Ghost Records is an an independent record label founded in 2002 by Francesco Brezzi and based in Varese, a ghost town on a lake in Northern Italy.

Over the years a couple of good bands were playing in Varese and were recording their own demos at a recording studio near Varese called “La Sauna”. It was high time to get these bands to the attention of the Italian audience and so the first Ghost Records’ release came out: it was a compilation called “Ghost Town: 13 songs from the lakes’ county”, with songs by some of the best Varese-based bands (Bartok, Midwest, Blend, Encode, Hormiga). A handful of strong releases soon followed (Bartok, Encode, Mr. Henry, merci Miss Monroe) and contributed to increase Ghost Record’s visibility and gave the label the chance to sign deals with such important Italian indie bands as Ronin (their debut album features guest appearances by Sara Lov from Devics and Mae Starr from Rollerball) and One Dimensional Man (they play more than 150 gigs per year) and with foreign bands like Grand Transmitter and Saeta (whose album on Ghost Records was recorded and mixed by Steve Albini).

Other excellent bands joined Ghost Record’s roster lately and they include Hot Gossip (one of the coolest band in Italy right now, they were compared to the likes of Bloc Party, Braniac and Franz Ferdinand), Edwood, Iver & The Driver, Clark Nova, Fiel Garvie and Franklin Delano.

Ghost Records recently released “Angles”, an album by Hot Gossip.
