Binky Philips


Binky Philips, a life long New York babyboomer, was born a few years before Elvis changed everything. Permanently ruined by The Beatles on Ed Sullivan, Binky has devoted his life to the noise made by larynxes and electric guitars. He spent the 70s and 80s performing, writing, and recording his own songs in the semi-legendary CBGB/Max's Kansas City band, The Planets. For the last three decades, Binky has run East Village records stores, done radio promotion for every major record label's Rock and Alternative acts, ran his own indie record label, Dotpointperiod. Binky Philips is also the author of "My Life in the Ghost of Planets - The Story of a CBGB Almost-Was" available at Rhino Entertainment. He can be reached at
