#15. The Hand & Spear,
At last, after 2 cancellations, our first gig of
2004! The Phantoms proved they really were 'too loud for Weybridge' when
they blew the power at the pre gig sound check! But, after some
ingenious re-wiring, over 100 of the faithful turned up in the middle of
nowhere (unless you live in Weybridge!) to witness the band see Helen
off in style. The Phantoms delivered a faultless (well, nearly!) 2
sets packed full of old classics with 3 brand new favourites to an ever
appreciative crowd of Phantom regulars and strange dancing locals in
fancy dress! (You'll know what I mean if you were there).
The Phantoms were: Mark Gibson (lead
vocals), Helen Baden (lead vocals), Paul Castle (bass & vocals),
Simon White (guitar), Brian
Spencer (guitar & vocals), Jon Novice (keyboards) & Alun Westoll
(drums & vocals).
