VA – Italo Deviance Vol. 1 [IDR001]

Italo Deviance Blog celebrates its first birthday with three killer edits on 12”. On the A side you’ll find an extended & very powerful “I wanted to tell her” by Ministry edited by Marcello Giordani. The B side contains an obscure track made in Canada but very Italo Disco flavored “Ladies Choice – American man” edited by Ajello and a crazy edit by special guest Beppe Loda of the release ”Captain Future – Freinde Greife An” (the German soundtrack of a cartoon from the early ‘80s).
