In 1984, the MONUMENTS, consisting of Andrea Costa and Mauro Tavella from Torino, Italy, released their only official record, a mini LP called “Age” comprising six incredibly fantastic electropop tracks. Anna ever thought of this mini LP as being the best electropop record ever coming out of Italy. Unfortunately, the duo didn’t make it any further under the name of MONUMENTS, though even to this very day they follow their careers as composers, studio owners and explorers of electronic music. Anyway, the MONUMENTS were already formed in 1981 and a couple of demos were recorded which never saw the light of day, but were only given to a few friends. Their nature is a bit more rough and never drift towards the more commercial Italo synth pop. So what you get on this CD is indeed an essential retrospective compilation album of one of Italy’s pioneering underground electronic music acts. And while Andrea and Mauro want to close this chapter with this release, a project entitled MONUMENTS II is maybe on its way …
