Part I: Protest Music (Youtube Video Playlist)

Posted on Nov. 15, 2019

 

Freaky Be Funky is an album in 3 chapters.  The first chapter is Part I: Protest Music

The first 5 tracks on Freaky Be Funky focus on the eternal war between the corrupt power structures of the world and the unwavering rebel spirit.

These are songs about freedom, peace and fucking with the program.

Hope y'all dig it! 

Much love,
-g-


Big Tech Book Burning (Original song/video)

Posted on Jul. 15, 2019

Fuck Censorship.

My new music video about the #VoxAdpocalypse and the insane torrent of online censorship of dissident voices including Milo, Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson....man the list is way too long at this point.

Keep it real,

BANNED SONG - "It's Okay To Be White" SJW Friendly Re-mix!

Posted on Nov. 24, 2018

Youtube banned the original version of this song for "hate speech".  Hopefully we can actually get this one past the censors.

The original unedited version is on my bitchute channel: Bitchute.com/ghosty

I suggest people subscribe to me there because Youtube just isn't a reliable platform anymore.  Big Tech as a whole has decided to cave to globalist corporations, fake news and SJWs.

Originally I just wrote this song as a joke, but apparently it's more serious than I thought.  I guess maybe it's not okay to be white after all.

It's Okay To Be White Song/Video

Posted on Feb. 13, 2018

Based on a 4chan postering campaign that stirred up controversy with what has to be the most innoffensive thing I've ever heard.  How is this even controversial?

Update July 15, 2019: This song just got voxxed for violating Youtube's "hate speech" policies.  I guess 4chan was right after all...

Update Oct 31st, 2019: Re-edited an SJW friendly re-mix with the edgy bits all cut out.  :)

Update Nov 16th, 2019: Holy Jesus Fuck Youtube removed it again!  And that was AFTER I went through and edited a safe space version for them!

Alright fuck it.  Here is the original "It's Okay To Be White" in all it's offensive glory on Bitchute, where they don't hate free speech.

Hi guys! It's your friendly neighborhood rebel lunatic here with a handy dandy guide to modern media stupidity! LET'S MAKE FUN OF EVERYONE!!!

Fake News everywhere!

Every source has different degrees of journalistic integrity mixed in with shoddy, lazy or agenda driven bullshit. In Part 1 I'll roughly identify some different "teams" and their dumbass agenda.

Part 2 shows a couple handy tricks to *TRY* to get a little closer to the objective truth. I'll include a few sources that I dig as well.

Ghosty Predicts the 2016 election!

Posted on Nov. 7, 2016

America has the best elections, folks!

Tremendous candidates, believe me. The media isn't a trainwreck (they are) and the primary wasn't rigged against Sanders (it was). 

That's just locker room talk, folks.  Big league.

Thank god this embarassing asshole of a dumpster fire trainwreck of an election is nearly fucking over.


Recording In Nashville!

Posted on Oct. 23, 2016

I've been working on a new Current Swell record with the fantastic Jacquire King and it has been a fantastic experience.

Jacquire and his team of engineers are absolutely world-class and I've had to amp up my game to keep up with their creativity and ruthless efficiency.  The iconic Blackbird studio in Nashville is the craziest studio I've had the pleasure of working in.

Heading to Vancouver soon to continue recording.  Stoked!

Angel Wings and Bria's Music Box

Posted on Jun. 3, 2016

(by Ghosty, for Bria with Love)

I'm sitting here spinning the lever of a wind-up music box that my dear friend Bria Magnin-Forster gave to me. The delicate lullabye tones twinkle over the whir of the winding gears. It is haunting and beautiful.

Bria was like that. Beautiful, but at the same time haunted. She'd sit in my living room playing the piano, inventing these breathtaking melodies that would tear at your soul.

Haunting and beautiful.

The first night I met Bria she was busking downtown. We had this immediate, profound creative connection. She played me a song she wrote called 'Roxy', a brilliantly crafted story about a sex worker's internal struggle.

The Sell-Out Song Music Video!

Posted on Mar. 8, 2016

The $ell-Out $ong is a track from an old solo record of mine called Look on the Bright Side.

In the A.D.D. riddled depths of an MS Paint bender I randomly decided that now was the time to make an animated music video for the song.

It's an ode to all the creative, talented artists who do it for the love of music, and refuse to dumb it down or pop it up to try to make a quick buck.  Hope you dig it!

Hi

Posted on Dec. 15, 2015

I'm Ghosty, and I don't really want to write a blog right now. Come back later and *maybe* I'll actually have something here.

In the meantime, click around this website and check out music and videos from the bands that I play in.

...

...you still here?

Alright, if you really want to know I'll tell you ONE thing: I have not worn a pair of matching socks in over ten years.

