The Godfather of Italian underground electronic music. Such an incredible body of work spanned out over four decades. Still producing and releasing and still as compelling as ever.

It's poor music. It is not enough to put Auschwitz or Treblinka in a title to legitimize so little emotion, so little empathy, so little talent. Shostakovich, without using such sinister titles, has given by the scale of his genius, his culture and his music the dimension of this tragedy. I find in MB's slack and pretentious DIY, the recovery of the Holocaust very unwelcome. It is not enough to turn on your amphigorous electronic hardware to make art.

i do not want to listen to his music, it's too industrial FOR ME.
Christopherson's lyric "...Crush'd from the Shoulder...", from his song about Pasolini, echoes in mye COIL'd mynde as i gayze upon the countenance of Bianchi (the "Whyte" one?).
i know little of this music, and yes, it is music, as is all sound said to be so.
this paved the way for GNAW THEIR TONGUES, who have made a career and illustrious discography by sourcing everyone else's hard-earned at-least-partially-acoustically-recorded records thru tricked-out playback equipment, mostly with only one or two facile treatments being relied upon --like immoderate reverb applications or cassette deck pitch-dial abuse-- to utterly appropriate (and possibly reinvigorate) the contents and, with relatively little alteration, plagiaristically call it their own.
But do they really OWN the results?
Yes, according to the army of collectors and, even more importantly, the LIKERS of both GNAW THEIR TONGUES and BIANCHI; yes because the treated results are more Liked than the material they larcenously sourced thru their creatively anemic playback equipment-cum-postmodern-meta-instrument.
In the Netherlands GNAW.. is easily bested by JOEL VAN DROOGENBROECK as BIANCHI is by great grandpa RUSSOLO in Italia...however, the winner of this contest of quality is moot because it is GNAW.. and BIANCHI who claim a supremacy of relevancy evident from their sponsorship; curatorial and consumer interest, number of releases and versions thereof; How heartlessly, dehumanizingly Industrial of them to succeed effortlessly --Literally Effortlessly-- while the "everyone" they solipsistically appropriate sucks the eggs of Effort.
