The Stupid Set - You Guys Don't Exist! (CD 2006)

The Stupid Set are simply one of my fav bands coming from Italy. It was 1980, Stupid Set - from Bologna - exorded with a 7'', 4 pieces of pure electronic experimentation, including a cover of "Hello I Love You" of the Doors. It started the journey between avant-garde and electronic minimalist for the band formed by Giampiero Huber (Gaznevada), with the complicity of Paul Bazzani (Rusk Und Brusk), Giorgio Lavagna (Gaznevada) and Fabio Sabbioni. After this 7'' inch they recorded a pair of 12 inches for Mmmh Records, while a year later, the prevailing dark electronica wave noise, saw the band protagonist of "Hear The Rumble" in the company of Henry Serotti (Confusional Quartet). "Soul Trade" however was the title of a very ambitious project, which put into practice the cut-up memory of Burroughs. The album was never published and the group saw the departure of Fabio, who lately formed the Hi-Fi Bros. So they started the project "Psycho Disc", which was represented live in the summer of 1982. It was a multimedia show, in the early' 80s these forms of entertainment were quite unusual and "bizarre". It came shortly after the end of the group, which carved a dance version of a piece of "Psycho Disc", which for the occasion took the title "Do not Be Cold In The Summer Of Love."

This kind of italian material is sublime!
I Just knew only gaznevada first
album, Sick Sountracks, and Faus'O Out Now. Seems that in italy between 1978 and 1984 there were many strange postpunk bands. Thanks for share this discovery.
Any hope to listen Detonazione Dentro Me?
This blog is beautiful.
