The Pantographs are Gwynne Duncan on Flute,Liz Pierson on violin Alec Stephen on Vocals and guitar,Julie Wolf on Cello. The band formed in 2000, Alec having taken a break from RAILROAD JERK, started working up some local country tunes with his friends in the neighborhood. Playing local place's such as Pete's candystore,CBGB's Gallery,The Cooler and Sonny's in Red hook,the Pantographs harvested an unusual woody string sound that attracted attention. If you lick to pick your teeth to Tom Waits,Robyn Hitchcock,Nick Drake and Elliot Smith, this album is for you. NYC CRASHING IN Review: Pantographs: State Land: This is the sophomore album from the Pantographs. Alec Stephen heads this band with Gwynne Duncan and Liz Pierson. Alec sings in the vain of a happy go lucky Irish folk gypsy sucking on some good ole Irish whiskey and singing his lullabies. His songs take the subject matters about life's day-to-day duties ('Three Doors Down'), happy times ('Perfect Picture'), troubled souls ('Lee'), and love ('Wish I Knew'). It sounds like Alec has had a good life and will continue to do so take a listen and discover how music is better than any book that you'll ever read. 'Alec Stephen's second LP brings you to unexpected heights of virtue within sound and color leaving you perhaps cheated but happy !' Lolee Worms The FIRST self titled Pantographs album will also be available at CD Baby soon so now's your chance to start the collection !
