Ghostboy With Golden Virtues

A heady mix of sonic narrative & erotic ‘duende’, Ghostboy with Golden Virtues are avant-garde art rock brutes!

Flanked by multi instrumentalist chanteuses Skye Staniford and Hannah Jane, acclaimed spoken ‘weird’ artist and live beastie Ghostboy delivers his special blend of antagonism and sensuality with precise, almost sadistic delight. Dark horses Robbie Zawada + Paul Daly and Dan McNaulty (from We All Want To) round out the sound with electric guitars, bass and drums; while tap-dancing minx Loren Skyring sprinkles a little voodoo dust on the edges.

Their pants-off-punk-kabaret-músik is not for the faint hearted. These underground creatures seduce audiences into a world of Berlin-style rock 'n' roll debauchery. Comparisons have been made to Nick Cave, Iggy Pop, Mojo Juju, The Tiger Lillies, John Cooper Clarke, Serge Gainsbourg, The Pogues, Lovage and Michelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen.

Infamous for their exploding live shows they have (dis)graced stages in recent years at the Woodford Folk, Melbourne Fringe Festival Hub and Brisbane Cabaret festivals, while occasionally disturbing the airwaves of JJJ, ZzZ and RRR.

Their independent debut album ENTER (produced by Darek 11000 from DiscoNap/Intercooler) is set for full release 2nd Feb 2010 with lead single “Wolfish” and its erotic clip receiving rotation on RAGE (ABC).

Audiences are never safe, but always electric.

"This writer has been attending the Melbourne Fringe Festival for more than two decades now, and Ghostboy with Golden Virtues are far and away the best thing I have ever seen there. Epic psychosexual rock opera ....of the fucking absurd." Inpress

“This is beautiful, various and very exotic!” - Spex (Germany)

“GBGV’s powerhouse performance tonight is demonstrative of their credentials as a truly sterling live (art-)rock band... One of the most bizarre and brilliant live music events Brisbane is likely to witness this year” - Time Off
