The Sanco Loop: “Fort Phantom”

By: Jack Anderson

He may have spent some years in respite and his sound has certainly had a couple facelifts, but there’s no real point in doubting Peter Wagner’s nook in Austin, going back to the late ’90s. You’d never guess that the guy who cut his teeth on 6th Street playing Sonic Youth covers would be killing it in Americana these days but lo and behold, Wagner’s solo project-turned-five-piece The Sanco Loop is here to stay and as real as it gets.

The Sanco Loop’s 2017 self-titled album made a big impression on us here at KUTX and on their new single, the group worked with Grammy Winner Stuart Sullivan, who’s engineered everyone from Meat Puppets and Sublime to 13th Floor Elevators and Ian MacLagan. Catch The Sanco Loop this Saturday at Whip In and hunker down with “Fort Phantom”!
