True to their name, Dirty Ghosts rose from the ashes of San Francisco sludge-blues combo Parchman Farm in 2006. Then the band was a duo, but since the creation of the band, Dirty Ghosts has gone through many different iterations with many different combinations of people. All along, the common thread has been Allyson Baker, frontwoman extraordinaire. They rock pretty hard, but for Dirty Ghosts, it’s more about putting the disco into discord, using everything from dubby funk to minimalist electro to vintage Van Halen-esque contorto-riffs as means to showcase the emotional intensity of Allyson’s voice. Dirty Ghosts was in town for Fun Fun Fest this past weekend. While they were here, we had them play live in Studio 1a. You can hear their set on KUT RIGHT HERE!
