Baffo Banfi biography
Giuseppe Banfi, former keyboardist of Un Biglietto per l'Inferno started a solo career with an album in 1978. His own musical style is deeply inspired by the visionary sounds of Kosmische electronic music from Berlin. It features gorgeous spaced out synthesised soundscapes and floating minimal melodies. After the release of Galaxy my dear (1978), he published Ma, dolce vita (1979) and Hearth (1981) on Schulze's label, Innovative Communication.

Galaxy My Dear
Baffo Banfi Progressive Electronic

Review by Dobermensch

3 stars Another one of those guys who sounds nothing like the band he just exited. Baffo Banfi - one time member of 'Biglietto per l'Inferno' released this album in 1978.

'Galaxy my Dear' sounds incredibly like a cross between Edgar Froese and Klaus Schulze circa 1975 which isn't a bad thing at all. Full of old school Berlin electronics from the outset, this will please Tangerine Dream and Schulze fans via 74-77. There's very little wrong with 'Galaxy My Dear' other than the fact that it sports the most dreadful artwork (what the hell's going on with those dungarees?) That and the fact that it sounds like downright plagiarism.

Admittedly the album was made with acknowledgment to Klaus Schulze who he considered his one major influence on the creation of this recording. Fair enough...

Anyway, this is a damn sight better than the other Schulze copycat 'Edelbert von Deyen' from the same era who's artwork was excellent but who's music was utter pants.

There are one or two ropey, rather cheesy moments involving the choice of keyboard sound along with an attempt to duplicate almost outright, Edgar Froese's 'Aqua' side 2, which sends things back to 1973. A bit directionless, certainly nothing ground-breaking, but overall not bad. Recommended to you hardcore Berlin electronics folk out there.
