Camberwell Now – "The Ghost Trade" (Ink Records ‎– INK 19) 1986

An definite improvement on “Meridian” was Camberwell Now's debut LP, “The Ghost Trade”. Starting off with old This Heat number, “Working Nights” it begins to sound less like solo Wyatt, and more like Camberwell Now; although far inferior to This Heats version,as heard on The “Live in Amsterdam” bootleg, it misses the lead guitar melody provided by the absent Charles Bullen.

“Sitcom” sustains the standard sufficiently,to excuse the blatant disco of “Speculative Fiction”.

This fine album finishes off with the classic “Green Lantern”,and the title track, which marks some kind of a return to form.


Working Nights 7:41
Sitcom 4:40
Wheat Futures 6:11
Speculative Fiction 6:09
Green Lantern 3:11
The Ghost Trade 11:11
