Gli Alluminogeni


A trio from Turin, formed in 1970 by keyboard player Alluminio (hence the name of the band) and drummer Ostorero with various guitarists (Guido Maccario, Aldo, Andrea Sacchi, Piero Tonello, then Enrico Cagliero), they only lasted for a couple of years and their only album, Scolopendra, was issued when they had already split. The group had obtained their record deal by a lucky chance, a demo tape was sent around and they were contacted by Fonit for a single and to play the Cantagiro festival with no previous live experience Read more on Last.fm
A trio from Turin, formed in 1970 by keyboard player Alluminio (hence the name of the band) and drummer Ostorero with various guitarists (Guido Maccario, Aldo, Andrea Sacchi, Piero Tonello, then Enrico Cagliero), they only lasted for a couple of years and their only album, Scolopendra, was issued when they had already split. The group had obtained their record deal by a lucky chance, a demo tape was sent around and they were contacted by Fonit for a single and to play the Cantagiro festival with no previous live experience, in front of 15000 people audiences. After four singles released between 1970 and 1971, in which the band limits are evident, the album is very well made, mainly based on Hammond organ and other keyboards, with good instrumental parts even if the voice is a bit thin and the sound seems dated now. First side has more vocal parts and is lightweight in comparison, the second side is more instrumental and much better. Despite a long time spent in rehearsing the album tracks, the group was totally unsatisfied by the production work made by Fonit to transform it into a more commercial product, and this was one of the main reasons for them to split. The band reformed in 1993 and released two CD's for Vinyl Magic, with good results.

The last of these, Green grapes (this has been the name of the group before changing it to Alluminogeni) is a compilation of old and new unreleased recordings, and also includes an english version of their first single L'alba di Bremit. Keyboardist/singer Patrizio Alluminio also released a solo single, Tu anima mia on Fonit in 1975, that was in fact an unreleased cut from the Alluminogeni LP.
