The Ant Band - A Light On The Hill

The Ant Band - A Light On The Hill

Celebrating Anthony Phillips' 70th Birthday

14 Anthony Phillips classics, reworked by 14 musicians from all over Germany in a virtual alliance called The Ant Band, plus special guest Steve Hackett.
Their album A Light on the Hill is not only a tribute to Anthony Phillips' complete musical oeuvre, but also a gift for his 70th birthday on 23 December 2021.
Half of The ANT BAND consists of musicians who had already met at the Anthony Phillips Event 2014, hosted by the German Genesis Fanclub. There they performed music by Anthony Phillips in various constellations - before the eyes and ears of the composer, who commented on each performance afterwards with his dry humour.
In February 2021, Tom Morgenstern, who was playing guitar in two different formations at the time, had started a call for this project in the "Homerecording" thread of the German Fanclub website-forum, which was intended to build on the success and great atmosphere of the fan club event. The response was astonishing, because in addition to the established forces, many musicians who could not be present at the event at the time, but who were now also on fire, came forward. In the end, Steve Hackett contributed a guitar solo and Anthony's archivist Jonathan Dann wrote the liner notes.
With this website special, we want to give you an understanding of the background and details of this project.
