And then ... you get this?

To cut a long story short, this is still Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza ... but Holy Shit!?

They turn into an absolute monster of an avant-psych funk machine. There is so much to love here. You all know Ennio Morricone from his soundtrack work, but the way he rips the arse out of his trumpet? I'd never before considered that a trumpet could be violated in such a way. But, the drums of Vincenzo Restuccia? Oh my word! Recorded up front and central and if you haven't heard this before (and you are not dead inside) then he will push all of your buttons.

Given the time of it's recording, socially, politically and culturally, you can place this into a broader context but this could only ever be Italian.

Originally released on vinyl in 1970, this is the remastered CD version courtesy of Schema from 2014.

Thanks for all the Gruppo.

The second track seems to be corrupted... only 36 seconds instead of 6 minutes (and 4 seconds).

Just played it back. I get the full 6:04.

Groups like Gruppo, AMM, MEV, etc really laid the fondation of this genre. I always enjoy revisiting the founders. Thanks for these and all the rest.
