You know the four of us from many bands over the years: Pike 27, The Light Wires, Wojo, El Gigante, Alone at 3AM, and The Grey Dogs.

This band is different.

Drawing on a cratedigger’s attic of influences, we make soundtracks for the movies in your head. Kitchen sink, no vox.

You’ll dig us if you dig: Bill Frisell, The Police, Los Lobos, Tom Waits, The Meters, Pell Mell, Tortoise, Calexico, shortwave radio scanning, numbers stations, and vintage tube amps.

Ghost Man On Second is:
Mike Fair – guitar, keyboard
Andy Hittle – guitar
Dave Purcell – drums, samples
Aaron Zlatkin – bass
