I recently got back in touch, albeit virtually, with an old friend Mark Poole who is the singer and guitarist for an excellent band called The Phantom Six based in Morgantown, West Virginia, USA. Mark is a terrifically talented musician and now runs a recording studio called Zone 8. Mark has been involved in many amazing bands since the 1980s including Moon (which included the current members of The Phantom Six), and 63Eyes, whom I saw long ago but linger strongly in my cranium. They were a phenomenally tight post-punk outfit, and similarly, the collective musicianship of The Phantom Six is entirely formidable. Although they draw upon many rock, pop, and alternative touchstones they offer an original amalgam as a wholly credible alternative to autotuned mediocrity.
