If you downloaded your album from eMusic, you should know that they mistagged a couple of songs. "Mr. Natural" is billed as "The None of One" and viceversa. Cross-check with their MySpace stream to make sure you got them right: http://www.myspace.com/thephantombandpage/music/albums/the-wants-16615713
Burial Sounds is on a recent free iTunes sampler downloadable through Facebook. They're on there with Grizzly Bear, Department of Eagles, Sleepy Sun, Eels, and others. It's really great, introduced me to a lot of new stuff, including this inexplicable, brilliant group.
Would anyone care to enlighten me on why Burial Sounds has such a lead over the other songs? Free download somewhere out there? Not that I'm complaining or anything! Also: http://www.undertheradarmag.com/interviews/the_phantom_band It's kinda old but I just read it.
HELP ANDY TO FIND HIS 'DESIGNER'-JUMPER BACK: Stolen Jumper Hunter - win prizes for your detective skills! On Saturday night someone, in an act of sheer drunken malevolence, stole my jumper from Sleazys in Glasgow and I fuckin want it back. Its worth nothing to no one but me. The campaign to find it starts here, and you can help. There can only be one bright red sweatshirt bearing the word 'Designer' on the left breast (in writing similar to the Budweiser logo) in Glasgow or, in fact, in the whole of Scotland. Someone knows someone who has a friend who has suddenly started rocking this fantastic piece of tramp-wear. Get it off them (bribe them with sexual favours and the joy of phantom forgiveness) and return it to Sleazys on Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow "FAO The Hot Club / The Phantom Band", then email us to say you have done so. You shall then be rewarded with phantom merchandises of your choice (within reason).
