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.

I am very glad to present to your attention an album of an experemental band of Radiomaniac under the name: "Antenna Theory"
It is one of the most mad things in the direction of post-rock, without foolish smack of ambient. The most real maniacs in creation of unusual sound landscapes in which strong communicate electronics, post-hardcore and noise. It is the present song of radio waves, not human music created by people for people.
That they speak about themselves:
"Radiomaniac - four from the island of mixed marriages, talented brewers and, deceiving topographical intuition, the routes, the Distances impressed with painting, Sonic Youth and Nirvana plates, clips The Prodigy, David Lynch's movies, plants, mines, urbanism, the sound effects upset with guitars, faulty sound pickups, a happening - art, infinite night conversations, and also such groups as: Mogwai, 65 days of static, Joy Division, Radiohead, Pink Floyd, HTRK, Velvet Underground, Television.
As a whole sounding of group similar to if Tom York, Tyorston Moore, Dominique Eytchison and Stephen Morris in common would began to play 65 days of static changing Nirvana, in the spirit of Nine Inch Nails.
We never used an acid, did not arrange a session of group meditation, did not play composition lasting over 6 minutes, did not think of the name for group which would consist of 4 words and more, did not do myself in quality оберегов a figure of participants of God is an astronaut."

Celebrating 50 releases on Noise Problems we decided to throw a party. For the 50th release we decided to record that party. The Secret Love Parade returns to Noise Problems a year after the OCCII recording from the Pageturner nr1 night, as well as NewYX formerly known as Storm from the Recipe Book night at the Winston release and introducing to Noise Probs two amazing bands Katadreuffe and Pony Pack. We are thrilled to have them complete the evening and make a fine extent to our live recordings collection.
March 11, 2011 was the date set for the event held at the OCCII in Amsterdam to celabrate the 50 releases at Noise Problems. All started quite natural recording a few nights here and there and before we knew it we had reached 50 bands on Noise Probs.
We had to do something about and decided to throw a party where we could choose the bands to record and called up some of the local Amsterdam bands we knew from the scene. The Secret Love Parade were the perfect act of solid electronic beats and postmodern pop melodies to kick things off and set a mood for the evening. New YX where also known to us. Their sound is dary, a fusion of danceable electro and post-rock tunes great to make the transition to the loud part of the night.
Soon after Noise Problems debutants Pony Pack made the crowd move and the heat to rise with fiery guitar riffs. Katadreuffe sealed it by combining most of the above elements into their noisy, post-punkish (massive) sound wave which enveloped everyone in the place into a tight hug.
Also for the occasion of the 50th release a compilation was issued to commemorate. Its 23 tracks are available in 6 volumes for download here at the FMA. Great tracks selected from amongst the first 50 Noise Problems releases. Check out the Selections too. All shows were recorded live between 2007 and 2010 at various Amsterdam venues.

Originally a one-man ambient project, now a duo, Plastic Flowers consists of G. Samaras and Anjel Paschalidis. They write experimental pop music, creating dreamy melodies with taped beats, reverbed guitars and ethereal choirs. Both of them are self-taught musicians and heavily influenced by artists as The Notwist, Slowdive, Boards of Canada and Sneaker Pimps.
