Inox- Segni Dal Fiume 12”

I feel like I’ve had this 12” on my hard drive for ages, but for some reason it never really clicked with me until today.  A shame, as it’s an excellent, catchy piece of Italian new wave that’s well worth hearing.   The opening notes of “Waiting For You” immediately set the tone for a great listen, chock full of heavy drum pads, big guitars, sparkling synth arpeggios, female vocal melodies with just the right blend of joy and sadness, and even a little saxophone to drive the wave home.  They almost come across like Italy’s answer to The Passions, Missing Persons, and Berlin, mixing both post-punk and wave influences seamlessly.

The band hailed from Turin, Italy and self-released this 12” in 1985, following it up with a full length LP in 1986 before disappearing into the ether.  I’d love to hear that one if anyone happens to have a copy…  Otherwise, hope you all enjoy this nice little slice of Italian new wave!

      Hi hi! Was just catching up on old comments on a foggy post-Christmas evening and noticed you left this one here. Do you still have a digital copy of the INOX LP? Of course I’d love to share it! You can get in touch and sling it on over to blog@systemsofromance.com. Thank you, thank you!

    Hi Frank, forgive the time span of time, I came back from these comments at a fraction of my time only casually and I had this lucky opportunity.

    Of course MP3 files will be taken from original vinyl in 320Kbps all this material is currently being prepared, and I need sometime to do, in fact, actually, I’m not in possessing the work in question in the vinyl support.

    Then let’s stay tuned…. ….please!
