SPITTLE 977001 SPITTLE 977001

The Italian post-industrial scene, born in the early '80s, was one of the most creative and vibrant in the whole of Europe. Officine Schwartz, CCC CNC NCN, F:A.R, Giardini Di Marzo, Mauthausen Orchestra, Rosemary's Baby, Thelema and T.A.C. are just some of the Italian protagonists cited by Marcello Ambrosini in his work, Post-Industriale: La Scena Italiana Anni '80 ("Post-Industrial: The Italian Scene Of '80"). Italian post-industrial was an underground movement that sparked a whole generation of musicians and artists and has represented the Italian independent scene as one of the most varied and interesting in history. This volume of Marcello Ambrosini's writing will be accompanied by an original compilation on CD with nine tracks featuring, among others, Ain Soph, F: A.R., Mauthausen Orchestra, Sigillum S, T.A.C. and Tasaday. The choice of the artists included in the CD has been inspired by the chapters collected in the book, tracing the large part of the industrial sub-genre. 45 minutes of true Italian post-industrial music. Much room has been given to the first chapter "Prima Generazione Post-Industriale" ("First Post-Industrial Generation") due to the presence of absolutely influential names and side-projects inclined to the "do it yourself" aesthetics, like Luke X's Ah Nahm Inc. - featured in the CD compilation. As for the "Power Noise" chapter the choice has been easily afforded with Mauthausen Orchestra. This category is probably the one that left the most traces in past and present decades with many artists and labels influenced by the sounds. Back to the book the "Esoteric Way" is represented by masters, Ain Soph and Sigillum S, with a rare effort form Thee Tree Rings as well. A different matter with the bonus track, an exclusive performance from white noise maestro M.B., a contemporary signal recorded only a few years ago. Numerous names should have been picked up, but more than a manifesto, this compilation is meant as a tool for contemporary followers of "grey areas" and "extreme culture". NB: The book's text is in Italian.
