Album Notes
The Ghosts of Lovers are a cult London, UK Glam-Punk Rock 'n' Roll band that existed in the late '80's / early '90's. Initially based around their mutual love of the 'musical trinity’ of Johnny Thunders, Lords of the New Church and Hanoi Rocks. The Ghosts strove to make their own unique imprint however, and after some initial line up changes, the 'classic' Ghosts of Lovers line up consisted of Kevin MacDonald on Vocals, Guy Bourseau on Lead Guitar, Steve Perry on Rhythm Guitar, Kevin Sargeant on Bass and Steve Pegrum on Drums.

As an interview during the period for London-based fanzine Submerge revealed, their aesthetic vision was detailed: "The chimera of eclectic sources which influence us are the spirit of Altamont where Rock and Roll met dark forces beyond its control, black leather, chain-smoking, courting crucifixion, crushed velvet, Berlin, Iggy Pop, David Bowie, Herman Hesse, Manhattan, Lou Reed, Christiane F, and The New York Dolls".

All the band's eleven studio recordings, plus four bonus live tracks are now available for the first time. The bands debut recording was made in 1990 at the legendary RMS Studios in Crystal Palace, and The Ghosts second studio session (this time as a four piece following a line-up change) took place in Purley in 1991 (The Purely tracks were recorded Live from Midnight - 6am, with only vocal overdubs). They say that things that burn brightly and intensely aren't intended to last a long time, and this was to be the case with The Ghosts of Lovers. Shortly after the recording musical differences emerged which ultimately led to the dissolution of the band and by the summer the band had spilt up. These recordings represent the band’s collected works and offer a glimpse into the period when they truly shone.
