It was 4 years ago, more or less, that Michelangelo, That Noise From The Cellar's bass player, gave a lift to me and mydear Vono Box to home driving His renault4 after a live show somewhere in rome. I remember He couldn't stop but talking of His new bass guitar. And maybe also about a girl He liked at that time. But, principally it looked like He was more interested about the bass than in the girl. Ok, wait, now i remember! He was in loved with Erase Errata's blond bass player (wouldn't You?), - they were going to play a gig downhere, yes. Ok, if Michelangelo had made listen one of TNFTC's to Her, probably he would have had some chance to have a flirt at least with Her guitar, because this album is a total bomb, an explosion of rancid no-sense, pure noise-core monstrosity, never unsincere, - often stepping into the wildest jazz-core, along the throat cut of a Music maturity shamelessly almost ignored from the rome/national indie no-scene; and They are at the third release! Isn't it? I'll dissipate any doubt about that with a komainterview during next days. The opening track, A new letter to ZZTop, might let You think the whole album is a lo-fi production, even if at its best, - but You'll have to change Your mind when it follows There's Another Thing You Can Do to Intensify Your Woman's Pleasure, the magic madness of more hi-fi sound, sung in two voices, whose one in a exquisite frantic half-falsetto. Gene Hackman is driven by a great synth work, that makes of its 45sec a clear jewel, a whirling of noise, - better, a nova, it falls right onto You, and You find Yourself face to the wall, - i mean, this is an hit that in a whatever indie u.s.a. chart would be able to do of That Noise From The Cellar at least what Test Icicles hormonally represented in recente times. Then: skip to the schizoid Space Ace in a Cactus Race, absolutely corrosive and ill, - and then to Star System (Come with Us), screams all over You, orgasmic, come-on, come in is the line, with a spectacular sax left free. Psychic digression Dive is worthy a note too. Last but not least, Handshake e Carmadillo should alone justify the buy. And i got the cd for free, it's cool, isn't it? Grazie.

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
