TV Ghost

Acquiring their name through the phenomenon of analog television frequency disturbances, Lafayette, Indiana’s TV Ghost started as purveyors of a particularly sludgy and punishing make of art-punk. The music group shaped in 2006, with vocalists/guitarists Tim Gick and Jimmy Frezza recruiting keyboardist Brahne Hoeft and drummer Jackson VanHorn. Their initial 7″, “Atomic Rainfall,” premiered by Die Stasi Information, also home at that time to the loud likes of Green Cause and Zola Jesus. The band’s sinister audio — which echoed the Researchers as well as the Cramps’ middle-’70s result — and frantic concert events earned them an underground pursuing. Later in 2007, Frezza still left the music group to visit art college, and bassist Shawn Beckering became a member of the fold with time to record a nine-song EP that found its way to early 2008. That season, TV Ghost agreed upon to In debt release a a full-length record and appeared on the label’s South by Southwest display. The music group also released The Fiend/Prodome as part of Columbus Discount’s One from the Month Membership in-may 2009, a couple of months before their debut full-length Cool Fish surfaced. This year 2010, VanHorn departed; Hoeft got over drumming responsibilities and Frezza came back as keyboardist. Gick, Hoeft, and Frezza documented the band’s second record, Mass Fantasy, and Television Ghost after that embarked on an extended tour from the U.S. and European countries. After the tour was completed, Beckering still left and Television Ghost recruited bassist Tristan Ivas. In debt released Mass Fantasy in Apr 2011, and the next season the Phantasm/Anxiety Area single came on Nice Rot Records. Later on in 2012, VanHorn rejoined Television Ghost like a guitarist, which lineup from the music group chosen a slower, even more expansive sound affected by Echo as well as the Bunnymen as well as the Remedy. The hypnotic Disconnect, which presented production function by Chris Woodhouse, found its way to September 2013.
