The Doubling Riders – The World Of The Doubling Riders 6xCD Boxset (Spittle Records, SPITTLE 75)
Spittle Records in co-operation with Officine Fonografiche Italiane present The World Of The Doubling Riders, The Doubling Riders‘ complete works. The Doubling Riders were born in the middle of the ’80s from the ashes of A.T.R.O.X. and around the trio of Francesco Paladino, Pier Luigi Andreoni, and Riccardo Sinigaglia. Especially thanks to their collaboration with international artists such as Pascal Comelade, Ira Stein, and Vox Populi, The Doubling Riders stand out from the rest of other Italian bands of the time. Starting from an electronic music approach and working freely with ethno, folk and wave elements, the sound of the Doubling Riders was extremely original and quite hard to classify. Even if often compared to some of the more intellectual new wave bands like Tuxedomoon, Doubling Riders can be easily considered a unique project within the Italian new music scene. This six-CD box contains the whole of their four albums produced between 1985 and 1991: Doublings & Silences Volume I (1985), Doublings & Silences Volume II (1988), World! (1989), and Garama (1991). All properly remastered, including the first two available on CD for the first time, plus a bonus CD containing a selection of previously unpublished material and rare tracks from the same period. Includes 24-page booklet collecting all information together with some unpublished pictures.
