Confusional Quartet (1980), 7/10

(Clicka qua per la versione Italiana)

Italian band Confusional Quartet (Lucio Ardito on bass, Gianni Cuoghi on drums, Enrico Serotti on guitar, Marco Bertoni on keyboards) was stylistically related to punk-rock, the new wave of the Residents and Devo, and the "no wave" of DNA, but always kept a humorous and catchy tone, perhaps a descendant of the Italian "varieta`" (music-hall). They mixed the aesthetic issues of demented rock, artistic revisionism and the jazz avantgarde. Their album Confusional Quartet (1980) is a mad parade of brief, frantic, zany, futuristic instrumental miniatures. It stands out as both an aural experiment, a post-modernist experiment, and a melodic experiment. The EPs Confusional Quartet (1981) and Documentario (1981) were vastly inferior.

Confusional Quartet (Elica) reissues material from 1980-81.
