Somewhere in between psych-rock, avant-garde jazz and funky jams. The sound is definitely experimental and ostentatiously "underground"- The music, anyway, is thrilling. the drum patterns, in particular, are extraordinary: regular, tight, groovy, and incredibly close to the "motorik" beat of Can and Neu! "The group" was not a band of young beatniks. As a matter of fact, it's just a pseudonym for Gruppo d'Improvvisazione nuova consonanza, a side project of well known soundtrack composer Ennio morricone along with other experimental musicians. the rock-focused attitude of the record is quite surprising for such a team of classically-trained men already in their forties.
