in the 1973 year by experienced and famous
musicians, former members of name bands

BANCO DEL MUTUO SOCCORSO (Marcello Todaro), RACCOMANDATA RICEVUTA DI RITORNO
and SAMADHI (Nanni Civitenga),
ALPHATAURUS (Giorgio Santandrea),
and under the guidance of Paolo Tofani
(AREA and ELECTRIC FRANKENSTEIN)
that composed all of their tracks.
They recorded an album that was intended
for release on Cramps label, but for mysterious
reasons, it never appeared, and has only seen
