Disco Slasher

Phantom Slasher has been receiving much do appreciation for their recent release of Gruble, which is a double LP of fine obscure disco re-edits. Let's show some attention to a couple of their early releases. The first, 2001's End Up 12", which marked the first release for Dan Tyler & Conrad McDonnell under the Phantom Slasher aliases. The title track of this 12-inch single sounded like a disco jam out of the Shaft soundtrack, definately worth getting down to on a dancefloor. A few years later, Phantom Slasher released their first full-length LP, titled Puddle & Spout , which features one of my favorite Phantom Slasher tracks of all-time, entitled "Oochie Coochie". This 7 plus minute disco gem reminds me of what Prins Thomas must of been going for on his Major Swellings record. Even though I think Gruble is Phantom Slasher's strongest release to date, I believe their previous records are definately worth owning.

Love the site, but if you're going to say "definitely" in every post, please spell it correctly. :-)

Hope you can forgive me for mentioning it, but it's one of my pet hates...

While you're at it, due respect, not do respect. Also love the blog. I have you bookmarked and everything.

ha ha
misspelling of 'definitely' always gets me too... and those who write independent with an a :-)

but! came on here to say how super bad this tune is and thanks for posting.. does it really end like that?

also, any chance of reviving the archive/re-hosting the older tracks?

cheers! x
