An obscure (but brilliant) Italian rock combo PHOENIX were founded in 1981 (after the disbandment of a rock project named Gruppo Studio Alternativo) by the three LORANDI brothers - Claudio (lead guitar, voices), Antonio (bass), Sergio (guitars) - and Silvano SILVA (drums, percussion), all of whom had been remarkably influenced by 70s British progressive rock scene (e.g. Genesis, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Jethro Tull, Gentle Giant, Van Der Graaf Generator). In 1986 they recruited Emilio ROSSI (keyboards) and their soundscape could get more symphonic. With the collaboration of many session musicians, they had recorded some material for releasing a medium, that had not seen the light of day until 2011.
PHOENIX were disbanded in 1998 and each member had performed in his own project. Upon April 15, 2007, a serious loss for them - the death of Claudio - started their plan of compiling previous material and releasing their album. Finally, "ThreeFour" could be released in 2011 under the moniker of PHOENIX AGAIN for the purpose of identification.
