* Edited from a 3 hour live studio session, for two voices of two abominations, and two record players, "Stardust Memories" is a smooth, tender journey into the smooth, tender hearts of two smooth, tender, starlit abominations.
The cover art of this album, featuring a pre-rap Daniel Radcliffe and two smiling hounds, was designed especially by Stefan Sagmeister. Thanks Stef.
* To be read in the voice of Don La Fontaine
Dedicated to Simon Lilleker (who works down the works), with tenderness, and a smooth, glossy exterior.

Ergo Phizmiz dives down the rabbit hole back to his roots as the son of a working-men's club organist, and serves up five tracks of whirlwind-wizard disco-organ glory. Performed entirely on a Technics PCM Sound C300, and dedicated to that other disco-organ whirlwind-wizard Jacques Malchance of UpItUp Records (who once treated Ergo to a late night disco-organ performance in a Liverpool cellar), ORGANOFF is here to make you shake your feet and wiggle those digits into the long, black and white ivory night.
Recordings from 2012, when the artists worked at the mezzanine workshop otherwise known as Atelier Royale. An attempt to invoke the Boojum through noise making and heavy drinking, to counteract the dark forces emanating from below, proved fruitless and the artists were forced to abandon their residence.

Since her hiatus from the heady world of the music-business, chanteuse Celine Dion has taken the way of the gentle-person and thrown herself headlong into the Sport of Golf.
It is rumoured on the internet-world-land that, due to her 16 handicap, Celine will NEVER be able to become one of the world's top celebrity golfers.
Here at Ergo Phizmiz International Operations we disagree, and the aim of this release is to provide Celine with as much musical encouragement to improve her handicap and show the world of celebrity golf just what the woman with the golden voice is capable of behind a club.
CINEMACOLLAGES 3: ANIMIXION, in which Ergo Phizmiz takes a slice across the history of animation and sets their music and sound-designs ballroom dancing with one another.
Containing sound and music from the films of....
Like this? Why not dip into the heady world of Ergo Phizmiz's Cinemacollages 1 & 2?

Of all the wonderful facts and phenomena with which this world is packed, one of the most wondrous remains that Jeff Wayne, composer of the seminal intergalactic disco rock epic "The War of the Worlds", is an avid, and brilliant, tennis player.
The will to Sport clearly overcame Jeff's space-disco inclinations, and the poetry betwixt bat and ball that leaps across space at speeds up to 90mph soon won out. As you can see below. Jeff is the Tennis-Eagle on the right, and he truly deserves this trophy, as every avid exponent of Sport truly deserves this trophy.
To commemorate Jeff Wayne's involvement with the Sport of Tennis, Ergo Phizmiz has specially composed a series of Sport of Tennis themed compositions, to support, aid and celebrate Jeff Wayne's involvement with the Sport of Tennis.
Next in the annals of Sport, Music To Aid and Abet Celine Dion in her pursuit of the Sport of Golf.
