ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
San Francisco gadfly Jeff Wagner returns with menacing atmospheres and crunchy shards of joy. This third Tunnel of Love release is actually designed to stimulate the primitive, reptilian part of your brain! Absolutely guaranteed to fill you with sorrow, lust, and giddy fear.


Praise for UNDERNEATH ARE PHANTOMS:

"San Francisco genius Jeff Wagner returns with a new exciting album.."Underneath are Phantoms" is the perfect successor to "2AM in the Tunnel of Love". Warm, romantic, dark, seductive, evil...The '40s film Noir atmosphere is always present, like a soundtrack to the films of that age, re-interpreted by the Jesus & Mary Chain!"
- Polimeno Paride, STILLBORN (ITALIAN WEBZINE)

"Throw the Cramps, Phantom Limbs, Make Up, Ennio Morricone, Nick Cave and The Birthday Party in to a jigger and shake violently, pour over the cubed frozen blood of Phaedra... Searing guitars, evil organ, chunky Barry Adamson bass, and desperate soulful male vocs. This is great. And you can quote me on that."
- Your Imaginary Friend, KZSU ZOOKEEPER ONLINE

"The Wagner works are impressively bloodshot, but also quite vicious, and after the opening preamble of dark noise the howling trashabilly of "Your Throat" sees how the vocals have become more refined and the keyboards more effectively cooled, and it's simply a slinky, seductive monster...You really ought to start collecting his records now..."
- Mick Mercer, UK journalist/author (MELODY MAKER, "Hex Files", etc.)

"Fractured pop experiments that would not be out of place next to Cheer-Accident, perhaps. In fact, I think a triple-bill of Cheer-Ax, Flaming Fire, and Tunnel of Love would be sufficient to completely befuddle any unprepared mainstream audience. Good, weird stuff, sixteen songs worth (to be fair, some songs are just short introductions or instrumental passages, but even those are pretty interesting); catchy and listenable while still being wildly unpredictable and surprisingly fresh."
- RKF, DEAD ANGEL

Wagner's 4th is Closer to the Mark
Obviously I wasn't alone. UaP cuts back Wagner's vox a bit, and though his singing is the same, you get a little more of the music. Throw in the instrumental tracks on this weird little cardboard box full of creepy and you get something that strikes me as a getting a little closer to what Wagner is trying to say with his whole "thing". What's next from this self-styled Bay-area Wunderkind with the Orson Welles look and the Nick-Cave-covers-Dean-Martin voice? Someone sign me up for the newsletter, because I want to know.
