RENATO ZERO – Via Tagliamento (1965-1970)

17 Jun

The one and only Glam Rocker(with an arty feel) of Italy.Nowhere near to Bowie theatrics,nor to Ferry luxurious extravaganza,Zero blended the cultural tradition of Italy,the literature of Ancient Romans and Greeks and the optical decadence of European pop/glam 70s.His lyrics and music are full of strange mythical creatures,paganistic chants,illusions of a well maintained Ancient Theater as the one he was dreaming of.Not an easy listen as a whole artist, but the above collection of his early stuff is a good introduction both to his 60s -near hits-songs as well to his later difficult manoeuvres.
