A.T.R.O.X.
The Night's Remains

Definitely ahead of their time, A.T.R.O.X. were one of the first bands to move beyond the New Wave styles and introduce strong electronic elements. Not too far from works of contemporary groups such as Tuxedomoon and Minimal Compact. "The Night’s Remains" was originally released in 1982 on the Trinciato Forte Records label. Back in print on LP for the first time in 30+ years thanks to the fine folks at Spittle. “I'm quite happy with this renewed interest in A.T.R.O.X. It is quite amazing that Mojo Magazine mentioned one of our tracks among the best of the Italian New Wave, and it's incredible that some friends from Sicily wrote to me how important our two albums were for them. And, indeed, they were also important for me and for my travelling companions; nowadays each of us sails on his own route, but those days the sound was made of our common energy. We were discovering the New Wave (Tuxedomoon, The Residents, Chrome) and we ourselves were the New Wave. The sound flowed like water from the tap, and it was nice to walk along the streets of old Piacenza late at night laughing like fools without fear of any challenge.” (Francesco Paolo Paladino)
