Packaged like a DVD (sh*t, it'll be hard to find room for it in my bookcase between other CDs!), actually it is a CD, debut release for italian Key-Lectric, a pleasant surprise indeed, mixed with Marco Bianchi of Drink to Me.
These three guys take the best of 80s' frenzy, that is post punk and no-wave, like if the experimental convulsions of Daniel Ash's guitars were somehow performed by DNA's non-sense free form (Fucking Rainy - totally blasting in your face), then rewritten in a refreshed dance punk key, something spastic that Ex-Models might love too, (The Jesus Sound, Syncronized-Night), as well for early Deerhunter (those unbearable moments of their Turn it up, Faggot).
On the other side, Catastrophic would please goth people too.
Guitars like broken live wires, - white noise, as they write on the CD notes (what if i place it among my DVDs?), - the whole ambience is acid and burning, often abrasive, - on Infrared Spectroscopy, their singer Manu Magnini also successfully plays the Alan Vega with the mic, while Elektrolitik Cardioid is perfect to turn into an indie dancefloor hit.
Drums are near to the red level, the bass lines are circular and memorable, the attitude is punk, Blanking Generator is fresh blood, - new oxygen and dissonant writing for the italian underground noise music scene, - able to gain some worldwide renown too, with a proper promotion.
And yes, i'm so sorry for them, because they're born in ltaly. Good luck with that.

Confezionato oblungo come un DVD (merd, sarà dura trovargli spazio nella libreria insieme agli altri CD), invece è un CD, uscita debutto degli italiani Key-Lectric, davvero una piacevole sorpresa, - mixati da quel Marco Bianchi dei Drink to Me.
Questi tre ragazzi sanno prendere il meglio della frenesia degli anni 80 tra post-punk e no-wave, come se le convulsioni sperimentali di chitarra di Daniel Ash fossero performate dalla forma libera non-sense dei DNA (Fucking Rainy ti esplode in faccia), quindi riscritto tutto in una chiave dance punk, qualcosa di spastico che potrebbe piacere agli Ex-Models (The Jesus Sound, Syncronized-Night) - nonchè ai primi Deerhunter (intendo quegli inascoltabili momenti di Turn it up, Faggot).
Oltre ciò, un pezzo come Catastrophic strizza l'occhio alla goth people.
Chitarre come cavi elettrici volanti, - white noise, come scrivono sulle note del CD (ma se lo metto tra i DVD?), - l'intero ambiente è acido e bruciante, spesso abrasivo, - poi su Infrared Spectroscopy, il cantante Manu Magnini gioca con successo a fare Alan Vega al microfono, mentre Elektrolitik Cardioid è perfetta per diventare una hit da discoteca indie.
Batterie prossime al clip a livello rosso, line di basso tonde e memorabili, - l'attitudine è punk, - Blanking Generator è sangue fresco, nuovo ossigeno e scrittura dissonante per la scena musicale noise in italia, - qualcosa capace anche di guadagnarsi una eco fuori confine, con la giusta promozione.
Poi sí, mi spiace per Loro.. perchè sono nati in Italia.. dovranno sbattersi il doppio.. buona fortuna..
