SINTEIKA - Momenti - Ottobre 2013
I Sinteika sono l'affermazione di tutto quello che sono e che vogliono essere: Sinteika possono essere soltanto Sinteika.
Volume Sick -
La Capra - 2013
Un mix eterogeneo di improvvisazione di pancia e ricercatezza sonora.
La miscela che ne viene fuori è una sonorità in cui gli strumenti sembrano fare l'amore tra di loro e in cui tutti sono protagonisti.

“Seid Radikal! Be radical!” This call to arms, as propagated in the song “Radikal” can be seen as programmatic for the entire new Pankow-album “And Shun The Cure They Most Desire”, the group’s first long player in more than five years, which sees them reunited with original vocalist and non-conformist
Alex Spalck who lends his voice to three songs (next to new singer
Declercq) and wrote all the lyrics. The sonic anarchists headed by
Maurizio (fm) Fasolo and
(whose definitive return to the band will probably delight the old fan
base) have again set out to defy genre conventions by conjuring up a Molotov cocktail of
EBM, Industrial, Pop, Minimal and Baroque fragments plus a wild cornucopia of sounds, beats and the unbridled fondness for experimentation. Impossible? There is no impossible! Garnished with cynical lyrics and a deliberate disrespect for systemic conventions, Pankow play in a league of their own… just like always when the mad Italians unleash an album unto the unsuspecting world. Fans know that they have to approach each new Pankow-release with an open mind, while people with a tendency for pigeonholing will get their stereotypes smacked right back into their faces with a smirk from the band. As a special bonus
“And Shun The Cure They Most
Desire” contains the bonus disc “+”, a collection of completely new and exclusive remixes from bands like
Rabia Sorda, Tying Tiffany, Ambassador 21
and many more, as well as re- and deconstructions of classic songs by the band. Also included is a video clip for the programmatic album track
Men” from video artist
Panero. With the new album, Pankow close the circle they started a decade ago with “Life Is Offensive…” Subversion rules! Open your mind!
have not lost a single bit of their uniqueness on “Hogre”, although it
has been some 25 years since their first release came out. Be it on their
own or at the hands of resourceful remixers (among them Plastic Noise
Experience), the Italians remain anything but predictable. An epic
10-minute-stomper (Don’t Follow) that sets out to prove that noisy
Industrial-beats can be a good partner for a catchy, anthemic tune, a
thudding ode to alcohol abuse on the backbeat of a glorious
Old-School-EBM-tune (Das Wodkachaos), dark onslaughts of fat Electronica,
minimalistic Noise-Pop-songs, Electroclash – anything goes, as long as
it’s hitting hard. Is this EBM? Industrial Pop? Electro Rock? Catchy
"lost" album from 1993... Well known for their "Six Razor
Blades"album published in 1991 by Contempo Records, Volume Sick were
born from the ashes Rinf (one of the first italian new wave projects) and
published also a couple of 12" before disappearing... Now we have the
chance to finally discover this album, originally recorded for a possible
Contempo releases but "lost" after the bankrupt of the famous label.
The album is produced by Paolo Favati (well known for his wonderful work with
Pankow during the 80's
and the 90's)... Night Rider sounds
actually in the same vein of Talking Heads, with a weird sense of humor and
great rhythms. Guest on one song Billy Blade from Italian legendary band
GazNevada? The drawing on the front
cover is an original made by Tanino Liberatore....
NINE INCH NAILS remix by Paolo Favati

A pence for your thoughts! If you feel like, write your review.
We'll appreciate it.
Scanty visual work built all
around the track by Paolo Favati Forbidden Flowers (from
L’Insolita Compilation, non-conventional electronic music,
released by Pippola Music) Thanks to every personal imprint from all
these different and non-conform image & sound searchers, this
film took his manner within the encounter between pictorial
antiquity and electronic modernity.
The compilation involves: Gianni Maroccolo and his new band (IG,
with Ivana Gatti); Paolo Favati’s remix of “Ongii” by CSI and
Forbidden Flowers, a prewiev of his upcoming solo album; Blume, a
sophisticated indietronic pop band; Cpt.Nice, sort of 21thCentury
Devo; A.M. Boys, an electro-post-kraut duo with German influences;
Pt-r, sound researcher devoted to field recording; an electronic
cover of a Morricone’s legendary theme.
European band based in
Florence, Italy, whose core consists of multi-instrumentalist/ Maurizio Fasolo and German
vocalist Alex Spalck, with the stable collaboration of Paolo Favati and Enzo Regi. Their music has always been coherent since their
birth...they have never betrayed their philosophy to turn to easy gains.
