"A dive and then a deep immersion into the New Wave phenomena developed in the Lombardia region between the second half of the '70s and the whole of the '80s. From the heart of Milano towards the geographical limits of the region, here is a whole legion of bands as representatives of a new subculture perfectly in step with the various music revolutions started in London and New York as in other centers of the Anglophone music "empire". Throughout these two CDs, you will find bands both well-known and less known bands like Monofonic Orchestra, Aus Decline, Art Fleury, Dark Tales, Officine Schwartz, Art Boulevard, and many others. A whole new and highly eclectic scene moving through different sound paths between no wave, synth wave, cheap electronics, and lots of bizarre homemade experiments. An unmissable document in the history of Italian wave. Also features 'Lectric Art, Cobalto, Sunset Boulevard, Cloudy Doll, La Maison, Der Blaue Reiter, Actor's Studio, Coin Privé, D.I.O., Zio Tibia, Alphaville, Unit, Dead Relatives, Reptile Chime, Equivoque Crepuscolaire, Scunt, No Levo, Rt, After Budapest, Inside Out, Reverie, Texcoco, Dietrich, Les Fauves, Litania, Colour Moves, Le Masque, Angelo Vaggi, Brain Discipline, Faded Image, Tasaday, and La Cosa." - Spittle Records.
