LAST FEW COPIES
Roberto Cacciapaglia is an Italian electronic composer who’s made albums using every possible permutation of the same six notes, right up to modern classical, with ‘The Ann Steel Album’ as the weird anomaly.
Made with an American model, who moved to Italy to make it big in fashion, Roberto took her languid, Laurie Anderson-esque voice and created a detached futurist popstar.
The odd sound of these European futurist pop songs make it sound like the machines are breathing, creating a weird organic/ electronic rhythm section. It has to be heard to be believed.
‘The Ann Steel Album’ will be a vinyl only reissue, the first time this album has been on vinyl since its initial small pressing in the late 70’s, available from Half Machine Records on Monday 24th October 2011.
You can read about Animal Collective's Avey Tare talking about the record on Altered Zones, where he compares it to Bruce Haack, White Noise And Pierre Henry - http://alteredzones.com/posts/130/guest-post-avey-tare/
