Happy Birthday Derek Phillips

Post by Jake » Fri Jun 24, 2005 8:04 am

Cheers to the birthday boy!

To celebrate, here are a couple of lo-fi mp3s from his early garage band, the Vantrells. They were britpoppy and pretty until they recruited wildman guitarist, Matt Southwell, who allowed them to realize their Jammy power pop dreams.

The Vantrells - Bus Stop (the pretty)
The Vantrells - Rocket Trip (the rock)

FYI: By "Jammy" I mean like the Jam, not like jam bands.
