Super Furry Animals were one of the first post-alternative bands, fusing together a number of disparate musical genres – including power pop, punk rock, techno, and progressive rock – creating a
shimmering, melodic, irreverent, and wilfully artsy rock & roll.

Produced by the band, ‘Phantom Power’, celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2023, keeps a much lower profile than the band’s previous work. The album, for the most part, is awash with pedal steel, acoustic guitars and vocal harmonies. But if you think the
creative juices have ceased, you could barely be more wrong. Gruff Rhys songwriting moves a step forward on ‘Phantom Power’, with playful story-based lyrics about turtles, mingers, ninjas and cabbages contrasting with lines about death, radiation and war.

This 2LP heavyweight black vinyl deluxe reissue, with original artwork and die-cut sleeve, has been carefully remastered from the mixdown tapes and includes liner notes from the album’s executive producer Kurt Stern.
