Phil 'n the Blanks were a new wave band from the early 80s. Charaterized by upbeat pop melodies and quirky, but intelligent lyrics, they were popular at venues across the Midwest and the East Coast. Their forays into music video predated the big-budget productions from bands later in the decade, yet their low-budget, often humorous productions received regular airplay in the early days of MTV. The band has reunited for single performances (usually private) in recent years.

A compilation DVD of all the Phil 'n' the Blanks videos was released in 2009.