Trust me, bro!

Satisfied? Okay good. Now go click on some stuff or something. Maybe buy an album while you're at it.

I promise I will put something here when I get a chance.

Peace,

Current Swell back on the road!
Coming soon to a city near you!

Funk Vigilante full live concert video is coming!

Posted on Sep. 11, 2015

As it turns out we've procured the footage from the 'End of the World' show in Victoria.

Funk Vigilante End of the World Show

Initially the plan was to edit one or two song together, but the entire set was actually pretty dope, and the project has kind of evolved. It's taking some time to put all the pieces together, but we hope to release the entire concert soon.

Stay tuned!


New Current Swell E.P. out now!

Posted on Aug. 20, 2015

We just released a new 5 song E.P. titled 'Home is where you make it'!

Home is where you make it

The E.P. features a new recording of the track 'Young and Able', as well as a couple of live recordings and a couple of songs recorded during the Ulysess sessions that weren't included on that record.

You can listen to the tracks and purchase them at the official Swell audio store.

Hope you dig it.


Playing a festival with Jane's Addiction!

Posted on Jun. 4, 2015
RockTheShores

Man, I freaked the fuck out when I heard this!

Current Swell will play Victoria's own Rock the Shores festival this month and Jane's Addiction is headlining.

Jane's Addiction has been my all-time favorite band (...i think) ever since I was a little punk (...i still am) so sharing a stage with them is an enourmous milestone for me as a musician.

I can only assume that the show will end with Perry and I having a massive bro-down, most likely under the influence of designer hallucinogens. We connect on such a deep, spiritual level that he asks me to join the band as there permanent bass player. Obviously I say yes, because I'm not in nearly enough bands as it is.

Hey, a fella can dream, right?

Cheers!


Strange Birds playing in Victoria!

Posted on May. 15, 2015

Strange Birds of a Feather, the alternative punk-grunge-whatever band I play with, will be rockin a show at Upstairs Caberet this Sunday with our bestest friends Spaceboots!

Come one, come all. It's sure to be a night of inebriation and debauchery!

See you there!

Turn on the radio...nah, fuck it, turn it off.

A talented gentleman by the name of Adam Lee at VictoriaMusicScene.com took the initiative to make videos of our show at Sugar!

They look and sound pretty sweet considering it's a single camera. The first video for Guerilla Radio is up now, hopefully we'll have the rest of the playlist up soon!


Guerilla Radio LIVE - Killing In The Name Of

Posted on Apr. 20, 2015

The Rage tribute project is one of the most ruthless ass-kicking bands I've ever played with. The shows are electrifying and the crowds are always amazing.

Featuring the wicked chops of Funk-V alumni Josh Boudreau and Jud Mackay, as well as Joe Faraguna on bass!

I am sincerly honoured to play these iconic rebel anthems with such a fantastic crew of badass motherfuckers.

Keys to the Kingdom - Current Swell

Posted on Jan. 25, 2014

I think this is probably my favorite Current Swell video. It's vaguely a parody of the reality t.v. series "Storage Wars", but I dig it just because we thought up so much weird, fucked up nonsense to put in it.

We get to throw American dollar bills all over the place, and my character is in some wacky B.D.S.M. scene in a garage with bunnies and shit.

Internet Fight Song - Funk Vigilante

Posted on Jan. 16, 2012

From the first lyrics to the finished video, Internet Fight Song was produced in under a week as a response to the impending SOPA/ACTA bills being pushed through American congress to censor the Internet.

Although the bill was defeated, I like to think this track still stands as a reminder that the public must remain eternally vigilant if we hope to protect the Internet from governments and corporations who seek to stifle free speech.


Funk Vigilante - Holy Land (Anti-war Song)

Posted on Jan. 3, 2012

Holy Land is another montage style video. Cut and pasted from photographs and clips that have inspired us along the way.

The track is from the Funk Vigilante album 'Civil Disobedience'.

Funk Vigilante Freedom Tour Spring 2010!

Posted on May. 31, 2010

Funk Vigilante tours Western Canada in support of their debut record "Civil Disobedience".

Apologies to the wicked people who came out to the Richmond, BC show. That was the last and one of the best shows on the tour, but the footage from that night was unfortunately lost.


Ghosty with Funk Vigilante - Civil Disobedience

Posted on Dec. 28, 2009

Hardcore funk-metal from Funk Vigilante.  This was the title track to our 2009 debut record Civil Disobedience.

Funk V represents some of the freakiest punk-rock badasses I've ever played with, and some of the finest friends I've ever known.

I'm fired up to say that some unrecorded Funk V tracks will be reworked for my solo record "Freaky Be Funky", and that some of my funky brothers will be infusing it with their incredible creative talents.
