To mark both the Centenary of Italy’s involvement in World War 1 and the 10th Anniversary of IANVA’s debut “La Ballata Dell’Ardito” on CD, Alpha South announces a special vinyl re-release of “La Ballata Dell’Ardito”, renamed as “La Ballata Dell’Ardito – Memento X-C”.
This re-issue – available here on vinyl – restores the debut as it was originally conceived prior to the early WW1 inspiration being replaced by the romance of D’Annunzio’s “Exploit of Fiume”. The reissue holds the 4 previously released tracks (already part of the sold-out EPs “La Ballata Dell’Ardito” and “L’Occidente”) plus 4 outtakes from some early pre-“Disobbedisco!” sessions (including a rare demo-version of “Terra Bruciata”, originally written by Italian wave band Mystery Plays).
Here’s an outtake from this release.
Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you. The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
