The Sound Can Be Found


Santa Claus and his elves needed some quick-paced Ska music to help them meet the production demands of the modern world so they called upon Ghost Town Sound's Jimmy Foot & Doug Wendt. Out in the studio, there arose such a clatter, The engineers looked up to see what was the matter, When what to their wondering ears did they hear, Than the Ska Santas spreading Ska holiday cheer!

- Be sure and tune into the 5 GHOST TOWN SOUND radio programs recently created for World One & posted on our new Radio page.  They are about 77 minutes each and feature some really amazing wide-ranging music, all under the GHOST TOWN SOUND umbrella of inspirational influences.  Live GHOST TOWN SOUND performances of "Ohtahku" and "Crow Testament" are included in these well-rounded excursions into the realm.  Radio webcasts with a difference.  The reaction has been stupendous.  Give thanks.

Here's the original demo video version of "Otahku".  The final versions are spelled "Ohtahku" as is a new zine under the same title.  Please monitor our Video Sessions page for the latest. Ohtahku is a unique & mysterious sound only known to its place. Here's the demo's higher resolution Vimeo version.
