Phantom Planet is a groovy pop band that is finally claiming some much deserved fame. They think very highly of themselves for a once struggling band from California, but pretty teenaged boys usually do. The girls flock. The ladies swoon. Of course they have egos!

The band first began in the way many boy bands do… in the junior high and early high school years by Jason Schwartzman (Max Fischer in Rushmore) with his friends, Alex Greenwald (known for singing in the early “Dress You Up in My Love” GAP commercials), Jacques Brautbar, Darren Robinson, and Sam Farra. However, this isn’t a typical “boy band”. Some of their main influences and idols include the Beatles, Beach Boys, ELO, and Queen. They have opened for Weezer, Morrissey, and Sloan, while also gathering the attention of many teenage girls on the Sunset Strip. Their first album was entitled The Planet Is Missing, a very clever title for a very catchy sound. They have now finished recording their second full length album that can be expected for release in early 2002.
