Cheap SID-like arpeggios do always sound great to me. Does anyone know which chip was used?

The 2nd birthday of “Mister Italo”

mr_italo

Friends of the good old Italo. For those who couldn’t tune in on the second of July because of the FIFA-Worldcup, the hot wheather or whatever: Here is the file of our “Best of Mister Italo”-mix. Only the very best – in our opinion – of this wonderful genre.  Think you know all the tracks.

Es wächst das Gras nicht über alles

Reinhard Lakomy – Es wächst das Gras nicht über alles (1982)

Stunning East German Prog Rock/Ambient cross-over. The original pressing on vinyl is quite rare and far from being affordable. Hopefully,  it’s also been recently re-released on CD – yes, remember, the bastardized reflective disc-shaped thing that is not as beautiful and collectible as the vinyl, and no way as handy as a Flac or an MP3.

El Pasador & Karina Huff – Mexico

mexico posterAutumn evenings on TV in Italy in 1981 were quite nice with the TV show “Signori si parte”, presented by Gianfranco D’Angelo and Karina Huff, most famous for her roles in the Vanzina bros flicks “Sapore di Mare” and “Vacanze di Natale”, thanks to her previous appearance on the cover of the italian edition of Playboy. Immediate popularity arrived, as well as another nude exploit in 1984 on Playmen. Right before she completely gave up on cinema, she played the role of Rosy Mainardi in Lucio Fulci’s horror “Voci dal Profondo”.

Warp Factor One

Air – Warp Factor One (1980)

Back from a short recess, and with my hands full of goodies such as this amazing Air – Warp Factor One. Tonight “Latest Entries” webradio session will feature some of the wildest, most bizarre, and grooviest cosmic tracks I was able to recently gather from flea markets and online stores, and it will be mixed live BTW (well sort of, don’t expect much :)).

Soon to be disclosed: The Robot Scientists have a special gift that will be broadcast on the webradio, so more about that later.

Stay tuned… and see you tonight.

Fantasy

This, is cheesy. The cheese fondue of Italo Disco. And it doesn’t even come from the land of pasta and pizza, it’s actually Canadian.
