About

ZANTi

Zanti is a brand new album & live project from pioneering music legends Anni Hogan & Derek Forbes

After a momentous magical meeting at SCI-FI LONDON film festival, Anni Hogan and Derek Forbes realised they had a lot more in common than their favourite sci-fi The Zanti Misfits!  A compelling combined musical history, Hogan’s success as Marc Almond’s MD & key collaborator in the 80s plus her work with a plethora of established alternative artists including Nick Cave, Barry Adamson & Wolfgang Flur fused with iconic bassist Derek Forbes success with Propaganda & Simple Minds resulting in a recent prestigious Ivor Novello award inspired the sonic pair to create ZANTi

Over the last 18 months Zanti wrote & recorded a cinematically inspired 8 track album at Parr Street studios in Liverpool with sound engineer Andrea ‘Ando’ Wright (Bunnymen, Brian Jonestown Massacre) & both Hogan & Forbes on singing, playing, writing & production duties.  A series of cinema inspired promotional films have been created for the album. 

The first ZANTi album Broken hearted city is out now on exclusive license to Downwards records.
