a nice overview of some key players in the Italian underground Experimental/.Electronic home recording scene of the 1980's.
The reason why alot of the material may sound like the same artist is during this time period many of this genre used similar equipment that came out during this time drum machines, effects pedals analogue ,synths, echos ects.... sign of the times type thing. it was similar in many others countries too within the genre. some of the more well known on here are still working today : M.B. ,Die Form (I think?),... not for all tastes for sure . I like this stuff though

This is the proverbial "weird album." Not only is the music of poor quality even for electronic experimental it also sounds like it has been done by one 'creative outfit' performing (if you can call it that) under a whole bunch of different names pretending to be many different bands when they are just one band or maybe even just one person with a multitrack. Some of this stuff is like listening to examples of stuff you do before you get it right-beats that don't fit together serving as a back beat just plain sounds bad. Some of the material suggests there is the potentiality for better work but this is not realized on the album-in my opinion. Some fans of alternative music might think the CD is "cool' but I don't think it is. It has more in common with a plate of spilled food on a linoleum floor that anything "artsy" or "alternative." Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I suppose. A lot of people thought that 'The Velvet Underground' had a rough and unpolished sound to them. The VU were a lot better than this.

Cancer's "Naonian Style" on this release is not the original version; it has been remixed with a ton of additional reverb.
