Italian band Confusional Quartet (Lucio Ardito on bass, Gianni Cuoghi on drums, Enrico Serotti on guitar, Marco Bertoni on keyboards) was stylistically
related to punk-rock, the new wave of the Residents
and Devo, and the "no wave" of DNA,
but always kept a humorous and catchy tone, perhaps a descendant of the
Italian "varieta`" (music-hall). They mixed the aesthetic issues of
demented rock, artistic revisionism and the jazz avantgarde.
Their album Confusional Quartet (1980)
is a mad parade of brief, frantic, zany, futuristic instrumental miniatures.
It stands out as both
an aural experiment, a post-modernist experiment, and a melodic experiment.
The EPs Confusional Quartet (1981) and Documentario (1981) were
Confusional Quartet (Elica) reissues material from 1980-81.
