Make sure you get one of the oversized Tentacles Group Photos (20x30 cm) for your empty, cold walls! Hey - look at those happy faces!

Another great item is the Tentacles Compilation CD! It is a browseable Photo-CD with pictures from Tentacles 2000-2004 + extra goodies!

While you there make sure to order our fund-raisers Ybot 4 & Ybot 5 as well!

We are excited to announce that John Hughes himself is taking over the role as editor for our fund-raiser Ybot 6!

John will use his cutting-edge editing and layout skills to manufacture a veritable gem. O mother of beauty!

What am I talking about? Have a look at 'Moonrites' - his latest work for the Tribe.
