The Birdmen of Alkatraz (Italy) - 1987 - Gliddin' Off [EP]

Tracks :
A1 Young Maiden Ghost 5:21
B1 Dreamin Demon 3:40
B2 The Best Way To Say Goodbye 3:45

Maurizio Curadi : guitars,
Gianfranco Migliaccio: bass
Daniele Caputo: drums

This is certainly the best of the current crop of Italian bands that I've heard thus far; there's twelve minutes of exciting psycho-drama spread thickly over three tracks. For a three piece band they create a very full sound with Curadi's vibrant guitar buzzing, stinging and generally pervading every inch of precious vinyl. Whilst this record could easily be mistaken for the out-pourings of some time-shrouded acid crazed combo of the late 60's there is a bizarre Mediterranean tinge to, particularly, "Dreamin' Demon" which brings some sense of originality yet the track itself sounds like a heady mixyture of a Sergio Leone western film score and the Yardbirds' "Heart Full Of Soul." Fascinating. To sample the current fledgeling Italian scene I can think of no better place to start.
