Mass-Media Stars - Acqua Fragile

Mass-Media Stars
Following on from the successful series of reissues of Italian progressive rock legends PFM and BANCO, ESOTERIC RECORDINGS is pleased to announce the release of both albums by Italy’s ACQUA FRAGILE. Formed in Milan, Acqua Fragile featured BERNARDO LANZETTI (vocals, guitar), GINO CAMPANINI (guitar, vocals), MAURIZIO MORI (keyboards, vocals), FRANZ DONDI (Bass) and PIERO CANAVERA (Drums, Guitar, Vocals). 

Inspired by British groups such as Genesis and Family and by the success of fellow group PFM, ACQUA FRAGILE wrote original material and sung lyrics in English. No mere clones of their British counterparts, ACQUA FRAGILE’s second album, MASSMEDIA STARS, was an accomplished work with many marvellous songs and enjoyed a release in the USA. The music was inspired enough for vocalist Bernardo Lanzetti to be sought out as a future member of PFM.

This Esoteric Recordings reissue is newly re-mastered and fully restores the original album artwork. The booklet also features a new essay with an interview with Bernardo Lanzetti.

Folktronic
What if computers finally began getting more Africa in them? What if folk artists started emerging who sounded more post-modern than Cornelius or Pole? What would Click Folk or Glitch Folk sound like? What would Alan Lomax have said if, in 1965, the Newport Folk Festival had been invaded by boffins and geeks playing modular Moogs? What if you could hear, today, the Country Music of the year 2049? What about the Japanese country music of 2049? What would that sound like? What if electronics had appeared in 18th Century Scotland just at the moment of the Highland Clearances? How many mountains can you fit on a Minidisc? It's what Raymond Scott, Bruce Haack or Gary Numan might have sounded like if they'd jammed their way through the back catalogue of Steeleye Span. It's Shakespeare rendered in Flash 5 by a superlucid hyperactive Japanese geek. It's those prolific medieval songwriters Trad. and Anon. finding the missing link between unicorns and Unix. It's preposterous, provocative and prescient
