Quando Gli Uomini Armarono La Clava E... Con Le Donne Fecero Din-Don


Quando Gli Uomini Armarono La Clava E... Con Le Donne Fecero Din-Don (aka "When Women Played Ding-Dong") is a 1971 movie, directed by Bruno Corbucci. In prehistoric times, two tribes -- the Cavemen, who live on the mainland, and the Aquamanni, who live on stilts -- are almost always fighting with each other. During a period of peace, the young Ari, head of the Cavemen, wins, in battle with the Acquamanni, one of their virgins, Listra, with whom, however, he barely has time to entertain himself since immediately a new one contention breaks out between the two tribes. Although the fake-prehistoric setting and the title that refers to the two Pasquale Festa Campanile films set to music by Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicolai, this Corbucci film has nothing to do with those productions. Giancarlo Chiaramello, author of several scores for cinema and television has composed a pleasant score based on the recurring main theme "Troglomen" performed in the main titles by the Turin-based progressive rock band Gli Aluminogeni which derives from the surname of the leader and singer, Patrizio Alluminio. This song was printed in stereo on the A side of the single. For the first time ever, Beat Records release all the background music score taken from the master in mono of the original session kept in the Beat Record archives and the song of the single in stereo with a total duration of almost 76 minutes (including takes not used in the film). Funny themes alternate with other rhythmic ones with distorted electric guitars with a rock -- beat flavor for battle scenes, with a recurring love theme with a lounge flavor, with ethnic atmospheres. The chorus of Nora Orlandi performs in numerous tracks of this fun soundtrack that CFS and BEAT have absolutely wanted to restore and preserve on CD. Co-produced by Claudio Fuiano and Daniele De Gemini for CFSoundtracks and Beat Records editing/mastering by Enrico De Gemini and Claudio Fuiano.
