Radar - Una Splendida Emicrania

A search for more Italian new wave on turned up this nugget. Old news for some but new to me. The chord progression reminds me a Dave Grohl-penned Nirvana B-side called "Marigold", of all things. Pretty crucial material here. I'm glad I didn't completely miss the boat on this one.

Recorded October 1981. Una splendida emicrania = "a wonderful headache"

La parti elettroniche dell'LP sono state suonate senza ausilio di computer o automatismi.
"The electronic parts of the LP have been played without the aid of computers or automation."

Nicola Salerno: voce, Korg MS10, Yamaha CS80, Roland Jupiter 4, batteria elettronica
Alessandro Ceradini: voce
Bruno Marini: assolo clarinetto basso
