Semiramis (2)

Semiramis was an Italian progressive rock band who produced one LP in 1973, "Dedicato a Frazz". Both the cover and the music have been described as bizarre and surrealist.

The band was formed in 1970 by Maurizio Zarrillo (keyboards) and the two cousins Marcello Reddavide (bass) and Memmo Pulvano (drums). They were all 15-years old. Two years later they were joined by 16 year old Michele Zarrillo who substituted former singer Maurizio Macioce. They played in some live open-air concerts in Rome until Pulvano left and drummer Paolo Faenza joined them. Giampiero Artegiani joined them also on keyboards in 1973.

Their unique album was released in 1973 with little success. After the band split up, Michele Zarrillo joined a later incarnation of Il Rovescio Della Medaglia. In the 1980s he began a solo career as a pop music singer.
