** restocked, last copies around, sold out at source ** Mindblowing limited vinyl reissue! Founded in Rome in 1964, ‘Il Gruppo Di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza’ was a collective of noted and noteworthy composers who challenged the very structure and performance of music itself. Today the most renowned of its members would be film scoring genius Ennio Morricone (indeed “Il Gruppo…” performed on many celebrated Morricone scores of the 1960s and 1970s) but each contributor has an intriguing history in Italian music. The collective improvised live (according to strict exercises) and in the studio (recording for RCA, Deutsche Grammaphon, GDM and others). Come 1970, “Il Gruppo’ (as ‘The Group’) recorded “The Feed-back” (for RCA Italy), an insane amalgam of avant-improvization and motorik krautrock beats that, understandably, has become one of the most collectable LPs ever issued. In October 1971 ‘Il Gruppo’ returned to the studio to record a sequel. This is that record.
Nuova Consonanza at the top, in the classic freeform outfit mixed with dry drum breaks with screaching trumpets and guitars. For reasons unknown “Niente” was never originally issued but one listen will convince that not only is it the sequel to one of the most sought after LPs of all time, but it is also by far its superior.
