about

BURNING GHOSTS explodes from the Los Angeles Underground with an expressionist metal-jazz opus that singes the fabric of a fraying American culture. An ambitious and scathing referendum, this eponymous debut comes at a moment when our civic morality and sense of social justice, our communal values and even our very national identity, find themselves under brutal scrutiny. Holding the mirror close and clear, Burning Ghosts is an uncompromising, incendiary artistic response to ubiquitous injustice. This is music without restraint.

Excerpt from John Skipp's liner notes:

"The streets are alive with flaming specters, their sorrow etched in fire. They are the ones who passed before us. Who stood up and got mowed down for their trouble. Who never stood up, got mowed down anyway. Who barely got a chance to even stand before they were leveled low.

"These are the ghosts that flame amongst the living. Who haunt us every step of the way. Whether we ignore their fire...is entirely our call.

"But the dead call to us. And what they're saying is this:

"SET YOURSELF ON FIRE, WHILE YOU'RE STILL ALIVE TO DO SO.

"The flaming ghosts of the past are only here to inspire and inform. It's the only toehold they have left on a world they no longer inhabit. Memories. Legacies. Priceless artifacts, if we're lucky enough to have preserved them.

"They had their day.

"But this is ours.

"And lemme just say: the full weight of legacy burns through every note on this frankly astonishing record. The world we inhabited. The world we're in now. Like Miles Davis and King Crimson went to Ornette Coleman's house, where Frank Zappa, Ennio Morriccone, and Buckethead were also ready to jam with every other great musician who ever lived. Said 'Let's pretend the world matters.' And took it all the way to town from there."

—John Skipp, Los Angeles, 2015
