Inspiration for the name was found at the same titled The Damned album, but it also reminds about apparent fiction of universal truth."

Phantasmagoria is a male/female experimental-electronic-indie-pop duo from Detroit, Michigan. Formed in 2010 by Christopher Jarvis and Lianna Vanicelli after the fallout of their previous band (The Flower That Ate New York) they quickly developed a strong local following. After their first digital release "Spirit EP" came out in January 2011 it garnered mostly positive reviews and gained the attention of Detroit-based record label Five Three Dial Tone Records, who are set to put out their first physical release in the form of a 7" single in early 2011. They embark on their first tour in March 2011 which will take place up and down the east coast alongside local indie rock band The Kodaks.
Christopher Jarvis has been a part of bands in the past experimenting with the genres of post-hardcore/punk/indie/pop/rock as a guitar player, keyboardist, and vocalist. Most notably was the indie-pop The Flower That Ate New York (active 2005-2010). He also operates under the producer/dj pseudonym "Eugene Jarvy" for his electronic music (techno/dubstep/house) as part of the Detroit electronic music collective called DETROIT PRODUCE, with which Phantasmagoria is also associated.
Lianna Vanicelli was noticed by the band The Flower That Ate New York in 2007 for her vocal talents which won her national recognition in competition. She played guitar as well as vocals for that band until they went defunct in 2010 and from which Phantasmagoria was born.
