Presence just finished to record a new Album (never thaught of that to happen given Baccinis solo efforts)
(I hope this one will be stronger than "Evil Rose" their overall weakest Album)

L 'Estate di San Martino will have a new album to celebrate their 40th anniversary.

Played this band on SPACE PIRATE RADIO.  Loved it.  Both albums.  I commend your good taste.


Sadly, Mr Guden, I can only take half that praise! While that first album is very precious to me, I have great difficulty liking the second one! That wailing female vocal really gets under my skin! However, clearly I'm the one with the issues, because everyone else in here seems to love it!

Lucky you getting to see Sensations' Fix and Mr Falsini! My name in here isn't purely for show - I literally am in Australia, which is hardly the hub of prog (Italian or otherwise!) appreciation!
 
Please my friend, you deserve full credit.  I understand your preference of the first album over the second.  What I need to share is the luxury of having had a radio show:  One can pick and choose.  Taking this song from here... and mixing it with this one from there.  I have many, many, many albums by artists that are hard to listen in their entirety.  But if selections are made and segues created, some marvelous musical moments are created. 
 
Franco's concerts were quickly put together and alas, clash in previous scheduling of Magma.  This will probably be the second time in a year span that I will be unable to attend.  So Cry I share.
 
My best to you in Australia.

That makes me kind of sad....

Hahaha, H, the album that keeps coming back to haunt us!

But the question is...is the music any good?

Listening to this clip, some of it does sound quite interesting in little moments:



Regretfully, I now also see that they don't appear to be wearing shorts, rather...paint?!

FUTURO ANTICO
Futuro Antico

LABEL: Black Sweat Records
GENRE: Electronic    FORMAT: CD | CATALOG N. BS010-CD | YEAR. (2014)

Finally repressed on CD this obscure gem of the italian project Futuro Antico, released just on tape in 1980, this record contains the hypnotic session ofWalter Maioli (Aktuala) and Riccardo Sinigaglia. Analog and warm sounds, a perfect mix of drone synth and ancient flutes (found in oriental countries) gives you the idea to fly on a spaceship towards some exotic sites. This recor terribly remember the astonishing live Köln jam of Terry Riley and Don Cherry, the comparison fits! Limited edition of 300 copies, this reissue maintains the first tape artwork + info and photos in the inner.

Thomas I hear you about Prowlers......and RanestRane is another decent band who gets relatively little buzz. 

I never had the Foglie album....but I'm checking out the videos on their webpage and it is nice!Smile
Oh how we've fallen
