Phantoms: The Rise of Deathrock from the LA Punk Scene

ByMikey Bean

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
When drummer Don Bolles was sacked from LA punk band the Germs he was already a member of Vox Pop, girlfriend Mary was quickly becoming 'Dinah Cancer' and their horror-punk band 45 Grave was in its infant stages. Around the same time bands like the A-Sexuals, the Decadent and Speed Queens would soon become Christian Death and Super Heroines. Add to this the early incarnations of Kommunity FK, Nervous Gender and Voodoo Church, plus Castration Squad, Aphotic Culture and Die Schlaflosen, along with Radio Werewolf, Ex VoTo, Screams for Tina and a host of others... The roots of the Los Angeles deathrock scene, an integral part of the later goth movement were starting to take shape. Phantoms relays this previously unheard story, told in the oral history style through extensive interviews band members, scenesters, photographers and club-/label-owners.
