Style: New Wave / Acoustic
Very special ‘Anthology’ by this legendary Italian New Wave group, founded in Milan in 1979 by Edgardo Moia Cellerino and Tiberio Boncristiano (still members of the group). The name is borrowed from a poem contained in the "Flowers of Evil" by Baudelaire. Initially, the lyrics were in English, as Le Masque was heavily influenced by British postpunk.
In 1984 they recorded their first 12” titled "The Happy Flock", containing three songs in English. 2 years later Le Masque left the English language for Italian, a language certainly more suiteable to their atmospheres.
