BACIAMIBARTALI AND WINTER LIGHT
Spittle Records - 15 €
First reissue of Baciamibartali and Winter Light (1982), an essential document of Italian post-punk split between Tarcisio Lancioni's twin projects Baciamibartali and Winter Light.
Includes CD containing the album plus Baciamibartali's 1984 three-song EP The Mournful Gloom.
"The magic touch of this unforgettable icon of romantic and decadent post-punk music is back to pluck strings in the depths of our souls, a jubilation of the most powerful vibrational dynamics, melodic/chromatic inventions and perspective layers . . . whether they are the dreamlike fugues of Baciamibartali or the neon-lighted electronics of Winter Light. . . . Although the 'twilight of hope' and the fragility of the human condition are clearly inspirations to the author, on the other hand the stings of disenchantment look for shelter by embracing an impossible dream, one that dies away among the lights and shades of these atemporal melodies.
Glimpses of the Pre-Raphaelite aesthetics that torture shrouds of sublime harmonies and chisel electric marbles of an epic memory, burning in a never-ending chant of passion. This reissue is nothing short of a must."
