Phil Shoenfelt & Southern Cross

In the 1980s, Englishman Phil Shoenfelt was the guitarist, singer and main songwriter of the post-punk band KHMER ROUGE. While based in New York, Khmer Rouge toured the east coast supporting bands such as The Clash, The Gun Club, Alan Vega, Tom Verlaine, and Nico. Khmer Rouge also supported The Fall in the UK. After Phil went solo he supported Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds at concerts in London and Glasgow.

In 1994 Phil Shoenfelt did a tour in the Czech Republic with some local musicians who had learned his songs. On August 5th 1994 they played a concert at the legendary Prague pub “U Vystřelenýho Oka“. The new Live CD by PHIL SHOENFELT & SOUTHERN CROSS was recorded on the garden stage at the same pub on August 5th 2014, twenty years to the day after the first concert. The CD is called The Bell Ringer and it contains fourteen songs taken from various Phil Shoenfelt & Southern Cross albums. The title of the CD is ambiguous. Is it a wake-up call? An alarm bell for danger? Last orders in the pub? A final chance to do something in life? A sexual reference, even? This celebratory CD mixes high energy “dark wave” rock with melancholic ballads from different periods of the band’s career. It also contains two cover versions of Iggy Pop songs: “Open Up And Bleed” and “The Passenger”. The latter song is presented as a “fun” bonus track at the end of the main CD, and features three guest saxophone players from the Czech underground music scene.
