Confusional Quartet

August 9, 2006 at 9:19 am Leave a comment

This instrumental Italian group emerged from the Bologna Punk/New Wave scene in the late 1970’s. The Quartet’s sound ranges from Jazz with faint Prog touches, to Punk and Wave, and to more experimental zones. The band’s Futurist influence is evident (not only for its synesthetic representation of Futurist art) as they sample a speech by Marinetti. Several Zolo cuts dot their first album (cover shown above), the most significant being their cover of Volare. Here is the video for that wonderfully zany song (included on the 2000 reissue on Elica).
