Militia - Dunarobba #1990

MILITIA is an Italian post-punk/alternative rock from Perugia. MILITIA was born officially in late ‘82 when a post-punk band called STRANGE MILITIA, formed in 1979 (before as LO NOIZE), disbanded. Founder members: Dario Bavicchi (keyboards, electronics, guitar and vocals), Fabrizio Croce (rhythms, electronics and vocals) and Giovanni Romualdi (guitars). Bass players were, in chronological appearance, Augusto Croce (late founder of AIDONS LA NORVEGE), Nicoletta Vinti (late in London with THE PASSIONS and with TRANSGLOBAL UNDERGROUND original line-up), Claudio Castrini, Andrea Conversano (a long-time member of the band), Arlo Bigazzi (solo-artist and founder of Materiali Sonori Label) and Aroldo Toccaceli. Without a bass player the three remaining members are still continuing in 2006 as open line-up featuring part-time collaborators.
The live activity of MILITIA was developed between 1984 and 1992 with tours in Germany and in Holland and concerts all over Italy; they performed in the most representative italian clubs and billed in the most important festivals of that period, contributing to start an italian “new-wave” scene. During their career they received sincere appreciation worldwide. At the end of the ‘80’s MILITIA started a partnership with Materiali Sonori label, the oldest italian “indie”. Two records will be produced with this important label: Dunarobba and Elvengamello.
The first part of the MILITIA career is signed by a classical wave production, dark atmospheres and really energetic post-punk bases. With the Dunarobba record starts an experimental itinerary that it will continue until the last works.
Since 1996 MILITIA started also to work for avant-garde theatre, cinema and visual arts.

Fru-Aut - Fru-Aut (demotape) #1985

Demotape del 1985 per i FRU AUT di Bassano del Grappa.
Capitanati da Uber Cavalli (ex militante nelle fila dei bizzarri conterranei PLASTICOST) affiancato da Matteo Balanc, Gigi Cavalli, Vinicio Mazzini, Gino Morello e Gianni Nichele. Un lato A con un frizzante post-punk tinteggiato da una vaga psichedelia lisergica per approdare a un lato B sperimentale ed esoterico. Dopo questo tape realizzarono un mlp 1988 per la torinese Toast Records e nel 1994 l'album A sangue freddo.

Zu - Bromio #1999

ZU, an all-instrumental Italian band (Massimo Pupillo on bass, Jacopo Battaglia on drums, Luca Mai on saxophone, and, on the first album, Roy Paci on trumpet), played some of the most adventurous post-rock music at the turn of the century, occasionally evoking the legendary LAST EXIT with Sharrock's guitar replaced by Pupillo's bass.

They fine-tuned their aesthetics through a series of theatrical soundtracks ("Vladimir Majakovskj", "Il Funambolo", "Histoire du Rock'n'Roll", "Octavia") and eventually debuted with Bromio (Wide, 1999) in a wild, loud and fast style that harked back to the heydays of jazzcore (SACCHARINE TRUST, UNIVERSAL CONGRESS, THE EX). They simultaneously sprayed bits of funk onto their convoluted mix in the manner of THE CONTORTIONS (Detonatore) and launched into gargantuan free-jazz fanfares (Xenitis, Asmodeo). Their tone runs the gamut from brainy (the hiccupping Testa di cane) to droll (the vaudeville-like Zu circus). The interplay is both geometrical and intricate, as best displayed in the frenzied Erotomane. While most compositions stick to a unitary core with little or no movement, La grande madre delle bestie ends the album with a transition from chaotic partying to melancholy introspection. Each of these short pieces is a strike at the core of prog-rock. By the standards of jazz-rock, this is harsh and jarring music.

Bologna Violenta - Uno bianca #2014

Uno bianca is the fourth BOLOGNA VIOLENTA's full lenght album, out on February 2014 thanks to Woodworm, Wallace Records and Dischi Bervisti.
This concept album is based on the crimes of the “Banda della Uno Bianca”, a gang formed by five policemen and a civilian operating in the Bologna area (from 1987 to 1994), which made more than hundred crimes, killing twenty four people and wounding more than hundred.
The gang's name is taken from the type of car used for the crimes, a white Fiat Uno, very popular in Italy in those years.
The gang, led by Savi brothers, has always been known for the brutality of its operations that didn't save the lives of those who was between criminals and their purpose. The album goes over twenty-seven steps in its criminal history, a sort of imaginary soundtrack of the gang's worst crimes against gas stations, motorway tollbooths, banks and supermarkets.
Uno bianca is characterized by extreme sounds, made even more dramatic by the massive use of string orchestras. The song form is completely abandoned, the track structures are modeled on the progress of events, as reported by the procedural acts.
BOLOGNA VIOLENTA wants to pay homage to the city of Bologna, telling through music one of his most violent stories ever. He does it with an extremely dark album, in which the death bell rings to remember the tragedy and madness of those times.

Lightning Bolt - John Peel session #2004

Easily the best release from this band, as it's basically better versions of all their best songs. It was from a show in early 2005, so it's between Wonderful rainbow and Hypermagic mountain, and you can hear how there's early versions of a few Hypermagic mountain songs on here (tracks 2, 5, and the ending of track 4).

The studio albums have a hard time capturing them with this kind of intensity. Brian and Brian add so much more energy to the tracks in the live setting than they could ever possibly do in the studio. The climaxes are all amplified and songs flow into each other seamlessly in perfect fashion, often while they are in full noisy apocalypse mode. You can hear just how many hours these two guys have obviously been jamming together to become this tight with each other.

Squadra Omega - Materia Oscura #2017

SQUADRA OMEGA is one of the bands which best represents the vast spectrum of the Italian underground. Psychedelic, avant-garde, jazz-rock, improvisation, kraut-rock, rock in opposition and ethno-tribalism blend seamlessly into the work of a collective that moves and expands depending on the urgency of the moment, focused around a core that rotates around the two members OmegaMatt and OmegaG8. In the band's wide discography we find compositional freedom, improvised jam-sessions in and a amplitude of references, all of which move between different spaces and times.

Materia Oscura (Dark matter) offers a glimpse at the same time the soil of the "rock" matter as well as the alien, seen from multiple points of view, neighbors and materials distant and mysterious. Three tracks that stretch their eyes at Orient or Africa as well as into the depths of the cosmos, landing on the side of the art-rock of the '70s and towards some psychedelic, visionary, cinematic drives then explode into a real ecstatic trip. Inputs from Coltrane, Canterburian jazz-rock, GRATEFUL DEAD and Synthy-Space views are melted into free-form landings until they discover their own personal form of prog. Different Universes collide and coexist in the band in a constant mutation, maintaining faith in one single ideal: "music for the third eye”.

Gli Avvoltoi - Questa notte (7") #1987

Il progetto musicale degli AVVOLTOI nasce a Bologna nel 1986, evoluzione diretta dei MISTER MAT & THE BABY'S MIND dei musicisti Claudio Spirogi e Moreno Spirogi, quando con l’abilità tecnica di Umberto Palazzo e godendo della collaborazione, tra gli altri, di Mimo Rash, batterista degli ALLISON RUN, viene registrato il primo singolo della band di stampo puramente beat ed è tale la peculiarità mostrata, che nel 1987 la Toast di Giulio Tedeschi pubblica il loro 7" con il titolo Questa notte, contenente tre brani.
