ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
One chair, one microphone, one voice and one guitar. These are the essential ingredients of "Life in a Ghost Town," the newest album from songwriter and singer Laslow Simplex.

"I wanted to get directly to the essence of each song, without any distractions, like a photographer taking pictures with an old film camera and just one lens. So I sang and played the songs over and over, with that one mic plugged into a portable tape recorder, until the mood clicked. Only afterwards did I think about adding drums, electric guitar, bass, etc."

This stripped-down approach seemed to fit perfectly with songs about never-closing bars, inescapable midnights, ceaseless desert highways and luck-forsaken stars.

"I think I've been lucky to have captured a little bit of that ghost town essence, bring it home with me, and transplant it into my tape recorder. Of course, there's really no shortage of ghost towns; just look left and right."
