I'm sticking with the singular since the subject of the song seems to be the location of Ladbroke Grove and how it has become corrupted over time, so the memory of the old Ladbroke Grove would be a singular memory or Ghost. I know Jaz wrote that list, but I've seen setlists where it reads Ghost, and I imagine he wrote those too.\

unless... he does seem to sing about the people in LG and how they have become seemingly empty vessles, so maybe it is Ghosts... i guess because I got the ep first so I came to know it as Ghost of LG, just as I came to know Savage Freedom as This Savage Freedom from an early tracklist given in NME or MM.

I just wanted to go a little offtopic here and say that I'm starting to get into this track. True, it's a bad one for a closer, but I'm finally starting to notice some really awesome things about it. Apart from the sinister guitar in the verses and the powerful chorus, I love the ending:\
\
No.. more.. beautiful, no.. more.. terrible\
No.. more.. beautiful, no.. more.. terrible\
NO MOOORRRE\

The song has many 'tricks', the things that Hosannas album missed, which made it so dull. I smell Youth's influence here. He made Depthcharge (and every other song on AD, actually) exciting when it comes to arranging.

Wait a minute, re ghost/ghosts, surely the actual lyrics on the CD sleeve will tell us whether or not he is saying singular or plural?

the lyrics are written Ghosts. So are the setlists, which are typed out, not handwritten. Going by the album/lyrics i have doubts because it is Spinefarm, so who knows. I mean the ep said Ghost, album says Ghosts. single says Superstate, album says Super State, so obviously there is not much effort there, but the setlist is done by the band and then Jaz's printed tracklist seals the deal: it is Ghosts of Ladbroke Grove... or is it Ladbroke Grave? \;)\

Yeah, and the worst thing is Jaz doesn't give a damn - "it's all about the music, who cares about single letters", while I need my damn tags fixed! ;P\
Also, how can we make a KJ altar if we're not sure how to carve the song titles. It is important. And I am drunk \:(\
