The Phantom Four & The Arguido
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 all musicians 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 since that night 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 spring 2011. Later that year both albums will be released on vinyl individually. A 7” vinyl single with 'Gun On My Temple' and 'A Forest' was released on January 8th 2011.
The Phantom Four
Phantom Frank conquered The Netherlands with surfband The Treble Spankers in the late 90's. In the slipstream of the success of Pulp Fiction the band scored an airplayhit with Red Hot Navigator, played all major festivals in The Netherlands and sold 25.000 albums. Since 2005 Phantom Frank plays all over The Netherlands with his new band The Phantom Four. Early in it's existence the band becomes resident band of the “Noodlanding” at Paradiso and “Surf's Up” at the Melkweg. The band opens for bands like Dick Dale, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, G. Love & Special Sauce, and plays at major festivals like Lowlands and Paaspop. They quickly build a reputation as one of the best surfbands of The Netherlands, complete two Spanish tours and play Belgium, Germany and the UK.
“Arguido, normally translated "named suspect" or "formal suspect", is a status in Portuguese language legal systems, including the legal systems of Portugal and Mozambique. It is given to a person whom the authorities suspect may have committed an offence. This designation does not exist in certain other jurisdictions. In a criminal investigation a person has to be declared an arguido prior to being arrested. Portuguese law makes a distinction between arguido and suspect.”
