Originally released in 1983 (Electric Eye) just as the “new Italian rock” movement was beginning to gain momentum, this compilation reflects the impact of a ‘post-Joy Division’ British new wave on the genre. Divided into two sections, the softer “blue section” and the more electric “red section”, this compilation presents some of the most eclectic groups of the period (DIE FORM, RINF), as well as more sophisticated bands like FRIGIDAIRE TANGO and JEUNESSE D’IVOIRE. It also marked the baptism of two bands (LITFIBA and DIAFRAMMA) that would become synonymous with ‘the future of Italian rock’ for the next ten years. Now digitally remastered and available for the first time on CD in “miniature LP” format, and featuring an 8-page booklet containing reviews from the period. Another collector’s item.
