To mark both the Centenary of Italy’s involvement in World War 1 and the 10th Anniversary of IANVA’s (long deleted) debut on CD, Alpha South is happy to announce a special release.
Being both a tribute and a warm thank you to all IANVA fans.This is not simply a reissue but an encapsulation of the mood, the spirit and the events leading to the birth of the band and to the creation of their debut “Disobbedisco!”.
This new pristine re-issue restores the debut as it was originally conceived prior to the early WW1 inspiration being replaced by the romance of D'Annunzio's Exploit of Fiume - and the tragic love affair between Major Renzi and Elettra Stavros. 4 previously released tracks (already part of the sold-out and impossible to be found EPs “La Ballata dell'Ardito” and “L'Occidente”) plus 4 outtakes from some early pre-“Disobbedisco!” sessions (including a rare demo-version of “Terra Bruciata”, originally written by Italian wave band Mystery Plays). While you await IANVA's next brand new album, enjoy this special release. For all those who don't want to forget, it's time for Blood, Courage and Love again.
