Another soundtrack that is begging for a re-release! Not my description but I feel like quoting this anonymous entry in full as it is pretty spot on:
"Here's a striking weird yet incredibly amazing work defying categorisation with psychedelic demented electro breaks / FX studio layered spooky effects / slightly funky moves / bizarre cosmic sounds / deep hypnotic creepy beats / weird analogue electronics / abstract piano, strings, organ & flute passages and quirky sinister motifs by the Italian mastermind of electronics Gianluigi Pezzera, the producer behind the "Frrrrrigidaire" Italian prog Lp. A miraculous and balanced mixing creating eerie organ soundscapes backed by spooky choral voices on ALLUCISERGICO, freaky and dark electronics synths on AGORAPHOBIA, mellow moog passages on BAILAMME, the hallucinated abstract martial beats of METAMARCIA, the gentle cosmic moves of FANTACOPULA, the FX'd echoed percussive and delirious LA GRANDE BOCCA. This electronic madness was the soundtrack for the first (and I'd say bizarre as well) movie by Antonio D'Agostino called "La cerimonia dei sensi", which had "Out off" as working title, starring the famous Italian hermaphrodite Eva Robin's, basically a story (or a story dreamed in a coma) of a prophet who comes back to the world in order to live Christ's life again facing all the differences occurred on the political and social Italian scene (!!) during the bloody dramatic 70s."
I feel so ashamed for not posting here more often that here are a few random good things I've stumbled upon recently, which ought to be of interest to some of you.
Hailing from Cleveland, Fashion Pimps And The Glamazons must have the coolest name around. They play some kind of atonal synth driven 'angular punk' kind of a cross between The Screamers and Servotron. As someone commented, this band definitely has the early 2000s thing down par.
Speaking of the 2000s, I came quite late on the Horse The Band-wagon, quite unexpectedly at Ierperfest (2015?) on the last leg of their neverending tours. They were all drunk and had someone dressed as an 80s tennis instructor playing triangle on stage. 'Nintendo-core' is the musical genre that they were coined with but I think it does not do justice to their songs which are quite good and diverse, albeit sometimes too drenched in irony for me. I thought this band was dead and, lo and behold, here's a new EP that popped up out of nowhere and which does not even appear on their official bandcamp.
My old friend Malek quoted this as Album of the year, so it probably is, right? Haven't had time to fully listen to it yet but their brand of hi-octane street punk is something I always enjoy, when done right.
Some ex-Funerot members playing traditional metal? Sign me up immediately! Love this.
