A history of the band (in Dutch), but with great photos and record scans is HERE.
Also, from the liner notes for Beat Express #1 (The great 10 inch series from Op-Art Records):
Band members were lead guitarist Ad v.d. Ven; bass player Wally Soute, founder of the Phantoms Ronald v.d.Horst (guit), drummer Fred Grundlach and Marty van Rooy (voc). The band achieved national fame with “I’ll Go Crazy,” which got to number 11 on the hit parade, followed by “Tormented,” which only got to 25. They even managed to release a true LP that, like the singles, appeared on Omega Records.The Phantoms were regularly seen on TV (Tienerama) and even performed in Belgium for the program “Tienerklanken.”
Listen to the nice melodic dutch beat of Tormented below.
