For Those that came in late:
Gabriel Garcia Marquez once remarked that good writers are not always judged by what they say, but often by what they dont say. Hungry Ghosts ventured off into this space, deciding soon after their first rehearsal, that the Art of the Smashed-up-sonic-meltdown was best left to their heroes. What soon followed was an exercise in restraint... who could play the quietest, or who could do the least. The result, was the discovery of Silence...
HUNGRY GHOSTS first appeared on the scene in the 90s.
After only three performances, they came to the attention of Lindsay Gravina,
who instantly fell in love with the group, inviting them on-the-spot to record an album at his Birdland Studio.
They also captured the attention of the late Rowland S. Howard who offered to assist in producing the sounds that would make up their first album.
By 1999, they found themselves invited to NYC, by Sonic Youth's Steve Shelley, who helped create an even sparser album, Alone, Alone, which one reviewer described as, "....blessed with the ability to utter a million words with a single instrumental phrase and to turn a melancholy passage into a triumphant climax."
