South by Southwest may be over a month away, but it seems as if there’s already plenty of talk regarding the acts that made the cut.  Today’s Monday Mixteen gives you an opportunity to sample some of the Texas acts that will be performing.  In addition to some very familiar names, there are a few […]

Two of the 17 best releases shown above

The Ghost has always avoided doing Best Albums of the Year lists.  There is something intimidating about making such lists and making certain that your words are appropriately eloquent for each of the releases.  But for the first time, The Ghost is taking on the task… sort of.  What follows is an unranked listing of […]

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.  That’s because he’s making a list, checking it twice.  He’s gonna find out who’s naughty or nice.  It’s time for The Ghost’s Top 101 Countdown of 2017. What did you think I was talking about? The countdown will begin tomorrow, and there will even be a live […]

The Ghost almost never discusses music outside of the state of Texas.  Today, however, I will discuss a band that was a huge favorite of my teenage years, and still one of my all time favorite bands.  INXS were superstars of the 1980’s alternative rock movement, thanks to killer tracks like “The One Thing”, “What […]

I hope everyone has enjoyed this weekend.  It marks one of my favorite weekends of the year.  Why is that?  Simple: one hour of extra sleep.  Yes, The Ghost does love his sleep.  And I recall some British guy once saying something about sleeping perchance to dream, or something to that effect.  So to celebrate […]

Monday Mixteen 20171030

With the end of October being upon us, this seemed the appropriate time to do a recap of some of the best new music of the month.  I also wanted to do an all covers themed Monday Mixteen playlist.  After much thought, the solution became clear.  One playlist wouldn’t be enough today.  Part 2 of […]

Before I begin today’s Video Wednesday, let me remind my readers that I am very comfortable with the idea of selling out and getting a sponsor.  My deal is still open to allow any Volkswagen dealership the opportunity to sponsor Video Wednesday.  That’s why it’s on a Wednesday: so I can call it VW.  Other […]

Last Tuesday was World Mental Health Day, and in case you missed it, The Ghost had a bit to say on the matter.  My original intent was just to share a few songs that addressed the issue, but it soon became clear that the story was supposed to be much more than that.  As a […]

Most of the songs on today’s edition of Ten for Your Attention This Thursday are recent releases. In the case of Particular People, however, their album Meat for Particular People came out early this summer. It’s a release that probably would have flown under my radar had it not been for longtime GOBL fan and friend Shelley. […]

GOBL Presents Rat Rios, Tomkat, Franc...

I thank Nick Scholl for taking these lovely photographs from my showcase at The Underpass earlier in February. The photos, however, do not tell the full story. The photos cannot show the unique intensity of the ritualistic performance of Francine Thirteen. No picture appropriate demonstrates the live skills of Tomkat. And no matter how good […]
