Nothing is stable, everything is usually on the brink of collapse, yet Phobophobes have
dragged their weird and dark psychedelic rock into the light of their recent debut album,
Miniature World. Their influences are widespread – and atypical – with the music closer to the
spirit of apocalyptic garage rock than it is to consumer pop. Think Wall of Voodoo, Nick
Cave and The Birthday Party via Monthy Python and The Magic Roundabout. Jamie Taylor
and Chris OC, both south Londoners, founded the band in 2013. The intervening years have
played out anything but smoothly, and what they bring you is just as chaotic.
