SaCka biography
SACKA was the acronymous name for the band from the nicknames of its memebers (Steo, Alby, Coje, Koppy, Ale). The band played in Italy between 1996 and 2001, and in 2000 opened the Steve Hackett's concert at Vigevano Prog Rock Festival, with the mexican prog band CAST. After our album "Lontano nel tempo" we had some trouble in continuing our path along the pure progressive sound. Now SACKA has changed its name (GAETANO SPIAVA) and some fellows in the crew. Keeping its roots in the prog-jazz-rock attitude. If you want to listen to the latest things we're doing you can go to www.gaetanospiava.com site, where you wil found under the tag "suoni" the new releases made to prepare the next album.

3 stars One-shot Italian obscurity Sacka hailed from Torino and performed in Italian ground since 1996.Their only private release ''Lontano nel Tempo'' came out in 1999, distributed by Kaliphonia Records and recorded with 70's techniques in just a couple of days.The members used pseudonyms such as Steo (guitar), Alby (vocals), Coje (bass), Koppy (drums) and Ale (keyboards).

The album is split in 17 pieces ranging from just a few seconds to 8 minutes long.The short tracks either function as introduction pieces or feature narrations of little interest to those not familiar with the Italian language.The longer ones (over 5 minutes long, just 7 in number) are good examples of Italian Symphonic Rock surrounded by an energetic and almost jazzy at times rhythm section.Influenced by Classic 70's acts such BANCO DEL MUTUO SOCCORSO, PFM and AREA, the band delivers a very vintage-sounding style with a nice exchange between dynamic and smoother offerings.Lovely, melodic flutes, calm piano interludes and expressive vocals form the more retro face of the band, producing nice and melodic Symphonic Rock.But there is also plenty of instrumental breakouts in here with powerful guitars, deep bass and strong keyboard solos, with the interplays being numerous and complicated almost in a Prog Fusion style, absolutely professional and fascinating stuff.What is not professional is definitely the rather poor recording quality, which prevents the album from being a highly recommended release.

The biggest moment for the band came in 2000 with Sacka opening along with Cast for Steve Hackett's concert at Vigevano Prog Rock Festival.This was unfortunately one of the last experiences for Sacka, who later changed their name to Gaetano Spiava, playing in a more Jazz-Rock style after some line-up changes.

''Lontano nel Tempo'' is another fine example of an Italian band trying succesfully to recapture the atmosphere of 70's Italian Prog.And despite not being the easiest CD to be found in the market, it deserves certainly some hunting.Recommended.

2 stars Vintage RPI album from late 90-s. In fact, it sounds as successful demo from early 70-s. Even if symphonic component is important, there are enough jazz-rock element in album's music to make it alive and not too chamber.

To be honest, music isn't complex, and mix is really raw ( biggest problem is with vocals). Songs sound as great raw material for possible compositions. But album, with all this negative moments, is melodic, brightly symphonic, warm and well-rounded ( even if speaking about demo-quality)

Possibly, not a recording for regular listener, but RPI collectors could really find some their moments there on this album.

3 stars Now that's what I call classic progressive rock from the 70s...except it's from 1999 ! The music sounds fresh and very dynamic and creative. I can hear some influences on the Jethro Tull side but this is more in the Italian progressive school. I think that what I like about the music are the keyboards which blend perfectly with the rest. What a nice discovery !

2 stars This was a very lucky demo tape, actually... So we're glad to all the people around the world who continues to listen to our old effort. We were so proud about it! We recorded it in two days, on analogic tapes, without metronomic timing, as in the seventies!!!

SACKA was the acronymous name for the band from the nicknames of its memebers (Steo, Alby, Coje, Koppy, Ale). The band played in Italy between 1996 and 2001, and in 2000 opened the Steve Hackett's concert at Vigevano Prog Rock Festival, with the mexican prog band CAST. After our album "Lontano nel tempo" we had some trouble in continuing our path along the pure progressive sound. Now SACKA has changed its name (GAETANO SPIAVA) and some fellows in the crew.

4 stars Well this is another surprise, that is a recent issue from an Italian band living in Turin (North West Italy), in the vein of bands such as AUFKLARUNG or DEUS EX MACHINA, which performed at " Vigevano Prog Fest" (along with AFTER CRYING and CAST on 1999) a kind of symphonic progressive with elements of Jazz ( AREA-like)... a good interpretation of such retro-style, with a few derivative moments and discontinuous parts as well. Recommended!!
