#63. Nightmare Before Xmas Party, The Shed, Feltham. 8.11.13.

Nightmare Before Xmas Flyer.


Another top evening. The fireworks were great & the music that followed was even better. The Phantoms (plus fellow stable mates 'The Woodcut Process', 'Fused' & the eagerly awaited return of 'The Mighty Shed') all did a great job in entertaining the eclectic crowd in this great new venue. The Phantoms Halloween themed set went down a storm with the phans who made the most of the ample floor space to try out some very impressive dance moves! Not only did the punters look amazing in their spooky Halloween fancy dress & face paint, but all the Phantoms went for it too! The eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed something odd about our bass player or simply thought he had done a great job with his Uncle Fester costume, but unfortunately, it wasn’t Nov! At the last minute our usual bass player had had to pull out due to a bad back (old git!) but thankfully was replaced by mate of the band, ‘42nd Street’s Paul Read. Massive thanks to Paul for stepping in at the 11th hour & doing such a great job. Fused then had the unenviable task of following the Phants but were magnificent in closing the night, with their brilliant cover of Jacko’s ‘Thriller’ a particular highlight. I think that’s how it went but after an evening of vast amounts of hugely intoxicating pomegranate, melon & parsnip home brew (amongst others!), as I write this it’s all a little hazy! But I am sure the night really was a thriller!

The Phantoms were: Mark Gibson (lead vocals), Kevin Rogers (guitar), Jason Biggs (guitar & vocals), Paul Read (bass) & Alun Westoll (drums & vocals).
