REVIEW: ALICJACOPO – 1998 – 10″ SINGLE

AUTOreverse: Alicjacopo 10″ 1998

Clear vinyl EP recorded in late 1997. Alicia Wade recorded her guitar & vocal parts at home in Virginia, USA while Jacopo Andreini did his vocals, drums & sax at home in Pistoia, Italy.

The record was pressed in New Zealand, if memory serves, and finally distributed by Dekay Age, also out of Virginia. Also distributed by Frigorifero Productions in Italy.

Handmade on every level, this is an object lesson in How We Did Things In Those Days. Good times.

“Time” is like a fractured Portishead. “Cutting Paintings” features Jacopo out front, getting his Zorn on. Or, for the kiddies, imagine the White Stripes fronted by a Tasmanian Devil.

This record is a nice jab to the frontal lobe, just the right amounts of experimentation & rocking out. Dig it!
