INFO: New York's Phantom Tollbooth was more like a thrash-inflected version of Fred Frith's Massacre than anything else. Various art-rock influences - quick tempo shifts, the occasional jazzy swing and the use of noise as a genuine musical element (rather than a cheap way to telegraph rage or intensity) - gave these guys away
Phantom Tollbooth was a post-punk/noise rock band from New York City. They played a style of post punk that included elements from jazz, noise rock, and art rock. This allowed Phantom Tollbooth to make sudden starts, stops, and tempo changes in their music. All of their albums were released in a four-year window between 1984 and 1988 on Homestead Records.
referencing Beard Of Lightning, CD, Album, Off 995. I wanted to hear this version of Phantom Tollbooth's 'Power Toy' LP for some years and I accept the limitations of Dave Rick's vocals on all 3 Phantom Tollbooth LPs, but I suppose after listening to the original LP for the last 15 years, the reworkings are pretty disappointing. It's not just the vocals that present a problem; the entire feel of Beard of Lightning just doesn't sit right. The energy has been whittled out of the tracks in an attempt to make it more approachable
Includes FREE MP3 version of this album. Pollard succeeds in making Phantom Tollbooth a bit more approachable without turning them into a pop band; a scuzzy art rock-fuzz still lingers, and the Captain Beefheart allusion in the above-mentioned "Mascara Snakes" is certainly apt, though they sound even closer to a more surreal version of the Minutemen. But like the man himself, it's an unlikely success.
