Maz and the Phantasms
Maz & The Phantasms is the post-lockdown project of Catalan-Egyptian Mariam El Sadr and her musical accomplices based in Glasgow Southside. Inspired by surf guitars, Krautrock
noise, psych rock, dance music and an explosive punk attitude.
The band turned up with a bang in the Scottish live circuit in February 2022 picking up steam in both Glasgow and Edinburgh. Despite one single release, MATP has supported well-known touring bands such as Ghost Woman, Mandrake Handshake, Rudi Zygadlo and The Red Stains.
Seeking further thrills, MATP sold out their own self-curated warehouse gig/queer rave (Phantasmagsam) at Glasgow Autonomous Space, establishing themselves as proud purveyors of the wild and quirky underground party scene. Since then they’ve gigged extensively across the UK and Europe.
Intensely awkward three-handed post art-punk song and dance band from the North. Antifreeze to the windshield of your heart. The band have supported the likes of alt-punk weirdo royalty The Nightingales and pogo jazz heroes Blurt; “you’re guaranteed to be hopping out of your seat and asking strangers to dance” (Sputnik Music).
Da Quincey creates atonal freak-folk ambience guaranteed to blow your mind anytime. Don’t expect stage invasions, witty banter between songs, funny lyrics about trivial aspects of modern life. This is a very serious avant-forward, art-music-poetry-sound, comprehensible to only the most fashionable and intellectually advanced listeners. Da Quincey has never appeared on 6Music.
With live visuals by Steve McWade of the band called TV FACE! Plus Idiot Box DJs spinning post-punk, riot grrl, noise rock, alt hip-hop, art punk, garage rock, no wave all night!!
