-"Pilia has become Italy's finest music export this year. After his stunning release on Last Visible Dog,
it was clear he had little competition. His subsonic drones are a thing of beauty; pulling in and pushing the listener
away simultaneously, keeping him or her in a constant state of limboith all things Stefano Pilia does, there is an
understated and simple beauty beneath them." (Brad Rose, Foxy Digitalis)

-"Guitar, electronics and various small rackety sounds collect themselves into a haze of infinite possibilities.
At certain points there's a sparseness to their approach recalling Charalambides' quiet explosions; at others there's
a weird and wooly organic depth closer to some of the contemporary giants of the Finnish underground." (Byron Coley, Harp)

A sage of my acquaintance once wrote: "

"everybody jammin' with everybody else is cool, but I mean, are we working towards a place where there's no real bands anymore? Every show just seems to be like, "look who's playing together now!"

well, you know, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

and, apparently rock 'n' roll is dead.

I'm going to be filing an injunction against Danny & The Juniors (who did "Rock and Roll Will Never Die")...
