N.O.R.M.A.-S/T, CD, 1992, ITALY

This Italian octet's impishly whimsy-fied approach fuses R.I.O.-lite stylizations to sting quartet, film score and circus-y maneuvers by way of CD DJ scramblification in a rather theatrical fashion that gives the whole a certain Downtown NY patina. Though there's a tendency to get a mite precious here and there (their opening gambit of covering Bernard Hermann's Psycho score a case in point), much of this is quite curious and rewarding in it's own discreetly arch fashion.
