The Phantom Chords - Unreleased album


the following info is from http://www.wikipedia.org/ ."Following the 1989 breakup of The Damned, Vanian, guitarist Roman Jugg and bassist Bryn Merrick formed the Phantom Chords with Brendan Moon (guitar) and Clyde Dempsey (drums). In 1990, the debut single by the band ("Johnny remember me", a cover of a Geoff Goddard song) was released in the UK.
However, although an 11-track album (including "Johnny Remember Me") was written, and Polydor planned to release it, this did not happen, and only two one-sided acetates of it exist."
this was a great band who i had the pleasure of seeing live at the borderline in london in about 1994ish and a great gig it was.they played a lot of their original stuff and if memory serves me correctly a damned cover or two.so now its time for you all to listen,enjoy and leave a comment.thanks!
p.s ive also included the 'b-sides' from the 12" johnny remember me for you all to enjoy!

This is a better rip than the one I had before, so cheers for that. DV re-recorded a bulk of this album in 2001 with a completely different line up in LA, but that recording never surfaced either. An interesting side note is there is also a bootleg copy of an early (and very muddy) mix of the Big Beat album featuring different basslines on some tracks and an altogether different recording of Big Town.

Thanks!!! I have been trying to find these recordings for a long time. "Big Beat Presents..." is one of my favourite albums, so if anyone has any info on where to find the "alternate" recordings mentioned by "Anonymous"....
Anyway, thanks again.

i actually have the bootleg that Anonymous of the big beat album, it is very muddy and hard to hear. Its on cassette so has soon has i can ill get it ripped for you guys.

I know that dave recorded some of the unreleased album again in l.a. around 1992 with brain setzer playing guitar. he wanted a more rockabilly feel.
