From The Desk Of Phenomenal Handclap Band’s Sean Marquand: Nick Tosches’ “The Devil And Sonny Liston”

Phenomenal Handclap Band is the one that was never meant to be: an initially loose collective of musicians who wanted to stray away from the show circuit and focus on production. However, demand for PHB exploded following the release of hit single “15 To 20,” resulting in this diverse group of musicians stepping back into the spotlight for two albums, including the new Form & Control. We invited Sean Marquand, one of PHB’s founding members, to guest edit this week. Read our recent feature on the band here.

Marquand: This book makes Sonny Liston look like such a great guy. Nick Tosches also claims Liston took a fall in his first bout with Ali. I don’t know what the actual story is, but I choose to believe this book.
