People… people, people, people. My most sincere apologies, this has been a somewhat crazy time in the World Of Me, mostly to do with other work that I actually get paid to do, and that coupled with some computer problems (ie a fucked mains lead for the laptop, which can mess up your entire weekend, trust me) has meant updates here haven’t been as prolifically forthcoming as I might’ve liked. So please bear with.
I think I can just find time tonight, though, to tell you about this, the third release from Italy’s No Static Recordings. Although I’m struggling a bit how to do so, because I’d like to NOT use the words ‘soaring’, ‘synth-tastic’ or ‘Italo’ in the review, yet without them it’s kind of hard to tell you what this sounds like.
Still, I think you might just have got the idea now, via some kind of weird word osmosis or something, so it only remains for me to stress that this instrumental cut ISN’T the Lou Reed cover you might be expecting, that it comes with an Ilya Santana remix plus bonus cut Some Like It Double, and that all three are utterly ace… in a soaring, synth-tastic Italo kinda way. Oops.
Out: This week
About: Well now, No Static do have a website and a Facebook page but there’s not a lot to see there at the moment. I can tell you that this is the work of two Italian disco veterans called Gilberto Caleffi and Erio Simonini, or G-CLEF and E.R.I.O if you will, but that’s all I know…
