In Between The Silence (2003)

ZOO's third album of original material was recorded during the summer of 2003. Instead of hiring a studio and engineer, this time ZOO recorded and arranged the material on their own digital recording equipment at their rehearsal studios in Nottingham.

"In Between the Silence" contains 12 tracks of exceptional beauty, quality and variety. More details can be found at the dedicated project web site, here. The CD costs £10; visit the ZOO shop to order a copy

Discovery of Land (2002) (EP)

In April 2002, ZOO returned to Peterborough's Five Mile High Studio, and engineer Andy Hawkins, to record their second CD "Discovery of Land". Recording and mixing were spread over four days, allowing greater experimentation and attention to detail. The resulting four-track CD was launched at gigs in Nottingham in July 2002, and can be purchased for £5 from the ZOO shop.
