LP released 1991, ADN Records

Italian art collective out of Brianza, Italy, Tasaday (from a supposed lost Philippines tribe) began releasing cassettes under various names in the begining of the 1980s, mixing art, happenings and industrial-experimental music under the initial influence of Throbbing Gristle. At the time of the release of ‘L’Ultima Risata’, their 3rd proper LP, their music had incorporated avantgarde and art rock elements, not unlike some Tuxedomoon. This splendid LP mixes acoustic and keyboard sounds, some with prominent rhythms, some pure electronic soundscapes, as well as a few songs bearing a distinctly Death In June flavor. Acoustic instruments and vocals allows for a live overall feeling, with several musicians contributing their own styles to the music, adding depth and interest to a great LP with various moods. Some ingredients seems typically italian, like the lyrical synth anthems, declamatory poetry, martial drum patterns contrasted the next moment with solo flute. Note one of Tasaday’s latest and most experimental CD, 2003 Kaspar Project, is available for free download at wallacerecords.com.
