SLIM JIM PHANTOM Australia Tour with FIREBALLS!


Nightmare Music are proud to announce the return of 
SLIM JIM PHANTOM this June 2014. Slim Jim Phantom continues to inspire and excite audiences worldwide; with a sound, style and image that remains as fresh today as it ever was, Phantom has cemented his place among rock royalty. Considered by many as the coolest drummer in rock n roll, Phantom’s influence is still clearly felt on today’s music scene with countless rockabilly drummers imitating his pioneering stand-up style.
 
Joining him on the upcoming tour is Australian psychobilly band, 
FIREBALLS. Fireballs, fiercely independent and unpredictable, have been in full rockin' psychosis since 1989, smashing out 4 cult records and wowing crowds in Australia, Japan and Europe. "We're looking forward to an awesome bunch of shows. Slim Jim is an inspiration... History writes itself. This is gonna be awesome fun. WrecknRoll" said drummer/vocalist Eddie Fury. "If it aint hyper, it ain't us." (Fireballs will not be appearing at the QLD shows).
 
Slim Jim Phantom has secured his place as a true rock n roll icon. As the legendary drummer for the Stray Cats Phantom, alongside band mates Brian Setzer and Lee Rocker, spearheaded the neo-rockabilly movement of the early 80s. With a love for 50s rock n roll the Stray Cats took inspiration from the bygone era and mixed with their youthful energy and aggression produced the updated hard-edged rockabilly sound that saw them conquer London, Europe and later the US, gaining fans among the likes of Keith Richards, Mick Jagger and Robert Plant along the way.

 
By the late 70s Jim was playing in bands with school friend and bassist Lee Rocker and they soon joined forces with guitarist Brian Setzer. The rest as they say is history. During downtime from the Stray Cats Jim has worked with some of the world’s top artists and has played a part in many successful groups; notably “Phantom, Rocker and Slick” featuring guitarist Earl Slick which produced two popular albums, “The Swing Cats” featuring guitar ace Danny B Harvey and “Dead Men Walking” an all-star affair which boasted original members of The Sex Pistols, The Cult and Big Country among the line-up. Jim also enjoyed a stint playing with The Killer, rock n roll originator, Jerry Lee Lewis.
