SIDRA: a swampadelic blessing of downtown sf - the official bootleg



Paolo Bandera founded in the mid-eighties with Eraldo Bernocchi the colossal collective post-industrial Sigillum S. In 1993 he created his solo project Sshe Retina Stimulants, devoting himself to sharpen the edges of concepts and noise extremes. Andrea Chiaravalli started with Iugula-Thor in 1992 and from his first release on Minus Abens Records titled The Wheel Of The Process he collaborates with Paolo and Eraldo. Their prolific cooperation culminates with the Wrist CD, released by the tremendous German label Ant-Zen in 579 hand-numbered copies. Here Paolo pushes his solo Sshe Retina Stimulants project though areas of once more new climate and untouchable intensity: four tracks of absolute antagonism marry the most unconventional use of voice and electricity with the most terrifying walls of electronic overload, thus producing an unique theory of intellectual sensualism and acoustic extremism. Iugula-Thor takes then the task of filling up again the air with his own brand of feedback and ranting, archiving the glorious result of five new stories of attraction and repulsion: led by vocals born in the dirtiest of all alleys and fed with the steamy liquids from the seediest of all bars, the sound bends itself to a still different interpretations of the iugulanoise, a radical star among the effects and frontal crashes. This is a work for the sonically strong and structural brave!
Tracks remastered from the original tapes and the record has been pressed on 140 gr black vinyl with black label and black inner sleeve and comes in a perfect replica of original artwork sleeve w/insert, in an edition of 199 copies.

"L'ULTIMO CANTO DELLA PORNOGRAFIA" (“The last Act of Pornography” for English) collects 6 tracks by LE COSE BIANCHE (LCB) recorded in the months before the X CONGRESSO POST INDUSTRIALE, the well-known OEC label festival held on October 31 2015 in Bologna at club Kindergarten, in which LCB, accompanied by SSHE RETINA STIMULANTS, was doing his first and last live appearance.
The three tracks of LP side A are unreleased tracks recorded in studio with Paolo Bandera (aka SSHE RETINA STIMULANTS) and exclusively featured at the CONGRESSO.
The LP's side B contains other two unreleased tracks recorded in studio by Giovanni Mori, while the third track is a live version of "COME SE LA PORNOGRAFIA NON FOSSE MAI ESISTITA", recorded during the LCB live-set at the CONGRESSO: this was the last track of the live section and features as special guest also ANDREA CHIARAVALLI  (aka IUGULA-THOR) on vocals.
<"L'ULTIMO CANTO DELLA PORNOGRAFIA" is all what I never told and was overdue to be told after the “Porn Trilogy”. >
<"L'ULTIMO CANTO DELLA PORNOGRAFIA" is really the last act of all what I am. After this, much probably, we will no longer meet . >
