Cool Ghouls

CCR Bootleg

words by tom johnson

It seems like only yesterday we were heralding the propulsive indie-rock of Cool Ghouls, and their wonderfully wholesome Animal Races LP (Melodic Records). Such is the way these days, however, and it’s actually been eighteen months since its summer 2016 release, and, as such, new track CCR Bootleg is both a perfectly-timed return, and an energetic reminder of their craft.

Taken from a new Post Trash’s new compilation – Volume 3 – the gleaming new cut will sit alongside tracks from the likes of Pardoner, Christina Schneider, Bad History Month, and many others, while all benefits will be donated to Puerto Rico hurricane relief. Rowdy and rambunctious, CCR Bootleg is a skittering four-minutes, showcasing the punkier side of the band, that boisterous lead-vocal backing up a suitably solid-but-slack backline that adds a distinct and palpable air of city living, from the he daily clamour, to the surrounding hedonism of such a thing.
