This EP is a step forward in Father Murphy's downward spiral.
It demands You to follow Father Murphy in his failing. In his fall.

This little EP is about Failure.
Failing is the only way for Father Murphy to proceed on his Path.
Failing means to stumble, fall, and start again, but in a different way.
Loops box people in one place forever, nurtured and stucked, where they won't suffer but where they won't grow.
Failure instead of  Loops.
Father Murphy did not go for the Loop, he chose to Fail.
To fall, to suffer, to start over without being stuck.

This EP demands dedication.
The 4 movements are 4 movements but are also two pair of movements.
It is either #1,#2,#3 or #4
or it is #1 and #3 together or #2 and #4 together.
Each movement is a Father Murphy attempt to do things another way.
Each movement is similar but different.

This little EP contains two one-sided tapes.
Father Murphy demands You to play the two tapes simultaneously.
You choose. Never forget You have a choice.
It is only by listening to all the layers together that you will sonically and ideally reach how Failure sounds to Father Murphy.
Like a repetition, in different forms.
You won't be looking for a closure. You can only try to make things different.

-         Let the Wrong Rise with You
-         Bones Got Dry*

-         They Will All Fail You
-         Despite All the Grief

Recorded by King Davide Cristiani at Bombanella Soundscape, January – April 2013, except chorale in "They will all Fail You" recorded by Fabio La Rocca at Itri's Medieval Castle, December 2012.
Mixed and mastered by Greg Saunier.

All songs and lyrics by F. Zanatta, unless otherwise noted.
* Lyrics by V. Ngo & F. Zanatta.

Visions and visitations through Ol' Fisherman Ngo.

Father Murphy recites his words in “What about failure?” from cut up sentences by William S. Burroughs, Saint Anselm of Canterbury, J.G. Ballard and our dear Vinh Ngo.

Father Murphy (is): Rev. freddie Murphy, Chiara Lee.
Vicar Vittorio Demarin, after recording the EP, decided it was time to let the only Rev. freddie and C.Lee proceed on this journey. After baptizing them and following the same Path for many years, he understood it was time for them to go for the Cross, where the Cross is the intersection of two axis. He did let go knowing they were going to be again three only as Rev. (1), C.Lee (2) and Rev+C.Lee(The Cross=3). Godspeed You Vicar, You go straight as an arrow, our dear friend.

Ezra Buchla (vocals on "They will all Fail You"), Gianni Giublena Rosacroce (clarinet on "Let the Wrong rise with You"), Daniel Schleifer (tuba on "Let the Wrong rise with You") and Michael Jeffries (sax on "Let the Wrong rise with You") joined  Father Murphy on this journey.

This EP is released on vinyl by Aagoo Records and Boring Machines 

Father Murphy is proudly part of Madcap Collective.

Gianni Giublena Rosacroce keeps on sending us "sound postcards" from his travels through deserts and colorful oasis. After the last tape released, "La Mia Africa", GGR  comes back with new tales of far unexplored territories: ipnotic percussions, dreamy horns, powerful imaginative sounds wich leads our mind back to a 70s' Mondo Moviessoundtrack shooted somewhere in the north of Africa. 
In this new travel GGR is not alone anymore, the bewitching Maria Violenza goes along with him. Born and grew up in Sicily, she let spread out all the influences of the different cultures that her island has seen living (and
struggling) side by side for centuries. What we find here are arabian rythms, sonorities wich recall spanish and morocco'sensations wich collide with a forceful synth wave evil touch, a cold blow!
This split is a travel in oniric territories with two sage guides beside. 
Just play it and lay yourself in their hands ... to somewhere else...

RAINBOW ISLAND - Road To Mirapuri 
Cassette Tape

SIDE A - Rainbow Road
SIDE B - Mirapuri Lagoon

RAINBOW ISLAND are back with new recordings after their great debut album (RNBW - LP), out one year ago on Flying Kids Records.
This four piece band keeps on exploring dreamy and  solitary colourful islands which probably exist exclusively in their twisted minds.
Listening to this album we are driven through psychedelic roads made of oscillators and arpeggiators, heading towards this magic world called Mirapuri.
This land is erected with drones, synths and electronic percussions; an intangible voice rises to tell visitors Mirapuri's primitive stories and  ritual liturgies, and sometimes it just screams against shadows in the forest.
At the end of the Road, you start to glimpse the Lagoon, while walking on a bridge assembled with psych loops. This is  the place where the Rainbow ends and maybe... who knows... we'll find also the pot of gold! And if not... damn, it has been a wild-eyed wander at any rate !
RAINBOW ISLAND sounds like some Black Dice were fighting against italian 70s synth-progressive or could sound like kinda of bongo-loid Fuck Buttons were playing in a jungle.
And it's all in a really nice cassette with a cover printed on Risograph, limited to 100 copies. what's more?

