north east scotland's festival of new music

Phantom Band

The Phantom Band

THE PHANTOM BAND is a proto-robofolk sextet based in Glasgow who released their debut album Checkmate Savage to critical acclaim on Chemikal Underground in January 2009.

Folk, pop, techno with guitars, classic rock, metal, noise terrorism, gospel, soundscapes - The Phantom Band is a dionysiac of six people trying with all their might to pull in six very different directions. The end result however is truly special, bringing to mind the beat savvy of The Beta Band, the other-worldliness of Super Furry Animals and the mood of Hallowed Ground-era Violent Femmes.

"A nine track, nearly one hour long mash up of krautrock, swamp-rock and Beefheart-oddness." (Chemikal Underground)

"I've been listening to The Phantom Band out of the UK. It's a combination of folk rock and kraut rock that is really great." (Peter Buck, REM)
