Check out the Substack article by Jen B. Larsen on Micky Metts, Guitar and Vocals of the Phantoms. Jen is also the author of a must-read book titled: "Hit Girls". The craftily titled anthology is an homage to female led PUNK bands in the late 70s and early 80s. There is a chapter on The Phantoms in her book, and a keen article on Jen in HuckMag.

Now... the music that was unearthed and wrenched from the dirt floor of a cellar on the fringes of Boston dubbed "Club One" are some live recordings that were salvaged after the after-party. 

You ask yourself, "why now" Nah, you do not ask any questions, yet we have some of the answers. Obfuscated Agitation combined with a "what next?" look.

Strange and Rare - Cover Song by The Phantoms

Green Manalishi - 3.2 MB : Bass/Vocals - David Jay : Guitar - Micky Metts : Drums - Angelo Aversa
The Phantoms were not known for 'cover' songs - they had so many original tunes, covers were not really an option. In 1980, they added 3 covers to their set list, Shapes of Things - Yardbirds, We Gotta Get Outta This Place - The Animals and... Direct from the secret vault comes a very rare cover of a Fleetwood Mac song by Peter Green. This is the early Phantoms as a 3-piece.
