Black Casino and the Ghost are an alternative rock band consisting of Elisa Zoot (vocals, piano) Ariel Lerner (guitar) Gary Kilminster (bass) and Paul Winter-Hart (drums, also member of British band Kula Shaker). The band was formed in London, England. They released an EP called “Falling into pieces” in 2011 and an album, “Some dogs think their name is no”, in 2013. Their second album “Until the water runs clear” has been released in November 2015. An eclectic mix of delta blues, piano-led ballads, alternative rock and cinematic orchestral arrangements, Black Casino and the Ghost’s music is about isolation, disorientation, lust, and how to fly a plane through turbulence without spilling your coffee.
