Crashing out of the gates with a delectable roar on its debut CD, Phoebus
is Washington D.C.'s most rocking power trio.
We're talking Phoebus the band, not Pheobus the man, who not
coincidentally can be found front and center, a low-slung Les Paul hanging
off his shoulder, words flying out of his mouth (from the heart and the
gut) and slamming into the microphone.
This is not mellow make-out music. This is not the quiet storm. This is
gale-force hurricane music, music that takes the best rock from the past
three decades--from Zep to Husker Du, Cheap Trick to the Ramones, Skynyrd
to Nirvana--and distills it into a sonic blast loaded with melody and
Pay attention! I'm talking about Phoebus.
The son of a Greek diplomat, Phoebus Spiliotopoulos benefited from
having an older brother who was music editor of the George Washington
University newspaper. As he rifled through stacks of his brothers vinyl, he
garnered a musical education starting with classes in Miles Davis and
Weather Report before heading down the hall for Zepplin and Aerosmith
tutorials, and finally soaking up the lessons of the Clash, the Sex Pistols
and the Buzzcocks.
But Phoebus couldn't sit and listen very long.
He picked up his brother's guitar and taught himself to play "Smoke on
the Water," and that was that.
At Yorktown High, in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington D.C.,
Phoebus created Freakbaby (featuring current Phoebus drummer Scott Frey), a
band of youngsters whose name you might have read in some magazine
somewhere, because the kid who replaced Phoebus on guitar when Phoebus
moved on to form another band was Dave Grohl. Yep, the future Foo Fighter
hadn't yet shown the world his drumming chops, and was rocking out on
guitar, just like he is now.
A few bands later, Phoebus and Scott (a rhythmic powerhouse you have to
see to believe) and bassist Jim McNabb are the trio Phoebus.
Vaya con dios, boys. The world is yours for the conquering.
