Special guests include Bryan Beller, Amandine Ferrari & Ola Ollson among others. Included in the 6 panel fold-out CD sleeve are Phi’s exclusive personal liner notes detailing some of the creative processes behind each track. MORE INFO PRICE £10
Dance With The Anima (with Marco Minnemann) CD A mesmerizing ‘film score’ style album of dazzling 70's jazz rock fusion, 60's cinematic themes, epic progressive rock melodies, dramatic classical moods and psychedelic guitar virtuosity skillfully composed to Marco Minnemann's live unedited 51 minute ‘Normalizer 2’ drum solo. Critically acclaimed as ‘so brilliantly performed and written’ and as a ‘must-have album’, the music has been described by many as evoking the spirit of Frank Zappa in its beauty and complexity. Also featuring the musically dynamic and spellbinding keyboard performances of Lalle Larsson. Included in the 6 panel fold-out CD sleeve are Phi’s personal liner notes reflecting on some of the underlying metaphoric inspirations behind each track. MORE INFO PRICE £10

Worlds Beyond Cause CD The seriously seriously intense debut album from Phi Yaan-Zek (under a different name), with warp-driven guitars, twisted odd meter techno, hyperactive metal rhythms, alienized soundscapes and a most distinctive ‘Jazz From Hell' attitude. Originally released in 1997 after two and a half years locked away in a world of dedicated musical experimentation and self-discovery, the result was certainly a bold move away from the predictable instrumental album genre of the time, with a sound at times similar to Mr Bungle's more sinister moments mixed with Buckethead at his most odd. Dark, experimental, mesmerising and innovative, this album occupies its own unique sound world - one that you are unlikely to hear anywhere else! MORE INFO PRICE £8
