Ghoulies are a new band from Perth who have just graced Slime Street’s catalogue with a full-length tape. Flat Earth is the quartet’s first work together as far as I know, but in no way lacks attitude. On the contrary, the eleven songs on the tape flicker past so quickly, they’ll leave your hearing blurred. Obviously influenced by the likes of Coneheads and Neo Neos, still sound uniquely Australian. The recordings are lo-fi and the synths sound like fleamarket finds, but the melodies are gold. If you like Gee Tee you’ll be sure to enjoy the Ghoulies brand of synth-punk as well. If you’re holding out for vinyl there will be a release on Cuerdas Fuera Records too eventually.
This is great!
