not inspired by another thread, of course.

KaZaA will just do fine, download the following:

- Dea
- Pelle
- Oceano Di Gomma
- Voglio Una Pelle Splendida
- Oppio
- Rapace
- Sulle Labbra

they're a mixture of The Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana and Afghan Whigs.. but better than you could think
If you give it a shot, I'm sure you'll be amazed

ahah, that idiot on the bike was born just a few blocks away from me here in Roma

but, on the other hand, in this thread I'm speaking of some band as talented as TSP in their best days.
as 'straight to your motherfucking heart' as them..

eyesbomb, what do you think of PFM?

(not pitchfork media, the Italian prog band)

they used to be a great, great band.
Don't get me wrong, prog rock has always had lots of limits and it's always been a manieristic modern music genre, but sometimes it really was imaginative


I'm thinking at bands like King Crimson (first 4 works) or yes, PFM

their peak was to be the backing band for the double live LP of Fabrizio De André (italian greatest composer ever, our Bob Dylan)
get that if you can
Bass player for them, Patrick, had a flirt with my mother too :)


speaking of 'italian prog', there is another band which was even greater than them: Area
the singer of Area had the most incredible polyphonic voice ever
He wasn't human at all

you might want to check out this release's recent review on Pitchfork

anyway, both great bands
