Catasto Elettrico


No rehearsals, no concerts, Catasto Elettrico has always been something more than a “cult”, “invisible” band. Following the idea (utopia) of total improvisation in the telepathic Miles Davis way, during the years they lived a sort of parallel life. At the beginning, after several years of practise in the usual blues-rock bands, they formed a power-progressive trio (organ, bass, drums) and gave regular concerts.

No rehearsals, no concerts, Catasto Elettrico has always been something more than a “cult”, “invisible” band. Following the idea (utopia) of total improvisation in the telepathic Miles Davis way, during the years they lived a sort of parallel life. At the beginning, after several years of practise in the usual blues-rock bands, they formed a power-progressive trio (organ, bass, drums) and gave regular concerts. Their music consisted in re-arranged covers of Traffic, EL&P, Hendrix, some original instrumentals, minimalist sequences influenced by Terry Riley, Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze and a lot of music and mood from Miles Davis to Nucleus, Soft Machine (which were not so famous at the time), Weather Report and Herbie Hancock.

Everything was pulled together in long suites, and when the group began to improvise very free, the public decided that was definitively too much. The group ended his last official concert in front of an audience consisting of three people (including the bassist’s girlfriend). Therefore the group decided to follow his own inspiration, piling electric and electronic sounds and rumours. One step backward and two steps forward, they renounced the concerts and retired in a large penthouse, choosing to play unique, improvised sessions and to record them as better as possible. No snobbery, the penthouse was open to everyone.

So, every session was a sort of happening, sometimes for a few friends, sometimes in a larger scale. Friends spread the news and a small group of admirers spontaneously grew up. The group never recorded a true record, except for the self-produced vinyl “Modern Jazz Sessions”, now a joy for collectors (even the members of the band don’t have any copy, since they were stolen several years ago along with a beautiful Hammond organ). But a lot of material exists, and sometimes of a higher quality, with a better sound than a bootleg. The Internet era gives us now the chance to listen to a lot of hidden music from the past, with lots of buried treasures raising from musical blogs and .mp3 exchange..
