Another incredible archival work from Cabiria Records here, a genuine holy grail of Italian post-punk music, Andy Warhol Banana Technicolor’ legendary 'Color Color' tape is remastered and issued on vinyl for the first time, this is an indispensable slice of ‘80s Italy’s underground experimental rhizome. Like their international tape-scene allies, Andy Warhol Banana Technicolor reacted to this world thru a matrix of mono-synths, drum machines, microphones and 4-track recorders, mostly recording/experimenting ideas direct-to-tape in one take, sounding as though they’re soldered together and making a virtue of their lo-fi set-up’s infidelities and imperfections. Yet again opening another experimental postpunk wormhole we never knew existed. It frames the sound of a real explorer carving his own niche way beyond the mainstream, instinctively taking the influence of Kraftwerk and Brian Eno along much odder, waywardly personalised vectors which would eventually inspire and intersect other local freaks such as Hitler SS and Tampax
