Swan's band, answering to the names of Archie, Jeffrey and Harold. Swan constantly reforms their band's look and name to match current trends, reusing them as leads and backup singers wherever necessary - partly to save money, but mainly to capitalize on their sheer malleability, as "Upholstery" demonstrated. [[spoiler: They end up as the only surviving characters apart from Phoenix by the end of the film]].

* TheDanza: Archie and Jeffrey are played by by Archie Hahn and Jeffrey Comanor. Harold was played by Peter Elbing, but this still counts as he went by the stage name Harold Oblong at the time (And was credited as such for this project.)

* AntiHero: Type IV, at least once he becomes the Phantom. Quite apart from his various attacks on the Juicy Fruits and Beef, he also garrotes an innocent spotlight operator so that Phoenix will be properly lit.
