Baracca e Burattini, Italy

Baracca e Burattini - Hinterland. 1981 Mama Barley.

One of many Italian fusion albums from this period, influenced by the Cramps label groups such as Bella Band and late era Canzoniere Del Lazio. Also Perigeo should get a nod here. I also detect a slight Zeuhl underpinning, as noted by the chanted, wordless vocals. On the soft side of said genre, but definitely distinguishes this album from the pack. Band is named after a 1954 Italian film. Worth a few spins.

May 2013 update: I noticed today that the band has a new album coming out. I wonder if that will lead to a reissue?

Priority: none
