I was a little scared by this one. Mainly ‘cause of the full frontal brain shot (still in head) on the cover. Don’t get me wrong. I like brains.

9/10 Phil Staff review, 10 October 2012

I was a little scared by this one. Mainly ‘cause of the full frontal brain shot (still in head) on the cover. Don’t get me wrong. I like brains. I’d be almost useless without mine, I just don’t want to to see one. EVER!

Anyway this is a reissue of a privately pressed LP from 1982 by the celebrated experimentalist Maurizio Bianchi. The original goes for about a million squid and seems ludicrously sought after so now is the time to get your experimental electronics with added brain.

It’s (unsurprisingly) a dark uncomfortable listen though you’d probably expect that given the artwork. Sombre synth melodies and layers of distorted fuzz are caking my ears in early ‘80s Italian industrial grimness. There’s a strange beauty to it all though and that’s why the record is still playing.

Surprisingly it’s not as hard work as I thought it would be. I feel like I’ve been transported back to an age of darkness where bad things happened regularly. Fortunately none of them are happening to me right now. Anyone who’s a fan of of early power electronics should check this out as it’s a thoroughly compelling listen.

Pressed in an edition of 199 copies and remastered for vinyl in a silk screened brained sleeve.
