Obscurantist #25: Burning Ghat-Final Song

Burning gHat:
Bert Hall: Bass, Voice, Keyboards
Wayne Grim: Guitar, electronics, productions
Myke Wells: Drums, voice.

These songs were written in 1986/7 (mostly Bert wrote songs that I "arranged") and never properly recorded. We met at a studio in Baltimore in 2005 and tracked most of the bass and drums with a scratch guitar track-so I could really take time to perfect the parts later. This album was completed in 2009
