This track is off the new and quite excellent EP ‘Dead Men’s Clothes ‘ by The Phantom Cowboys. Very cool mix of of different types of billy music. Get ready to hit that repeat button, fun stuff.
a little history:
The Phantom Cowboys were formed in Norwich in 1994 and immediately defied easy categorization with their unique mix of rockabilly, jazz, punk and sinister pop music. Throughout their career, the band has consisted of Lord Emsworth on the guitar and vocals, Rob on bass, Megz on guitar and The Serpent on drums.
Their 1998 debut album, “Down and Out at The Club Cruella” was an instant cult favourite amongst fans of the sinsiter and stylish. It remains widely downloaded and played on Internet radio worldwide.

After splitting up in 1999, the band remained a favourite for fans of retro and vintage-flavoured music on either side of the Atlantic, being featured on Anagram Record’s 2007 retrospective of the UK nineties psychobilly scene, and Skully Records influential ‘Gothabilly’ compilation series in the US.
