Holy Ghost!’s Ministry cover

Holy Ghost!

Long time reader will be fully aware of my feelings about Ministry (i.e. they used to be awesome, then went Industrial and were pretty good, then went Metal and were utter shit and laughably tried to disavow their SynthPop past), now one of my favourite acts of recent years, Holy Ghost!, has covered Ministry…good Ministry!

‘I Wanted To Tell Her’ was originally on Ministry’s 1983 awesome album ‘With Sympathy’ and Holy Ghost! have brought it kicking and screaming into the 21st century covered in their New York DiscoPop sound. With a little help from The Juan MacLean and Nancy Whang the duo give early Ministry some raw Funk. It will amuse ne no end if such a relevant band covering this era Ministry sees a resurgence of popular interest in the album Ministry disowned.

Holy Ghost!’s ‘Hold My Breath’ reMixes

Holy Ghost!

Out today on DFA is Holy Ghost! reMix package for ‘Hold My Breath’, one of our favourite tracks from their storming self-titled début album.

Tiger & Woods deliver a synth Funked up with a touch of Acid and a hypnotic groove. Laden with ‘80’s Electro stabs and clocking in at just under ten minutes the track is almost a meditation on dance. Cosmic Kids’ deep Disco take on the tune is full of ominous analog synths, but keeps the tune at it’s Poppy core amidst all the moody warehouse sounds. To be honest, neither is a patch on the original, but do make a nice compliment.

Holy Ghost! and Michael McDonald!

Holy Ghost! forthcoming new single, ‘Some Children’ has got itself a cool minute long commercial courtesy of Ghoster Adam Fuchs, and Adult Swim.

Hopefully it will get expanded into a full video soon and the song well deserves it, a funky urban electronic groove featuring the voice of yacht legend Michael McDonald. The clip seems to be built around the sheep omnipotent power of McDonalds voice.

‘Some Children’ is out soon and taken from Holy Ghost!’s self titled début album, out now.

Holy Ghost!’s ‘Wait And See’ video

Holy Ghost!’s new video for their single ‘Wait And See’ stars Misters Millhiser and Frankel senior. As in Holy Ghosts! Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel’s respective fathers.

Directed by Ben Fries the video sees the Holy Ghost! elders living the NYC lifestyle, going clubbing, getting a band rehearsal down, chatting online with Classixx. I think Nick’s dad has pulled?

‘Wait And See’ is out now on DFA, it’s an awesome slice of NYC flavoured Indie-Disco.

Holy Ghost! reMix Mark Ronson & Boy George

I’ve got a bit of a love/hate relationship with Mark Ronson (And The Business INTL)’s new album ‘Record Collection’. Some of the tracks on there are amazing, ‘Band Bang Bang’ is one of my favourite songs of the year, but some of it is a bit dreary.

Anyway, the third single from the album is the Boy George featuring ‘Somebody To Love Me’ and Team Ronson have made the excellent decision to get super cool fellow NYC residents Holy Ghost! to reMix the track. They bring with them their unique brand of analog DIY Disco turning the track into a gritty discoball epic. Let the Garage Disco roll!

Mark Ronson & The Business INTL (Feat. Boy George & Andrew Wyatt) – Somebody To Love Me (Holy Ghost! reMix)

‘Somebody To Love Me’ is out 26th November.

Monarchy Vs. Holy Ghost! in full

Monarchy02

As a follow up to our post earlier in the week featuring a Radio Rip of the Holy Ghost! reMix of Monarchy’s amazing forthcoming single, ‘Love Get Out Of The Way’, we can now preview for you the whole song.

There are whispers that the reMix wasn’t supposed to be played as it may have been rejected, but now with the blog hype the track gained this week it may make the cut! This is just rumour though.

Check the original post to hear us going on about Moog funk, and listen to the whole track below.

Holy Ghost! reMix Monarchy’s forthcoming single!

monarchy02

New Yorkers Holy Ghost! have really gone to funky town with Monarchy’s forthcoming single ‘Love Get Out Of My Way’.

Premiered on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 Show last Friday the reMix is a massive slice of Moog Funk. You can hear little elements of the component parts creeping in here and there. Little bits of Monarchy and little bits of Holy Ghost!’s NYC Disco all presided over by a huge Moog riff.

Funkier than we are used to with Monarchy? Yes. Awesome as hell? Yes!
