XX CENTURY ZORRO-LA VOLPE DU XX SIECLE, LP, 1983, ITALY
An Italian Slapp Happy trapped in a closet? Jac Berrocal duking it out with Joseph Hammer's optigan? Bene Gesserit dancing a tango with Ghedalia Tazartes? L. Voag serenading John Gavanti? These are the fleeting images coalescing in my addled brain as I attempt to navigate the formidably outre soundworld of XX Century Zorro and then express the cumulative weltanschauung of these maverick Italian weirdniks in some comprehensible fashion. Baffling, deranged work thats often enough sounds like all of the above occuring simultaneously, this is a real high water mark of the 80's Italian underground.
