ANGELICA FESTIVAL: Angelica 97
From the legendary Bolognese festival, another extraordinary compilation which is not merely a collection of pieces but a long logical work in it's own right, assembled with radical editing flair by turntable player (and festival maestro) Massimo Simonini following the spirit of the topic of last year's Angelica- sampling. Featuring 'Ground Zero', Chris Cutler's 'P53', Stock Hausen and Walkman, Bob Ostertag, Ikue Mori, Dianne Labrosse, Martin Tetreault, Tenko, Dagmar Krauze and Marie Goyette, Zygmunt Krauze (with Orchestra del Teatro Communale di Bologna), Mike Patton, Uchihashi Kazuhisa and the Italian Trio Magneto. Plus cameo appearances from John Oswald and Rene Lussier. A tribute to one of the best European festivals (I wish some of the others would mark themselves with such collections). I mean, Buy It.
