West London's favourite undead grinders tip the hundred gig marker with a pulsing night of floor stompers at the iconic Half Moon in Putney. A venue that has seen some of the biggest names in rock and pop came alive once again in the skeletal hands of The Phantoms. The five man band resurrected the best of British music with tunes from The Who, The Clash, David Bowie and The Beatles.
Hailing from Feltham in West London, The Phantoms (originally called ‘The Pheltham Phantoms’) formed in the summer of 2000. Since then they have prowled the dark corners of music venues in West London and beyond with their spectral musicality. In 2002 they attained the coveted accolade of ‘Best Band in the Civil Service’.
Ten years ago the band’s original guitarist, Brian, tragically took his own life so the night had special significance with all proceeds from ticket sales for this gig going to The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), the leading movement against male suicide in the UK.
