Phantom Planet is an alternative rock band from Southern California. The band consists of vocalist-rhythm guitarist Alex Greenwald, lead
guitarist Darren Robinson, bassist Sam Farrar and drummer Jeff Conrad. The band is best known for its track "California", which became the
theme song for the Fox TV series, The O.C.. While the band is often mentioned as the group that featured actor Jason Schwartzman on drums,
they have continued on in his absence and have released a number of well-received albums. On November 25, 2008, the band announced in a
blog entry on their website that they are going on "hiatus, and will not be playing any more live shows or making any new records, indefinitely."
They played their last show on December 12, 2008, in Los Angeles.
