Ghost Rider is the second single from the album Diabolique by indie supergroup L’Epee. The band are Anton Newcombe of the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Lionel & Marie Liminana of The Liminanas and Emmanuel Seigner of Ultra Orange and Emmanuelle. The three-track 12” contains an exclusive non-LP track, Shiny Shiny. If you’re wondering, the title track is an original song and not a cover of the classic Suicide track.

'Ghost Rider' is the second single release from psych-rock supergroup L'épée. It takes two songs from from their self-proclaimed 'seminal' debut record as well as an new and exclusive one, 'Shiny Shiny'.
This single has a pleasingly apocalyptic feel. From singer Emmaunelle Seigner's lamenting chorus of "I'm Dead" on lead single 'Ghost Rider' to that gently menacing descending guitar line in 'Lou' the whole single seems to be narrating a slow fall from grace. The songs chug along at their own pace. There isn't much progression but there doesn't need to be. We've heard similar grooves before on BJM records but L'épée have made them looser and even a little baleful.
They haven't reinvented the wheel but fans of sexy, lumbering rhythms, growling guitars, and breathy vocals need look no further.
