Ghost B.C. – “If You Have Ghosts” (Roky Erickson Cover)
Earlier this year, the flamboyant Swedish metal band Ghost B.C. — or, if you don’t care about the only-in-America legal silliness that led to the name change, just Ghost — linked up with producer and famous rock dude Dave Grohl and covered Abba’s “I’m A Marionette.” Soon, Ghost will release a new EP of covers called If You Have Ghost; it’ll also include their version of Depeche Mode’s “Waiting For The Night.” For the EP’s title track, the band once again hooked up with Grohl, who produced their version of “If You Have Ghosts,” a 1981 freakout from the troubled Texan psych-rock survivor Roky Erickson. Listen to their version of the song below.
If You Have Ghost is out 11/19 on Loma Vista.
