Matthew Bourne An album of reassuring madness. Elements of Vai at his most playful in the Flexible days!! Love all the different cultural notes and references and of course the big nod to Zappa. Superb!!!! Favorite track: Mister Phi.

about

Prepare yourself for a crazy guitar-driven whirlwind tour through mystical prog rock, demented jazz metal, flipped-out fusion, otherworldly odd meter electronica, hyper-shred freakout solos, evocative ethno-flavours and psychedelic soundscapes! This is the long-awaited re-release of Phi Yaan-Zek's most eccentric 2nd album "Anomalies". Newly remastered and remixed, this special 10th Anniversary edition features 3 bonus tunes not on the original release. Originally released in 1997, "Anomalies" is a highly enjoyable and original journey through Phi's earliest guitar-based instrumental recordings from the 1990s, which recalls at times the most playful elements of Frank Zappa, Mike Keneally and early Steve Vai.

Joining Phi on this fun and daring musical adventure is a line-up of exceptional musicians including ace UK drummer Andy Edwards (Robert Plant, IQ, Frost*), former Robert Plant bassist Mark Hartley and renowned piano/keyboard virtuoso Lalle Larsson (Karmakanic, Electrocution 250). Throw in Phi's explosive guitar playing and compositional prowess into the mix and you have a guitar instrumental adventure like no other!
