Phantoms Flyer for gig#32

A pleasing crowd & one of the most enjoyable gigs we have ever done! After a great set from our ever present support act, The Woodcut Process (now featuring 4 original songs!), the Phantoms took to the stage (to the sounds of ‘Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ – it was 40 years ago today! Well, yesterday actually!) for their first public appearance of 2007. A large crowd had gathered (apart from our so-called ‘Road Crew’, who spent the whole gig in the front bar drinking and talking to girls!) with the promise of 4½ brand new songs on offer and the band didn’t disappoint! The first set went down well, the second went down a storm! All the new songs received a rousing reception and the opening drum riff of ‘Chelsea Dagger’ saw (heard!) the buoyant crowd in exceptionally fine voice! From the band’s point of view it was probably one of our best ever gigs, slightly let down by the fact that the sound man had no idea how to work the pub’s fantastic new PA & mixing desk! The pre gig publicity promised the ‘Phantoms bare all’! Well, as it turned out, thankfully only Simon bared his knees! P.S. If you were the ‘Long Blonde’ standing in the middle of the crowd and are interested in being the Phant’s next ‘Poster Girl’ please get in touch!!

The Phantoms were: Mark Gibson (lead vocals), Paul Castle (bass & vocals), Simon White (guitar), Brian Spencer (guitar & vocals), Jon Novice (keyboards & guitar) & Alun Westoll (drums & vocals).
