Trax Test: Excerpts From The Modular Network 1981-1987
Of all the ‘new wave’ noise to come out of Italy in the last five years this compilation puts some much-needed historical roots to it all. Can’t imagine the DIY, uncompromising Trax Collective would have approved of such lux packaging (who knows) but it sure is nice to hold, read and listen through. 100 per cent worth the price and credit unreservedly due for the absolute feat putting this whole thing together. Everyone is yelling comparisons  to mnml wave and vinyl-on-demand comps but it might actually be Daniele Baldelli who is a better touchstone for a compilation like this. Fun(ny) to think about when you're listening to different aliases and members of such giants as Merzbow, Nurse With Wound and Caroline K. Truly cosmic.
