david mitchell (formerly of such wonderful bands as the exploding budgies, goblin mix and the 3Ds) originally released an acoustic 7″ single with (fellow 3d member) denise roughan entitled the ghost club back in 1996. soon the pair had relocated to london, effectively dissolving the 3ds (after the brilliant strange news from the angels album in 1997) and they took on the ghost club moniker as their new working title, adding ex-patriot kiwi jim abbot to share bass and drum roles with roughan.
short-lived david mitchell 3 piece, and the last of his auckland bands. this is when he truely found his voice, with support from phil moore, andrew moon and (flying nun alumni) alf danielson, the goblin mix put out 2 eps in 1985 on
