Bossa Luce – Nel Salotto Degli Appestati LP (Endangered Species 004)
Vereker's Endangered Species rack up a necessary survey of Bossa Luce's possessed Italian post punk/EBM voodoo with 10 bleedin' cuts drawn from his dead limited, privately issued early tapes. Dank, destroyed, devious, devilish; all words that alliterate with and sum up Bossa Luce's barrelling and headstrong sound, sprung from a heady mixture of inspirations from the demented atmospheres of Maurizio Bianchi to knackered dub techniques and Belgian EBM backbone. Yet, thanks to cryptically masked production technique - employing minidiscs, VHS tape, guitar and concrète sampling - and his sound's mixed media fidelity, you'd be hard pushed to clearly compare Bossa with anyone else old or new. Recommended.
