loving machinery ep / 12" / MNQ 024

30th Anniversary edition of the 12"ep 'Loving Machinery' from Central Unit, the cult new-wave band based in Bologna. Formed in 1981, they were among the 1st in Italy to manipulate synths, drum machines and other electronic devices to create atmospheric soundscapes and they were considered the Italian answer to Tuxedomoon, who spawned a whole school in the Italian underground. After the 1st live appareances as opening act to bands like Spandau Ballet and Monochrome Set in their Italian tours, Central Unit published in march 1982, this 12"ep with 4 tracks, including a cover of "What Use?" from Tuxedomoon. The ep 1st entered Belgian and German charts with the single "Saturday Nite", thanks to its skeletal electronic beats and minimal synth atmospheres, combined with mechanical basslines and relentless bass guitar meanderings, with slothy saxophone murmurs peeping out here and there. Limited edition of 300 copies on clear vinyl..!
