Review by Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly 1236

"This is the second release I hear from Greathumour (see also Vital Weekly 1220), but now in a more condensed form. On Bandcamp, they say about this 7", "an album, to be divided, on seven-inch" and, also, about the music, 'jazz-inspired, psychedelic noise nonsense". One of the things I was wondering about is the title of the first side. Is that a dedication to Italy's finest industrial home? Or perhaps there is another meaning? As on their (?) cassette they work with organ drones and noise, and on 'Lucid Conviction' this all working towards that power drone, the uber hiss if you want, or drone ambient wall (is DAW already in use as a musical genre?). It gets stuck between the wings of the aeroplane (or the motor of the Bontempi used) and is quite a beast. Great, fine. However, 'Old Europa Cafe' is something else. Here we have the same organ, but also drums and there is indeed an attempt at jazz (I thought I was hearing some vocals as well; maybe I was delusional) and there is a building of amplification going throughout the six minutes this piece lasts. Here to things get stuck in the machine, start repeating until someone untangles the web and it is put back on track again. Great track, this one. A lathe cut record, limited to 20 copies, so you have to hurry up."