TROUBLE VS GLUE - Die Trauerweide - LP - out on NO=FI Recordings

we are glad to announce our next release

edition of 300 - black vinyl
artwork and design by Onze

TROUBLE VS GLUE - Die Trauerweide - LP

TvsG is a duo: as the name says, we can picture one of 'em as the Trouble and the other as the Glue, in a never ending fight made of synths, guitar, drums and wicked voices. After their debut album on the german label Urquinaona ("Zum Teufel") and a song on the (in)famous Borgata Boredom - Music And Noises From Roma Est - LP, they strike back with some great new stuff: 10 killer songs for "Die Trauerweide" LP (eng. weeping willow). They might be two but they sound like a six pieces band! Groove drumming and percussions, killer synths and guitars, female/male schizo voices combined with a dadaist pop attitude into a mix of no-wave, weird punk and hypnotic synth atmospheres.

At times TvsG sound like the Residents with a punk drummer, in others like a weird japanese electronic pop band from the '80s, while some other tracks bring us back to the no-wave of Lizzy Mercier Descloux and DNA. These are only some analogies, because they've got totally a personal and original sound.
Intense, dancey, wacky, sweaty, catchy: Die Trauerweide is a great album. 35mins of pleasure for Body and Mind!

And just a suggestion: they are often on tour (more then 300 shows all over Europe, USA and Canada in the last 6 years), if you got the chance, go and see their live show: it will blow your mind!

C30 - Black Cassette
cover printed on risograph - black / orange fluo
artwork by: Francesco de Figueiredo
edition of 100 copies
release date: 24th April 2013

It's been a while NO=FI recordings didn't have out a rock'n'roll release. So here were now, happy to be back with a GREAT rock'n'roll album. 
WILDMEN is a duo and we love 'em: young motherfuckers, funny guys, the live show is wild as the name says... and they got such an amazing album out! 
Some songs reminds me of Black Flag (keep an eye on the drummer!), other stuff is more kind of Ty Segall and Black Lips style: guitar riffs able to be stocked in your mind for ages! 11 killer tracks you can play again and again and again...
They toured Europe in 2012, with two singles out - 20.000$ and I Spit On Your Graves - and after this came a split with the fantastic Capputtini I Lignu
Now we are glad to put out the cassette version of their debut album (LP out on Shit Music For Shit People).
They will be back on the road all around Europe in May: check 'em out!

you can listen a couple of songs 


Haters gonna hate
Born after midnight

Goin’ away
Migrant love

NO=FI Recordings / Sound Of Cobra

Ensemble Economique / Heroin In Tahiti – Split 
It’s a well-known story: the bluesmen sold their souls at dusty crossroads back in the old days. Far less is known about a younger generation’s deal with the devil, their affinity towards dark forces and black magic. Their hypnagogic highway to hell and success goes en route Tahiti where souls no longer can be sold because they’re already lost in secret Voodoo rites. The music that springs from having experienced these horror trips is as seductive as Lisa Bonet drinking a little red rooster’s blood! Be warned: This is a one-way ticket, no refunds, no exorcism included.

Ensemble Economique strikes back with a great album, sounds and attitude head back to his earlyer recordings and the amazing "Psychical" (Not Not Fun, 2010): immediate, primal, raw... ace!

Second album out for the Heroin In Tahiti, after their first "Death Surf" LP (Boring Machines, 2012), which was considered a kind of manifesto of the "spaghetti wasteland" attitude, as told in a conversation between Simon Reynolds and Valerio Mattioli, and listed in the 50 best albums of 2012 by FACT Magazine. A great mix of synths, surf, drone, Morricone and some typical 'Italian vibe'.
