About The Phantom Four
The Phantom Four & The Arguido is a collaboration between instrumental surfband The Phantom Four and Rudeboy (former vocalist of the Urban Dance Squad and Junkie XL).
Late 2007 Rudeboy witnesses a show of The Phantom Four for the first time. The gig makes a lasting impression on him. When a year later The Phantom Four asks him if he wants to sing one song on their new (otherwise instrumental) album they enter the studio together. They actually record two songs together and are so enthusiastic about the outcome that they decide to perform them live. From the summer of 2009 Rudeboy regularly does guest performances with The Phantom Four. Gradually new songs with Rudeboy are being added to the mainly instrumental live sets of The Phantom Four. On July 23rd 2010 The Phantom Four & Rudeboy perform their first full live set together and from that night on continue their cooperation under the name of The Phantom Four & The Arguido. Because the new album of The Phantom Four has not been released yet they decide to release two albums; the new fully instrumental album of The Phantom Four and the debut album of The Phantom Four & The Arguido. These albums will be released as a double cd early 2011. Later that year both albums will be released on vinyl individually.
