The Ghost Of Rock 'n' Roll (DEMO)

from Uke Town - Double Demo Album by Phil ‘Swill’ Odgers

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Originally intended as a project through PledgeMusic until they managed to lose all of my recording funds! This is double album of 18 tracks, including 3 special cover songs, on a twin CD set. All written or played on a Ukulele! Yes, you heard that right, a Ukulele! There are some other instruments on here too of course – Tom Spencer joins in on Banjo and Guitar, Geoff Price plays Lap Steel and Mandolin – and more there’s Ukes of course – James knight also play a Tongue Drum on one of the tracks!!

    In the main part these are demo versions of songs I’ve written or taken a shine too over the past year. I’ll be looking at picking 10 of these songs, developing them further and re-recording later for a ‘commercially available’ album at some point (which may include more traditional rock n’ roll instruments).

    This double CD is a very limited edition only available here and possibly at some gigs next year. It will not be made available for general release.

How many horror/sc-fi movies and TV shows can you reference in one song?

Or is it about something more sinister altogether...?


The Ghost of Rock ‘n’ Roll

Cross his palm with silver cross his palm with gold
Cross his palm with powder, Mr Rock 'n' Roll
Prowling like a wolf, howling at the moon
The spirit of his former self is going to haunt your room

He comes to take your heart, he comes to steal your soul
He’s high, high, high, he’s low, low, low
He’s coming to get you Barbara
The ghost of Rock and Roll

He’ll drain you of your blood, he’ll prey upon your mind
Walking, stalking, disinterred, he’s following Plan 9
From outer space, one step beyond the twilight zone
And the body of his former self will stagger round your home

He comes to take your heart…

Gonna never stop, Gonna do voodoo
Pull your strings, do awful things, when he catches you
He’ll snatch your body put a pod under your bed
He can take on any form and hide and inside your head

Here he comes to take your heart…

Incredible! Invisible! Insatiable! The Ghost of Rock ‘n’ Roll
