Ignatius Jones

Artist: Ignatius Jones
LP: 12" single
Song: "Like a Ghost"
[ listen ]

I found this 1982 Ignatius Jones single at RamaLama Records when I was in Toledo at the end of July. It was still sealed so I couldn't play it on the listening station, but with its nifty cover and $2 price tag, I decided to take a chance. Formerly with Australian punk rock cabaret band Jimmy and the Boys and performing in outfits like this, Ignatius has toned down somewhat in recent years. Now he's staging elaborate opening ceremonies events at World Expos and The Olympics while wearing outfits like this. You can read more about Ignatius Jones and his connection to the spectacular "Man From Snowy River" stage musical here.
