Holyfuckinghell, THE PHANTOM LIMBS are playing in LA again?!?!?!?!!?! FYI: The Phantom Limbs are a post-punk/deathrock band formed in Oakland, CA in 1999. The group combined the unusual keyboard-driven compositions of Stevenson Sedgwick with an aggressive, punk-influenced rhythm section and a very odd singer, Loto 'Hopeless' Ball, whose howled lyrics and unpredictable stage behavior quickly gained them an infamous reputation in the SF Bay Area. They were quickly approached by Sam Atakra of the fledgling Atakra records label, which released their first 3-song 7", featuring their seminal "Hot Knives and Hornets."With critical acclaim for their live shows and 7" recordings, the group was approached by Jello Biafra of the Dead Kennedys and were signed to his seminal label, Alternative Tentacles, on the spot. After seeing the band at 924 Gilman St in Berkeley, he declared them the strangest band that he had ever see there, let alone that the punks actually liked.

Not to be confused with a defunct punk rock band, Amy Zing, Aislinn Harvey, and Eric Saxby hail from Oakland and are actually very nice people who hardly ever enact their elaborate plans of revenge.
