The Phantom Band Announce UK 2014 Autumn Tour

If there's a song on The Phantom Band's brilliant third record, Strange Friend (released earlier this year on Chemikal Underground) to most explicitly typify the Glaswegians' return to the base rock elements that underpin their artfully skewed sound, then it's the driving rhythms and subtle-anthemia of new single, 'Clapshot'.

Named after a dish from the Orkney Islands in Scotland of mashed neeps and tatties - the accompanying video for the single was made by artists Graeme Roger & Kevin Reid  for The Royal Scottish Academy / Morton Award for Lens Based work.  Roger & Reid look at eccentrics and oddballs for inspiration, so no surprise they got such wonderful results with a Phantom Band song, and they make theatrical, impromptu films and performances.  Historical sites feature in their films and this video was shot on location at Fyvie Castle in Aberdeenshire.
