and simmered in the cauldrons of Olympia post-punk, Portland experimentalism, and New Mexican trash-garage, Hungry Ghost is Sara Lund (Unwound, Corin Tucker Band) on drums, Andrew Price (Irving Klaw Trio) on guitar, and the Lorca Wood attack (The Drags) on bass.

Hungry Ghost, a Portland supergroup of obscure ’90s indie rockers, was born of decades long friendships and mutual admiration. Stewed and simmered in the cauldrons of Olympia post-punk, Portland experimentalism, and New Mexican trash-garage, Hungry Ghost is Sara Lund (Unwound, Corin Tucker Band) on drums, Andrew Price (Irving Klaw Trio) on guitar, and the Lorca Wood attack (The Drags) on bass. Masterfully produced by PacNW indie rock legend Sam Coomes (Quasi, Heatmiser, Elliot Smith, Pink Mountain, Crock, etc), who also contributes guest keyboards on the album, these recordings manage to capture the focused, gritty edge and hypnotic raw power of the band’s live performances. In addition to the aforementioned bands, nods are given to influencers as far and wide as Led Zeppelin, Erkin Koray, Alice Coltrane, The Groundhogs, The Staple Singers, John Fahey, Black Sabbath, Pussy Galore, Nick Drake, The Kinks, X, Joy Division, The Gories, desert blues, and African Psychedelia of the ’60s and ’70s. “You can tell (or at least I can tell) when a band is playing together for the joy of it, for the love of rocking; where all other aspirations are secondary at best, where you never feel for a second that the band is trying to put one over on you. Hungry Ghost! This music is spare, honed down to essentials – there is no faking it at this level. « hide
