Formed in September 1983, in Cuneo, Italy, Intolerance born when Luca Musso, Marco Marongiu and Paolo Chiotasso met. They were going to the conservatory, to the architecture department and to SMET (Study Of Electronic Music), place founded in 1964 by Enore Zaffiri and this helped them unite as well as creating a theoretic base for their music. With this line-up, they participated to the fist concert held in their surroundings allowed to beginners. Their musical influences were Suicide, Daf, Throbbing Gristle, the 60s/70s German electronic music, composers like Luciano Berio or Stockhausen and new wave / post punk music, but they were also influenced by architecture. After that Paolo left, the band was joined by Raffaella Risso on vocals and with this line-up they started the recordings of their first demo. Using a Roland JX-3P, a Roland Juno-106, a Roland Sh-101 and a Drumatrix TR-606, the band recorded nine tracks, which, thanks to Leonardo Borghese and to his Suoni Dal Profondo Nord label, were released on tape in 1985. Intolerance's first self named album musically was showing really well the two souls of the combo: melancholic new wave, thanks to Raffaella way of sing and cold German electronic, thanks to the robotic rhythms and cold atmospheres the guys were playing. This side was even enhanced when the guys were also singing replacing Raffaella's melodic style. About this, songs like "Noradrenalin", "Terminal State" were influenced by Suicide, while "Arwen" and the closing "Valentines" are more dreamy and melancholic. The story of the band continued with the participation to two fanzine's compilations (a split tape for Amen and a side of an LP for VM), where the band changed a bit their sound, increasing their fan base. At the end of the 80s they were starting a new life but sadly, few years later, Luca Musso died and Intolerance called it quits. After thirty years, thanks to Synthetic Shadows Records, you're able to listen to the nine tracks of the first demo and if you love 80s electronics, you won't be disappointed. You can check three tracks here:

The Intolerance born in September 1983 in Cuneo, a small town in the montains near Torino, by an idea of Luca Musso, Marco Marongiu and Paolo Chiotasso, all musicians orbiting around the various high school of music expecially SMET (electronic music studio in Torino) founded by Enore Zaffiri. At the vocals was Raffaella Risso. Their cultural landmarks and music influences were Suicide, DAF, Throbbing Gristle, German electronic music scene of the years '60s/'70s, composers as Luciano Berio/Stockhausen and the new international Post-Punk/New Wave scene of the period. The instrumentation used in the two first years of activity of the band (which is used in this album ) was Roland JX-3P, Roland Juno-106, Roland Sh-101 and Drumatrix TR-606. Between the end of 1983 and 1984 the band played in various venues and squat (as the historic Victor Charlie, in Pisa). In this period the band was menaged by Ivan Rosso and Leonardo Borghese, both 'semi-official' members of the band. The last one, Leonardo Borghese, was the "deus ex machina", founder of the independent label "Suoni dal Profondo Nord" (Notes from the Deep North), who produced the first Intolerance demo and other bands of the same town/area. Intolerance also appeared in split tape compilation enclosed on 'Amen' fanzine and "VM" compilation LP. At the end of the '80s the band split up.

After over 25 years, the music of this great italian Minimal-Synth band is finally available on vinyl!
