Artist: All Scars Orchestra
Title: New Scars 2004
Format: CD
Label: Bosco / Ludmila / Into my Bed
Rated: *****
The All Scars Orchestra is a Northern Italy operating small and ever changing all stars orchestra of noisters, including the local hero Daniele Brusaschetto, Mirco Rizzi from Ashtool, Luca Valisi & Paolo Bianci from Ludmila, Paul Beauchamp from Gullinkambi and a bunch of other people involved in this fringe scene. The 12 tracks running at a little over an hour define the experimental noise genre in all of its aspects, from the somewhat electronicly-influenced, to the more industrial-ish, to the most freeform of 'em all. Given the diversity within, some of these pieces are truly outstanding and touching, while others go by less remarkably. Personally my favourites are the opening "La Cosa Piu' Violenta che Fai" (the most violent thing you do) which really sounds like Daniele's early band Mudcake's sound dueting with Diamanda Galas and Trent Reznor and "Distoguitars" which sounds, uhm, I don't like, like Sonic Youth meets Entombed, but with no drums and no vocals... Anyway, rest assured, the whole record is much more industrial than my two favourite songs description's would make you think it isn't... catch my drift?
