Boomkat Product Review:
**Absolutely vital vinyl reissue of this disturbing, iconic album from 1981 - a haunting miasmah of extreme noise, fragmented drum machine erosions and power electronics that sound more relevant today than ever before** This pioneering recording from Italian industrial noise Godfather Maurizio Bianchi is just about as crucial as they come. Originally issued on vinyl in 1981, Bianchi was seen to be part of the same noisy power-electronics as Whitehouse, but what's important to realise is not only that he was coming from somewhere totally different but that his music was frankly a lot more developed. Probably closer to Nurse With Wound or the grittier side of Throbbing Gristle, Bianchi used a mixture of synthesizer parts and tape loops to create a very early representation of the sort of music that would, over time, metamorphose into what we so often hear today from the US noise set (Prurient, Can't, Hair Police, BxC et al). Hearing this classic recording now is a revelation, it links perfectly not only to the industrial and noise-based recordings of the time but also to the new-wave movement that's been so endlessly mined in recent years, the sort of recordings you'd expect to see emerging on the Creel Pone re-issue label or from the mind of the German synthesizer pioneers. Incredibly dark material from beginning to end - this is an absolutely essential purchase for any of you with a penchant for the darker ened of the electronic/noise movements - it's just as good as it gets. Essential Purchase.
