“It Was Fun, So It’s On The Album”

Inside the making of ‘All Manners Of Manors’, an eclectic collection of songs that talk to the absurdity of the COVID-19 lockdown experience by James Gledhill, 22 August 2020.

As the COVID-19 lockdown took hold of the world, we all reached around for anything that could occupy our time and help give our stalled lives a little burst of purpose. Some of us turned to baking, others turned to hoarding toilet paper but the boys behind Ghost Bumps turned to music.

Housemates Gabe Strachan, Tim Palstra, and Max Karklins, who also make up three quarters of Purr Usual, saw the increased time together at home as an opportunity to experiment with musical ideas that sat outside of their typical leanings.

The project started back in March when Gabe came forward with the idea for ‘Company Dog’. Having set up a studio in their garage, Gabe, Tim and Max went about the process of recording and producing the track themselves. Once the process was in place, the ideas started flowing.

The other unusual part of the process for the band was that live performance did not need to play a part in the construction of the album’s songs. In fact, I was assured, the majority of the album’s songs indeed have not been performed by the three band mates from start to finish making this a very studio focused album and something that perhaps accurately captures the distance felt throughout the isolation period.

What came out of this is process is an album that takes us from the kitchen sink to the wildest of wests while never slowing enough for us to jump offboard. All Manner of Manors is the culmination of a band embracing the small moments of chaos that have dogged us all in 2020. In doing so Ghost Bumps have produced a listening experience that peaks with silliness and grounds itself in astute observations about the isolated state of mind.
