PoPTV | THE NEW ROCK N ROLL : COOL GHOULS – (IF I CAN’T BE) THE MAN

Cool Ghouls is a rock’n’roll band from San Francisco on Empty Cellar Records. A band for playing rock’n’roll – that electric American folk art – without pretence. Think of rock’n’roll less as a genre and more as an action. A ritual performed with electric guitars and a drum kit to conjure a certain youthful spirit.

A spot-on description from the band’s official bio – there’s little doubt that Cool Ghouls tick off most boxes when it comes to fulfilling our requirements as a pop-rock champion. Take this wonderful country-folk pop-rocker that somehow finds a middle ground between Syd Barrett and Gram Parsons in spirit and tone.

So, check out the music video for their single “(If I Can’t Be) The Man”, which was featured on their 2016 album Animal Races. The band is currently on tour in the U.S. and have released a tour only cassette entitled Gord’s Horse.
