Press release for THOUGHTGHOST by
SURREALISTIC released at the end of 2011: is the solo work of Ben Furniss from Grey Lynn, Auckland. After several years of playing in bands such as THE BROKEN HEARTBREAKERS, WHITE SWAN BLACK SWAN, SUPERTURTLE, he finally got around to finishing his second solo album. Crazy mad for the ethereal sounds of the Mellotron, it was decided that his 1970’s M400 was to be used liberally on this recording, as well as some of his other vintage synths. Other players include: Darren McShane on Bass, Matthew Furniss and Michael Morales on drums, Murray Jacques on keyboards. Enjoy!
