Fireplays

Allein / Hormone

Release date: January 17, 2020
Label: Disco Segreta
Format: LP Album
Twelve inch vinyl pressing of this lost Italian 1981 release. Fireplays was the moniker chosen in 1981 by Italian producer Franco Pagliaccia for an instant-band project composed by him and a few other musicians. The original idea was to tune in with the "dance" era, with a band that could sing either in German, Italian or English. "Allein" b/w "Hormone" was released in mid-1982, and as can be clearly heard, both tracks clearly show the mutation disco as a genre started having at the very beginning of the '80s, in Europe too: a blend of electro, along with new-wavish elements and some classic era-blueprint sonic elements: synth driven melodies, filtered vocodered choruses, pads, swirling cosmic sounds, cowbells, all topped by a powerful male voice that will give genuine connoisseurs an exact era Zeitgeist, along with assured goosebumps.
