Musumeci tapes reissue, with their brutal body music plus, similar to DAF, CHBB and Liaisons Dangereuses, was one of the most acclaimed in the Mannequin Records 2013 productions. So we really happy to unearth for you 3 more recordings from their discography, all recorded live in 1985.
Mauro Massaglia, founder member and lead synthesizer, describes the band’s aesthetic as “simple music, no solos, new sounds, all played at maximum volume possible.” Something that surely catch the attention of best DJs on earth, starting from TRAXX, the Chicago-based head of Nation Records, who redesign for Mannequin Records a raw live version of 'Tag Fur Tag' with what he described as a "ugly-tape Kode".
Massaglia recalls Musumeci’s live shows as multimedia performances of a confrontational stripe, mixing rough sound collage with provocative visuals. “Our intention was to involve the viewer with two senses: ear and eye,” he remembers. “We loved stupid old black-and-white movies or war images, Berlin in the May of ’45, the Vietnam conflict, corrupt Italians involved into massacres or scandals… in short, all the shit that the human race can produce.”
