I love a good theme, so in honor of every child's favorite holiday, all of this month's monday morning b-sides will be loosely related to Halloween.
Marty Willson-Piper is a guy who really doesn't enjoy free time very much. As if being guitarist for The Church hasn't kept him busy enough for the past 25 years, he's also been a full time member of All About Eve, The Saints and Nocturum, recorded with Cinerama, Tom Verlaine, Jules Shear, and Rob Dickinson, and written songs with Aimee Mann and Linda Perry. And on top of all that, he's released eight solo albums.
Marty Willson-Piper - "Luscious Ghost (Unfinished Version)" (mp3)
"Luscious Ghost" was the first single from Marty's 1992 solo album Spirit Level. This "unfinished" version lacks the harmonica-sounding lead guitar parts that are heard on the album version, allowing the underlying guitar parts to be better heard.
