Spontaneous and uncompromising as the first beat that animated the label soul, here comes directly from Glasgow Stuart Evans, one style halfway between dream, soundtrack for lysergic films and a kick in the eye, precisely.
Pizzico is pleased to be detached again from the digital, sterile and well equalized mono-sound around the web to delve into the darkness of a read and forgotten disco presenting a truly talented artist: Les Diaboliques.

"John Coltrane and a kick in the eye" sounds detached and unusual from the first listen… Title track spacing out and bouncing from wave to a funky beat and almost electronic, Komische change course heading towards a casket full of liquid sharp blades and voices from beyond, Jupiter and beyond! A planet where a crude bass and an arpeggiator commenting on the dangerous escape of an antihero of space.
It's with Faraway Beach Les Diaboliques that touches the tip of an esoteric mountain though, surrounded by the voice of none other than Emily McLaren also known as Michael Dracula (you got it, Ze Records) ep takes you on a journey between the unknown and evocative, confirming that strange things are often fascinating.

Composed & Arranged by Stuart Evans
