Spettro Records: a small place for experimental music. Celebrating 6 years with its third compilation!
It's been 6 years of Spettro Records. 6 years is a long time, if you want it to be. And at this moment in my life it feels as they've been forever, and I certainly won't be getting them back...
Spettro started more as an outlet for what me and friends were doing and recording ( Salomè Lego Playset, STUFA, Achievements, all of them dead projects... ), then grew into something different, a netlabel sui generis, mostly net / sometimes physical label ( of abysmal sales ), but anyway a home to us, and then to so many artists from everywhere in the world, so many I can't thank enough for trusting me and my instincts and who have allowed me to share their wonderful and unique music. It's still a home for me, for my own work ( SLP, which in the years has become more and more secondary), and of those artists which made up most of 2010's first compilation only few remain. So many have passed by, donated their work and passed on to different, probably better, labels. Some have quit music altogether. Some have moved to bigger things and achieved much deserved success, while some have freely and so generously donated a release even if Spettro was much below their label standards. I'm happy to think that Spettro has been The One, out of so many, that they chose, out of their free will, despite all the other, maybe better, choices around. Spettro can't offer much but a tiny and cozy home of uproaring silence, "a small place for experimental music" indeed.
So many artists are still joining, from everywhere in the world, and it's this fluctuating and stateless nature that makes Spettro so special to me and, hopefully, to you. It is an honor to host your music, and seeing younger people writing and joining Spettro gives me hope and pride.
This third installment offers the best that Spettro has and will have to offer in the years to come. Hopefully, other 3 years, and then another compilation will come, new people will join, and new pages will be written and leafed through. Perhaps at least. Fingers crossed. That's why the title, Chapter 4: Makkuraysmi no Jinsei : La stagione della Notte )", starts with "chapter 4", hence a compilation looking ahead, at another chapter. Then the "season of darkness", "la stagione della notte", 2016 and what remains of these last few years: very little, loss, hardship, confusion and despair, a night never ending, nothing but darkness ahead. Hope and despair.
This sampler is also in memory of Kelly Churko, incredible musician, unpredictable improviser, fierce alchemist of sound and composer of truth who passed away too soon. I'd also like to remember Ryo Tsuchiya of Senseless Records and of so many old and new school punk and rock'n'roll bands, whose path I briefly crossed back in 2008 and whose memory I will cherish.?
This album is for those who know Spettro, those who chose Spettro, and those who never heard of it, and maybe never will. This is for me as much as it is for you.

Hello! This is Mike Matthews taking the bus to THE LAST PLACE ON EARTH! This week we have a very special guest all the way from England named Eliza Doolittle. Her debut album has gone platinum over there and now it's being released here in the States! We'll talk to her and find out interesting tidbits you can't find out anywhere else with a singer who is constantly honored on "you tube" in her home country. Her album comes out here on March 22nd. I can not believe gas prices! They're blaming it on Libya but reports say most of their gas doesn't go to us but to Europe. I think they blame anything to crank the prices up. Ow, I hurt my finger, crank gas prices up. Do my bidding!People were protesting FOX news in Wisconsin while they were there covering the union issues going on. Now can we all get together and protest EVERYTHING that's on TV? It's all crap! I am forcing myself to watch the Oscar's this weekend, but then, that's it! Amazon's competing with Netflix now with their special streaming movies feature. I never have to watch TV again!Next week we'll feature some of the "unheard" bits of my interview with singer/songwriter Ben Wilkins. We'll also hear from the cafe characters including Chely Shoehart, the Disgruntled Fiddle Player, Benita the Rodeo Queen, Floyd the Floorman, Valentino the Parking Attendant, Bison Bentley, The Brewmaster, and John Boehner. I know how much you miss them!So here's EFFIZODE NUMBER 20! Yayyy! I've finally produced a podcast that has gone to TWENTY!!! I'm so happy! Listen to the Eliza interview and find out about my recent "open mic" (the first one I've done in over FIVE YEARS!!!).

This album was recorded at Sertso Studio in Woodstock, NY during October of 2007 - a period that culminated in one of the infamously historic BLOB live shows, this one complete with interactive video at Woodstock's Byrdcliffe Theater on All Hallows Eve.
The show sent folks running out into the woods howling. We hope the album strikes a similarly visceral chord with any and all listeners!
Ted "Deadly Tedly" Orr - midi guitar
John "Geeze" Lindberg - processed double bass
