Tarana Caitanya live in MILAN

This vedic inspired gentleman is my favorite interpreter of traditonal devotional songs from Vaishnava culture, represented by some known and lesser known Hinduist groups (most renowned are the Hare Krishna). Vedic scriptures played a big part in my upbringing the early stage of my quest for answers as a kid and returned during the Foresta di Ferro period (despite the black baron links and being an Ain Soph reinterpretation the tune it was completely inspired by the Mahabarata).

I won’t pretend to be an expert nor a full-on devotee, my perspective is still European/Sardinian, yet there is a lot to discover and understand in an amazing culture (or better different cultures considering the different period), that has both meaning and great artistic expressions.

Tarana C. plays minimal and very meditative music, using harmonium (those of you who appreciate Andrew King know what I am talking about), which FDF implemented already in one occasion and plan to use more in the next material.

There are many drone/trance oriented atmospheres, tracks tend to be very long, yet with many changes and feature a strong choral impact, yet it may not be for everybody, give it a spin.

Uncodified – Comunidad – CD New on Elettronica Radicale Edizioni


COMUNIDAD

Uncodified – Comunidad – CD ERE preorder 10 euro

Uncodified is back with a bang with “Comunidad” a new full-length CD released by Elettronica Radicale Edizioni.

“Comunidad” is a cold and merciless analysis of contemporary political and economic scenarios, of current social textures, dominated by always-more powerful lobbies and think tanks.

Are we really convinced that anything surrounding us is the product of rational logics of those who rule the world?

Corrado Altieri’s new work features eight sonic attacks, charged with pure post-industrial mixed with skilfully structured power-electronics, abrasive rhythmical inserts and radical noise.

Comes in gatefold digipack, featuring artwork by Wertham.

Contact us at caligula031 at gmail dot com for your copy. wholesale available, no trades.

PS:  Released in collaboration with Old Europa Cafe and e Luce Sia.

Once out, price will be 12 euro.

John…

You are still missed… but you may be happy to know that finally started working for you…

From Andrew King’s FB profile:

All My Friends, Remembered.
Electrowerkz.
London, 7th October 2017.

It was a great honour to be able to start proceedings on this important night, and whilst we were unfortunate in that the evening clashed with a couple of other events which shared our potential audience, there was in the end a perfectly respectable turn out, and I would like to think that everyone went away heartened by what turned out to be a very special event.

Our scene is one often pigeonholed and pilloried by detractors for its supposed uniformity and unoriginality but each band proved that that couldn’t be further from the truth: my hoary historical ramblings were followed by Annie Stubbs’ hieratic channeling, after which Black Light Ascension gave people a chance to unwind a bit with their sweeping, rhythmic cold wave anthems. Gerechtigkeits Liga then took things left-field again with a succession of brooding ritualistic soundscapes whilst Naevus brought things to a rousing close with their special blend of philosophical brutalism.

But the evening wasn’t just a reflection of the scenes diversity but also, as we had all worked with John for many years, a (small) cross section of the staggering range of his involvement in underground music. Of course it was – rightly for this event – a London-centric and themed concert, but other parts of John’s history and legacy were given cameos by DJ Krackhaus Nihil’s clever selection of John Murphy (& other) classics!

So, a palpable hit! Special thanks to Andrew Trail for organising the event, Mak and Electrowerkz for having faith in it, and to the audience for joining us in our celebration of our friend.
