Temporary Super Offer! *2024 stock* Cache Cache present a reissue of Madfilth, originally released in 1980. From the pumping heart of the Magnetic System comes the "dirtiest" Da-Da-dancefloor anti-jams with this lost 1979 blueprint of Italian conceptual cosmic disco played by the cream of the Goblin studio band. Carving its own grubby niche as an early prototype of cosmic disco cum Italo space funk whilst simultaneously harboring Dada hat stand satire with a junkshop glam aesthetic, this ecological illogical poplitical crab cabaret clearly broke the mold before way before the jelly had set. Fans of "other" obtuse outernational agit-camp might find a fantasy fusion between France's Jean-Pierre Massiera and Sweden's enviromental marvel Kapten Zoom while trying to unravel the Madfilth tangle. Originally drip fed out of Cesare Andrea Bixio's Cinevox stable as one of a tight grip of non-soundtrack LPs, made to test the label's commercial potential, Madfilth would follow the band Goblin -- and their non-cinematic Roller (1976) -- as well as the eponymous long player by The Motowns (1971) in what was perhaps the last-ditch attempt at custom built popsploitation, combining the skills of overqualified composers with undercooked conceptual mind farts. This micro-brewed oddity finally quenches the acquired taste of a new breed of shambolic psychotropic guzzlers proving that 1979 was obviously good year for fool's gold. It is beneath the flamboyant rhythm rants and vari-speed osric slop of alt-comedic sarcy-satirist Alberto Macaro (a genetic beneficiary of a vaudevillian comic bloodline) that the Magnetic System maestros Franco Bixio and Vince Tempera act as the sonic driving force behind this unmarked treasure trove of eight-musical diamanté discoids. It will also come as little surprise that Cinevox/Dario Argento favorites Goblin were not too far away with the bass player Fabio Pignatelli alongside sports rock drummer Agostino Marangolo joining in. Madfilth's inclusion of Goblin synth maverick Maurizio Guarini and the band's mid-period guitarist Carlo Penessi (founder of the band Etna) pinpoints the jobbing Goblin session group during the time they recorded the soundtracks for the films Buio Amiga (1979) and Squadra Antigagsters (1979). This lesser celebrated late '70s era also witnessed the mutating Goblin rhythm section providing discoid backbeats for records such as Giorgio Farina's Discocross LP (1978), Simonetti's own Capricorn alter-ego, and the homoerotic nightclub spin-off Easy Going, all of which, alongside Madfilth, provide a strong mutual stylistic support system for their claim to cosmic discos deep red bloodline.
