In the summer of 2011 the band recorded their début album ‘Sounds From The Obscure’ in the Graveland studio’s in The Netherlands. The record is mixed by Pelle Gunnerfeldt (Hives, Mando Diao, Refused etc.) who also mixed 2 songs of The Obscure EP (2011). The new record contains 12 stunning surf rock songs and was released 25-2- 2012 on Mirananda Records. As a bonus tha double cd release had an instrumental CD for all the dedicated surf music fans.
The seemingly awkward cooperation came unexpected but developed smoothly into a new project. Phantom Frank: “A few years ago we played in the Bitterzoet in Amsterdam. After the show Rudeboy, who has been friends with our drummer for years, came to us to express his enthusiasm about our show. A year later we called him and asked him to record a song together for our upcoming (otherwise) instrumental album. We started playing live together and what began as a guest performance of a song evolved into a completely new project. “
Many surfers, skaters, boarders, rockabillies and punks are drawn to The Phantom & The Four Arguido. The rawness and energy of the band on stage often make for wild scenes in the pit. On stage, the quintet does not lack experience in performing. For the past six years The Phantom Four played nearly all major venues and festivals in The Netherlands and performed with artists such as Fun Lovin Criminals, G. Love & Special Sauce, Dick Dale and The Trashmen. The track record of The Arguido goes without saying.
After 66 shows The Phantom Four & The Arguido did a farewell show at de Melkweg in Amsterdam on December 22nd, 2012. The Phantom Four will be focussing on releasing a new instrumental surf album September 2013.
