EGISTO MACCHI – “BIORITMI” (197?)
Unpredictable and considerably spooky Italian library record with pieces named after biological stuff (“Cardiac Valve”, stomach “Peristalsis”, mycoplasmosis “Microscope”, “Laboratory”, etc.), but sounding like a grab-you-by-the-throat giallo. Not exactly sure what menacing Spaghetti Western-style fuzz guitar and spidery string sections have to do with a track named after the wave-like muscle contractions that pass food down the digestive tract, but if this is the sound of digestion, then I probably should start eating milder foods. Whatever the case, it’s rad.
