POLTERGEIST // ANNOUNCE UK TOUR DATES
Poltergeist featuring original Echo & the Bunnymen members Will Sergeant on guitar, Les Pattinson on bass, and also Nick Kilroe on drums head out this October for their biggest UK tour to date.
According to founding member Will Sergeant, ‘Poltergeist was formed in my head as a schoolboy in the 70s. Around that time my mind was awakening to music. I would dream of being Jimmy Page or some other rock god I had become aware of, mainly through the records of my mate’s big brother. My ridiculous dream of being in a band was just that, a dream. Now many years on after a good few solo musical adventures of an experimental nature. I was interested in being part of a working band. I remembered the name that had come up back then. It fitted well with the otherworldly nature of the ideas I had in my head. It is a German word and this is an unashamed nod to the likes of Can, Neu and Amon Düüll the greats of the 1970s Kraut Rock scene. Just as the name Pink Floyd is a nod to blues legends Pink Anderson and Floyd Council.’
Poltergeist’s debut album ‘Your Mind is a Box (Let Us Fill It With Wonder)’ is out now CD/180g Double LP on ‘92 Happy Customers’ via Proper Records and digitally via iTunes & Amazon.
