"home taping is killing music". major labels were using this phrase in the 80's to try and fight the DIY culture, influenced by punk, that was questioning many certainties, be it music or life in general. this is the cultural horizon where LA MAISON finds its home. their story is essentially an oral one, like for many bands in those years. casual encounters, records found and exchanged, demos recorded at home, live club shows in a country that in those years was changing socially and culturally at the speed of light, and was molding itself at the rate of a fluid modernity. the eight tracks of this cassette, all recorded between 1980 and 1985, tell the story of a world where synthesizers and drum machines coexist and replace traditional rock instruments. where homemade overdubs broaden the spectrum of sonic possibilities and the "cut and paste" of tapes is done, literally, by hand. a world in which the first infatuations for wave and industrial are contaminated with no prejudice by the rhythms and sounds of funk and disco. a milestone for those who want to understand the vibrant landscape of italian music of the eighties, many times too hectic and elusive to be captured in real time. eight tracks never published before that see the light in their native format: magnetic tape. (livia satriano)
