GARETH SAGER & THE HUNGRY GHOSTS Released 3-Track ‘ST.JOCK’ EP…

New sonic impulses

30 August 2019

Edinburgh born artist GARETH SAGER‘s CV is quite impressive: multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, classical music composer, a founding member of funky post-punk
junks The Pop Group, jazzy avant-garde combo Rip Rig + Panic, Bristol rockers Head
and countless collaborations. After his gracious 2017 classical piano LP 88 Tuned Dreams he gathered a kooky gang called THE HUNGRY GHOSTS and released the gloriously wacky album Juicy Rivers last year.

A couple of weeks ago one of the albums’ most accessible, sensible and gripping tracks
ST. JOCK was released as a single plus two bonus tracks. It’s a both poignant and charming contemplation about the late Scottish poet Jock Scott.

Sager explains: “St. Jock isn’t directly a homage to Jock Scot though does try to express his
spirit in the sense that he was very honest about his failings, which appeared to occur much more than his successes; like most of us! Though there is a reference to a girlfriend of his whose favourite past time was to tile! Apart from that the song contains the most difficult first line to sing ever: “She wears a white, red wine stained smock”.

GARETH SAGER & THE HUNGRY GHOSTS – New Explosive Party Album ‘JUICY RIVERS’ Out Now…

13 October 2018

Edinburgh born artist GARETH SAGER‘s CV is quite impressive: multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, classical music composer, a founding member of funky post-punk
junks The Pop Group, jazzy avant-garde combo Rip Rig + Panic, Bristol rockers Head
and countless collaborations here, there and everywhere. After releasing his gracious classical piano LP 88 Tuned Dreams last year Sager is back with a totally different beast. Assisted by his gang THE HUNGRY GHOSTS he just dropped new album JUICY RIVERS.

It’s party time for all the outcasts, all the misfits and all the bohemians out there. Imagine the genial Mothers Of Invention fronted by the eccentric Captain Beafheart instead of the equally eccentric icon Frank Zappa. That’s my overall exciting feeling after a couple of ‘Juicy Rivers‘ spins. You get all the sonic pandemonium your greedy ears and your fucked up mind need. From elevating glam weirdness (Disco Sofa) to bluesy funkness (Pete Le Beat), from demonic rock (Bar Stool Warrior Chant) to deranged post-punk grimness (Pitbull Watusi) and lots of far-out stuff in between. Throw your straitjacket through the window and shake your lazy hips on repeat right now, right here…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

17 August 2018

Edinburgh born artist GARETH SAGER‘s CV is quite impressive: multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, classical music composer, a founding member of funky post-punk
junks The Pop Group, jazzy avant-garde combo Rip Rig + Panic and Bristol rockers Head. After releasing his gracious classical piano LP 88 Tuned Dreams last year Sager is already back with a new project and this time it seems like he wants to have some freakish fun. With his accomplices, named THE HUNGRY GHOSTS he just launched pumping single DISCO SOFA. A glamorous crackerjack sounding as if legendary misfits Frank Zappa
and Captain Beefheart felt bored, down there in Abaddon, and got their doped heads together to start a frantic far-out party in hell. The stomping impact of ‘Disco Sofa‘ will affect all of your senses and make you move in mysterious ways. Resistance is futile.
Time to get our lazy butts out of the couch and go berserk. Right here, right now…
