I learned today from a review of La Porte Non Aperte's CD on the front page, which I'm going to listen to tonight, that RPI has been around for 400 years?!!!!!!! ShockedTongue
I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

Hmm. I sure like it. But give me Sulle Corde di Aries or Clic instead and I'm a happier man for it.

I love all the first 4 albums like I love sleep and food. Clic for it's cut-up vocal RIO harmonies - Sulle for it's worming electronic carousel music - Pollution for the Krautrock - and Fetus for it's charming naive folky feel.

Hey Linus. Have you heard Art Fleury yet?

I believe Pierre has provided some samples from their mad debut somewhere in this thread. Anyways, I remember you talking about crazy Italian music at some point, and I reckon this just may take the cake in regards to thatLOL

Jeebers! Don't know what to say. Some of it was stunningly beautiful. Chills! Some of it was horrendously weird. Chills!

Alright!  Just finished unit 1 level 1 of my Rosetta Stone Italian language course!  I am glad I started this.  I feel like I am giving my brain some seriously needed exercise!  LOL
