— First review of this album —
4 stars INSTANT DRONE FACTORY is hailing from the German Mannheim region and driven by two guitarists Frank Gingeleit and Andrea Tabacco. 'Ho Avuto Paura Del Mare' marks the band's second studio album, and the most prolific if you ask me. Just have a look at the line-up - it immediately attracts attention that two experienced musicians from Japan are involved too, speaking of bassist Rie Miyazaki (Marble Sheep, Mammal Machine) and drummer Morihide Sawadia (Marble Sheep). So this leads to the assumption that they are able to offer something challenging music-wise, you bet! Well, not for everyone though, as the band is underway with avantgarde tinged krautrock.

And so Andrea Tabacco appears with rather excentric vocal management all the way through, which is alternating between scream, recitative and singing, in parts spirtually akin to Amon Düül's Renate Knaup-Krötenschwanz, I would say. Ain't Nobody opens suspense-packed. You can hear a releaxed jazzy piano but restless drums competing - something contradictive but definitely attractive - ultimately catching the attention - the guitars are taking a backseat here. This situation changes with the next song Put Down The Guns which bears a strong CAN flair due to the drums ... and the typical collaboration of both guitarists which stays for the rest of the album then.

The gloomy Out Of The Chaos shows a fantastic blend of soaring psychedelic guitars and shredding riffs, even coming close to a Greatful Dead or Byrds US westcoach style at the end. And then the furious Ghost Rider leads into the extended drawn-out title track which evolves with intriguing flair, again sensitive space guitar work is to state, surprsingly accessible and partially polyphonic vocals featuring Italian lyrics are offered this time. Thomas Hinkel serves some nice synth supplies in addition. Great spirit! They are following the Instant Composing principle - hard to believe that the songs evolved as a spontaneous arrangement in the studio, without any compositional framework given beforehand.

INSTANT DRONE FACTORY is another typical German neo krautrock project which refers to the 'good old days' without keeping it in that way. It may occur that the line-up will differ on live gigs, for the simple reason that the Japanese members aren't available at any time. 'Ho Avuto Paura Del Mare' represents a rather unconventional recording in any case. Though far away from simple noise or close-minded jam attitude, to make it clear, this is a highly recommendable effort which I really enjoy in the meanwhile. That means musicianship and production are flawless. If you like exceptional music and are able to make friends with the vocals in the end, nothing will stop you furthermore from being a fan of this album.

Thanks to Philippe Blache for the artist addition. and to rivertree for the last updates
