The Phantom Cowboys were recently invited by online music magazine 50thirdand3rd to discuss the influences and stories behind the songs on their classic 1998 debut album, Down & Out at the Club Cruella.
We’ve finally launched our own YouTube channel. Long before The Phantom Cowboys reformed, people had begun sharing our material online (which by the way, as long as we get our royalties, we don’t mind!) However, now the band is active again we wanted to make sure you can get access to new material and footage as it becomes available.
Here’s a little preview for your listening and viewing pleasure:
Note: YouTube automatically creates an artist page for the band, using the tag #phantomcowboys. This is completely separate from the bands channel and we cannot control the content or even add links to our material! So don’t be fooled, subscribe now to our official channel to get exclusive updates and new Phantoms material!
As it’s the festive season, it was decided we should attempt to record a yuletide number to share with our friends around the world.
So here’s our Christmas card to you all – our very own arrangement of the traditional carol God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen:
This was recorded at the last Phantom Cowboys rehearsal of 2015 in about 20 minutes, using tracks recorded by a phone and a mac using the onboard mic! We managed to splice the tracks together to miraculously create what you can hear here.
So don’t be too judgemental – it’s just a bit of festive fun! (You might be able to guess that we didn’t waste time looking up the lyrics either).
Finally , a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all our friends and supporters around the world. We look forward to seeing you all in 2016!
Rob, Megz, The Serpent & Lord Emsworth.
