    My debut album was recorded on a four track in various backrooms, bedrooms and friends basements.
    I had been writing and playing music for about a decade before I felt comfortable releasing anything. With the encouragement of friends and family I finally did. Friend and fellow musician, Kim Stewart suggested the title of the album, it was our notoriously seedy neighbourhood in East Vancouver.

    "Ghostrain is Luke Gustafson, whose songs emerge from his bedroom studio on the four tracks of a Yamaha MT150. Some of these tunes date back nearly a decade, but there’s nothing stale or archaic about this album. Its peculiar ambiance is established on the first song. Quiet and unobtrusive, though potent and engaging, its an album you listen to because it whispers in your ear like a secret." - Exclaim! Magazine 2005

lyrics

Daydreaming about the coast of Oregon,
I have not been that far west.
You don't mind or care if I
Take an eastbound jet plane.
Have not seen or
Heard from her yet, man.

Portland city is five days by train.
Bought my ticket in the pouring rain.
Steely Dan's "Pearl of the Quarter",
On the record player spinning in the corner.
She won't cross my boundaries
Or my border.

Time to call a coupe d'etat.
A coupe de'tat.
Just who the hell do you
Think you are?

(Bridge)

She won't cross my boundaries
Or my border.

Time to call a coupe d'etat.
A coupe de'tat.
Just who the hell do you
Think you are?

(Bridge)

Daydreaming about the coast of Oregon,
I have not been that far west.
You don't mind or care if I
Take an eastbound jet plane...
