Picchio dal Pozzo - Abbiamo Tutti I Suoi Problemi (Mega Blowout Sale)

Picchio dal Pozzo are considered to be one of the very few "Canterbury" inspired bands that emerged from Italy's fertile 1970's progressive rock musical scene. They released two highly regarded - and highly sought after - albums during their lifetime.
This was their second and in my opinion the greatest release during the band's life and came very near the end of the band's existence. Using guitar, keyboards, saxes, bass, drums and vocals, despite the band's Canterbury-ish roots and their more advanced and complex RIO-style 'rehearsal-intensive', PdP had a sound completely their own that encompassed all aspects of their music: the vocals, the writing, the arrangements and the performances on the instruments.
This is an utterly fantastic album that has previously only been available on CD from Korea and Japan, both in very limited editions. Newly remastered by Bob Drake, this great work is now available to everyone. Essential for fans of groups like Caravan, Hatfield & The North, Henry Cow, Soft Machine & Frank Zappa.

"One of the most original, impressive and highly respected of all the experimental groups to have come out of Italy in the 1970s, Picchio dal Pozzo were also one of the early invitees to the canonical 'Recommended Sampler', and would have been in RIO, had RIO lasted another year - and had the group not folded up and disappeared before anyone had realised it was.
In the last decade the record was reissued briefly in Japan, then it disappeared again. We have now re-mastered it and put it back into the public domain, where it belongs.
Copying no one, though there is some Zappa influence - Picchio had a unique and highly developed style of composition that was not only out of step with it's own time but which sounds contemporary still. Highly composed and devoid of jazz phrasing and riffs with solos, this record achieves maximum musical effect with minimum instrumental means through close attention to timbre, dynamics and expressed tempi and a kind of deep complexity that sounds simple but changes with each listening. A lot of ideas subtly developed - rather than experimented with; a one-off classic."-Chris Cutler
