Gruppo d'Alternativa


Gruppo d’Alternativa was formed in Milano in the early 70’s and managed to release one album (named “Ipotesi”) before they splitted and drowned into futher obscurity. Some could consider them as a ‘proto-RIO’ band due to their activity long before the first RIO movement in the late 70’s, and their alternative and experimental prog-rock sound confirms this well although they also reveal some notable Jazz-Rock/Canterbury influences in their sound.

Some could consider them as a ‘proto-RIO’ band due to their activity long before the first RIO movement in the late 70’s, and their alternative and experimental prog-rock sound confirms this well although they also reveal some notable Jazz-Rock/Canterbury influences in their sound. Ipotesi was based on the death of a friend of the band who was killed in a road accident some time before the album was written, but whenever this explains the bands musical approach is unknown. After a request for a more commercial second album from the record company, the band decided to disband.

They are a very unpredictable and playful band musically, but at the same time quite challenging, especially for more unexperienced listeners. They have a typical Italian sound, something that could easily associate them with other Italian Progressive Rock bands, but their experimental and RIO-ish music gained them a place in the RIO/Avant genre. This band should especially appeal to fans of Etron Fou Leloublan, Slapp Happy and Henry Cow/Art Bears. Read more on Last.fm.
