- ALL - Monuments -



Artist : Monuments 

Label : Anna Logue Records 


In 1984, the Monuments, consisting of Andrea Costa and Mauro Tavella from Torino (Italy), released their only official record, a mini lp called “Age” comprising six incredibly fantastic electro-pop tracks. Anna ever thought of this mini lp as being the best electro-pop record ever coming out of Italy. So what you get on this cd is indeed an essential retrospective compilation album of one of Italy’s pioneering underground electronic music acts. And while Andrea and Mauro want to close this chapter with this release, a project entitled Monuments II is maybe on its way… Limited to 500 copies. Check !!!

age / LP

Crown jewel of the early 80's Italian minimal-synth scene. The Monuments came into being in january 1981 in Turin when Mauro Tavella (keyboards, programming) and Andrea Costa (keyboards, voice) pooled their artistic experiences. From the outset they produced exclusively synthesised music, following the natural evolution in electronic music from the early days with monophonic synthesisers to the latest virtual sounds generated with the aid of computers. The Monuments released in 1984 their only official record on Discordie, a mini-LP called 'Age' comprising 6 incredibly fantastic electro-pop tracks, here reissued by Mannequin Records with 2 bonus tracks, "Veiled Lady" and "The Seals", which are out-takes from the same period. All the tracks were recorded on a Tascam 8-tracks, with external synchronisation of the percussions, at the TKS Studio in Torino. From 1987 onwards, they focused exclusively on music for theatre, radio and independent film, writing scores for the opening sequences of programmes for some of the most important Italian tv companies as well as soundtracks for documentaries. Anna Logue Records released the 'XXVII' CD in 2009, an anthology of their music that contains the best of their early work from the years 1981-84. Some critics thought of this mini LP as being the best electro-pop record ever coming out of Italy. A masterpiece limited to 300 copies on black vinyl..!
