Roman techno

Via Valerio Mattioli, an intersting piece at RBMA about Rome's hardcore techno scene of the Nineties - involving figures like Lory D and Leo Anibaldi

Talking of untold stories about Italian left-field music, Mattioli is the author of a book that needs to be translated into English - Superonda: Storia Segreta Della Musica Italiana - which covers figures like Ennio Morricone, Franco Battiato, Lucio Battisti, Mario Schifano and more - very much doing for the Italian art-into-rock vanguard what Krautrocksampler and Japrocksampler did for their respective freak-nations.

Interview with Mattioli here about the book.
