Definitely ahead of their time, A.T.R.O.X. were one of the first bands to move beyond the new wave styles and introduce strong electronic elements, not too far from works of contemporary groups such as Tuxedo Moon and Minimal Compact. "Water Tales" was originally released in 1984 on the Contempo label.
Back in print on LP for the first time in 30 years thanks to the fine folks at Spittle.
"When we recorded "Water Tales" I was thinking of the sea as the only escape for mankind. I proposed this idea to the rest of the band and all of them were just thrilled. Probably it is the only New Wave concept-album that was ever released. The sound, compared to the first album, is more influenced by the lessons of Eno and David Byrne, who were enriching their compositions with amazing and intriguing musical phrases and rhythms. Of course, we did not forget the lessons of Neu! and Faust. The Andreoni brothers and Marchini were both brilliantly creative and yielding, and they were responsible for all the musical themes upon which Benvisi carved the acoustics. 'Water Tales' is a sincere album, then the season changed and suddendly we were 'every man for himself' almost without realizing it."
