Phantom Slasher

There are instants when you are tempted to buy a record at face value, i.e. on the rather tenuous basis of the sleeve. Luckily, apart from the outrageous jacket, Phantom Slasher's latest outing also delivers the musical goodies. Probably The Idjut Boys in one of their disguises, Gruble contains mostly more of what surely must be the ultimate music to fit the Zeitgeist, that is: it mixes up dubbed-out disco with space guitars. Those who cannot regularly appreciate a healthy dose of disco kitsch, should avoid this record at all costs. Lindstrøm and Prins Thomas likers and lovers on the other hand will know where to find it.
