The debut album from Glasgow Krautrock/folkie combo, The Phantom Band, has been receiving universal 4 star reviews all week in everything from The NME to The Guardian. My mate Kenneth has been proclaiming their majesty for some time now and I have to say this unofficial pre-release video shows considerable potential.
I for one shall be tootling down to Fopp to stock up.
This is even better, a tribute to German art rockers, Can, from whom they are said to derive many of their influences.
Myself? I was a bigger fan of Faust and this masterpiece may demonstrate why.
On the other hand you may, like 99% of the population find them ear bleed inducing noiseniks with not a musical quality to their name. (But you’d be wrong.)
