^ Hmmmmmmm.........Damn I think you're right. Although I seem to recall some keys adding very small parts and textures, there's no actual keyboard "playing", so I guess you're right.

Question time guys!

Can you think of any RPI bands that do NOT use keyboards? The RPI group is currently evaluating a band called Lineateorica, who do not use keyboards, and it got me thinking - I'm sure I've encountered this before, but just can't work out which bands!!

Can anyone please suggest some?


Omg ya got me, buddy. Have not a freakin' clue.
I think it's safe to say that the best RPI bands that I've come across for my listening tastes all use keyboard/synths.
It's just human nature.
Hope your feeling better as well, my friend. I recommend a good dose of GOBLIN followed by half a bottle of nightquil.

Fabulous album! Kind of buried in all the 1972 RPI amazement, but it's one I dig out regularly.

By the way, La Coscienza di Zeno's excellent debut album was recently reissued by Fading (it was originally on Mellow). I think the mastering is the same, but they've added two bonus tracks and repackaged it in a very nice mini lp format! Not a digipack--a high quality mini lp. And the bonus tracks are quite good, not on par with the rest of the album, but still quite good. I think they're outtakes from the album. Available with Greg Walker at Synphonic, among other places, if interested!

I can only think of one instance of keys on that masterpiece debut--check out the mellotron here at about 1:24. One of my favorite hooks on that album. Boy do I love that album!

A very good album (much better than their second), which I liked
so much that I rebought this new issue.

The two Bonus tracks were released before on two different COLOSSUS/Musea themed compilations.

^ Ah H, I knew I could count on you! 

I agree that the first album is lots better than the second. I hope they can recapture the magic if they have another.

Also like you, I bought the reissue just to have the mini lp format. I didn't know about the bonus tracks. And now that you mention the compilations, I checked my cds and see that they come from Decameron and the Tales of HP Lovecraft. Good call!!

Sorry Todd, I missed your reply.

But yes, in all of 1972s splendour and vivaciousness, sometimes it's these rare little gems that sadly are overlooked. I am listening to it yet again as we speak, and it is just wonderful. I love the vast gaps there are between soft almost whispering classical music, to the all out prog rock zooming out of this thing!

Another one of my favourite Italians, whom I spin a lot, is Franco Battiato. How do you feel about ol Franco, Todd? Those first four albums of his hold a very special place in my heart. Clic, in particular, for being such a late bloomer:-)

I posted this one on my poll   two weeks ago with no success .Shocked It's an old american  psychedelic folk friend, languishing and mesmerizing,  somewhere between Batiiato, Sorrenti and Capuano. Enjoy.

Is that a gimmick art work or what?

The album cover is modelled on a box of Total Cereal.

Tom, this album usually gets bashed by the RPI fans (and rated very low here). I agree it's not a symphonic prog album but more of an energetic crazy jam, but is it good? Yep I think it really is!

Battiato is one of those artists that has been kind of evasive for me--meaning, whenever I listen, I think it's okay but don't quite understand all the fuss. Zappa is another one. I have Battiato's first four albums and another later one, but they don't hit that special level for me. Yet. Sometimes a flower takes time to bloom!
