Papa Ghostface

Papa Ghostface was a two-headed monster that just wanted to knit you a sweater — something odd-looking but surprisingly comfortable.

There were two distinct arcs to the life of this weird little duo. The first phase stretched from about 1998 to 2002, though we morphed into a larger, different band around the halfway mark. Following more than a decade of cryogenic stasis, during which Gord (the other half of PG) formed the long-running and always-evolving band Surdaster and I had a slew of solo adventures, an unexpected reunion produced some of our best music. It wasn’t fated to last, but at least we got a strong ending to the Papa Ghostface story with STEW and WHAT WE LOST IN THE FLOOD.
