La Corsa (CNI/Tomato)

Now truly a rock band with a Salentine heart, Radicanto's 2005 excursion explores the sound and fury of sourthern Italy with an ear to the global pop music scene.

"La Corsa is a record that balances on a thin line but lands on the right side. The new songs are interesting and memorable, while the traditional ones sound refreshed, brand new, poignant and provide a timeless commentary on our times, thus achieving what the band aimed for. Radicanto have taken a crash course that let them remain one of the most interesting Italian bands of late." - Nondas Kitsos, RootsWorld

Press from the record label:

A new musical journey for the band from Bari: rock sounds, progressive pop and folk, a meeting between the Italian language and a vernacular, with a constant attention to more common and popular stories, free on the track of an error, where the authorís music is driven by the direct and warm voices of Fabrizio Piepoli and Enzo Granella, the rhythm of Daniele Abbinante, Pierpaolo Martino and Adolfo La Volpe, the wind instruments by Vittorio Gallo and the stories and strings of Giuseppe De Trizio.

In the mirror of a modern musical base such as Italy, balanced between 1900 and 2000, when we have removed aspects such as passion, lightness and poetry, but also wars, delirium and obsessions, that which occupies centre stage are the essential keywords for understanding this complex and contradictory historical age that continues to produce effects on the present.

In this "Cosmo-comic" reality (in the words of Italo Calvino), the new work by Radicanto verticalizes itself in the analysis of a contemporary authorís Grammatik, focusing attention on modern images through stories from the past.

Radicantoís sound is recognizable in all their works: micro-melodies that shape harmonies and a renewed attention to dialects and languages.

Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
