Bruno Nicolai Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
The 2009 film Amer is made by hardcore fans of Italian horror movie history, so naturally they really went to town on the soundtrack, using sounds by 70’s cult composer legends Stelvio Cipriani and Bruno Nicolai. Oh, and Ennio Morricone himself! Plus some ‘tension loops’ in the wax. 500 copies only, on We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want.
The Night Evelyn Came Out Of The Grave is a vintage slice of Giallo horror, and as everyone knows, Giallo films come with excellent weirdo soundtracks. This one is no exception! Bruno Nicolai has an orchestra and a wild jazz ensemble at his disposal, plus Edda Dell’Orso’s vocals and some swish electronics. Double LP reissue, pressed to clear blue and clear red vinyl.
Vintage Giallo soundtrack goodness from the dramatic world of early 70’s Italy. The Case Of The Scorpion’s Tail is a tale of spooky murder, and Bruno Nicolai accompanies it beautifully with a mixture of high avant-drama and sweeping orchestral melodicism. This is the first ever release of the entire soundtrack, spread over two LPs on the Death Waltz label.
Bruno Nicolai is one of the notable names of the Italian soundtrack world, and also worked closely with the biggest: Ennio Morricone himself. But 1975’s Tempo sospeso (‘Suspended Time’) is all his own work. It's a highly dramatic suite of electric fuzz action, positively dripping with character. LP reissue with new artwork and a postcard, on Cinedelic.
Bruno Nicolai’s soundtrack to 70’s Italian thriller Eyeball is giallo all the way: catchy and culty and fun. The most remarkable thing about this release though has to be the design of the vinyl: a full-blown red and white splatter with a massive eyeball comprising the central label! Beautiful. On Dagored.
Bruno Nicolai conducted for soundtrack master Morricone from For A Few Dollars More and then many more pieces. He was also a composer in his own right, recording many soundtracks in the 1960s and 70s, almost becoming as prolific as his maestro. The soundtrack for The Red Queen Kills Seven Times is a first class example of his work in the giallo genre. On vinyl with exclusive artwork. Dagored.
Freshly re-issues with brand new artwork, Finders Keepers are pleased to unveil a new pressing of this classic soundtrack now with previously unreleased tracks.These hard-hitting left-field psychedelic pop themes are regarded by many Euro horror video collectors as some of the best of the well mined genre. Nicolai balances psychotic free jazz, bass driven beats, eccentric Eastern motifs and childlike lullabies into his themes covering all bases and very much comparable to the work of Fabio Frizzi, Goblin and Walter Rizzati.
