My New Job

For those of you who are curious about my life after the ILC disaster, here is the official press release.


San Clemente, CA – Phantasm Imports is proud to announce that it will begin to
distribute small American independent record labels in addition to its unique import
catalogue. The first group of labels signed to Phantasm include Dr. Strange, Gern
Blandsten, Gravity, Hawthorne St., Little Black Cloud, Magic Bullet, and New Red

Although Phantasm has only been in business for three years, the company has already
had an impressive impact on retail, distributing over 150,000 titles from their state of
the art warehouse in San Clemente. Until this point, Phantasm specialized in providing

imports in every musical genre from all major companies abroad; with the addition of the
domestic division, the company is set to conquer new corners of the musical market.

Longtime industry veteran Tracy Wilson has been brought on-board to head the
new distribution division, and with her brings over 15 years of record industry sales
experience at companies such as Caroline, Fontana and ILC. Says Wilson about joining
forces with Phantasm, “I am thrilled to work with such an expansive import catalog and
have the opportunity to marry that wealth of diversity to our now exclusive American
label roster. I may be a music industry veteran but I am still very much a music fan
at heart. I get to work with labels and bands I deeply respect (Rorschach, This Will
Destroy You, Government Issue, The Rapture, Life & Times, Social Unrest, Runhild
Gammelsaeter to name a few) no less alongside incredibly passionate and experienced
people who love music as much as I do. I’m home.”

Phantasm’s success and subsequent expansion in the current economic climate is no
coincidence. The company employs a wealth of talent and expertise with employees
combined having over 100 years of experience in the music business, and each an expert
in their specific field. Says owner Alistair Richards, “We have been looking for more
items to complement our import catalog, and are very excited at carrying these labels.
We will be actively looking for new labels as we seek to expand our offering. We believe
we are in a good place to make these labels work especially with the addition of Tracy
Wilson to our team.”
