Four year after the album L’Isola (“The Island”, Snowdonia) based on a noir-horror story by Alda Teodorani and three years after the shocking techno-hc cd-single Preti Pedofili (“Pedophile Priests”, Sussidiaria), Le Forbici di Manitù think back to three decades of eclectic activism on the edge of the Italian music scene - with influences ranging from post-punk to noise, from prog-rock to ambient, lounge and folk - in a "Self-Myth-Anthology" that collects rare tracks from various singles and compilations plus various unreleased tracks, demos for projects that were never realized, radio jingles, covers (from Sylvia Fricker to PiL) and other curious "clippings " from the archives. Convinced that the best way to cope with the present crisis of the recording industry is to offer rich and highly collectible physical packagings, we spared no expense . The cd album, compiled and profusely annotated (in Italian) by Vittore Baroni and Manitù Rossi, remixed and produced by Manitù at Occam's Razor studio, is therefore housed in a deluxe die-cut box (printed on precious Fedrigoni Oikos paper, original artwork and layout by Elena De Santi) together with a 72 pages book in color that includes, in addition to a complete illustrated discography and full lyrics of the songs, a critical essay by Walter Rovere and a long interview with Manitù Rossi by Alessandro Achilli. In 50 randomly selected copies of the box set, produced in a limited edition of 500 copies, was also included as a “Easter egg” a second bonus CD with a long version (48' 35") of the unpublished track Air Dura. The work is dedicated with the greatest affection to Massimo Pavarini and Enrico Fontanelli. In preparation, due out in late 2014, a very special new double concept album by Le Forbici di Manitù & Friends, plus more archival reprints: the story continues...
