Swan's band, answering to the names of Archie, Jeffrey and Harold. Swan constantly reforms their look 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]].

--> You know, it just seems like yesterday I found Annette in that church choir. I got her singin' lessons, I taught her how to dress, I got her her first club job, and I paid of a columnist-- he did a beautiful story on her; I told her who to be nice to, who to [[PrecisionFStrike fuck]], fed her the drugs to get her through the road tours... ''I'' made her record a hit! Then I sold her to you; you made her the biggest thing in rock. So ''now'' what does she do? She fires us, cancels her Vegas date, and she wants to give free concerts to starving Gook orphans. She was more than a piece to me! She was the light of my life! Now she's gone. {{Beat}} We sued her. We couldn't lose, we had her in an ironclad contract; it was a lock, it was over, it was closed. I even bribed the judge! He ruled against us, said we couldn't sign anyone to a life contract. He said we were a disgrace to the profession. A disgrace, he said! ''I'' was the one who made her the money-grubbing whore that she was, and he calls ''me'' a disgrace!
