CHROMAGAIN were Luca
Pastore (bass, guitar, synthesiser, lyrics, backing vocals), Silvio Ferrero
(synthesisers) and Davide Bassino (vocals, lyrics) from
Torino, Italy, and was formed in 1982. CHROMAGAIN had two other
singers (at first Riccardo Acuto, then Danilo ‘Dana’ Barbero) before Davide
Bassino joined as the main vocalist and core member. They started as a
post-punk outfit in 1982, then evolving to one of the top-notch Italian
electronic dark wave bands. The influence of Joy Division/New Order is
inevitable, the playful and melodic bass and lots of synthesisers form the
backbone to their songs. In 1985 they released their only vinyl mini-LP “Any
Colour You Like” (Supporti Fonografici, SF 004; this label was also home of the
similar sounding Weimar Gesang) which was recorded at TKS studio together Mauro
Tavella and Andrea Costa of MONUMENTS fame, so no wonder you may recognize some
similarity (the Simmons drum machine on those recording sessions, DX-7 synthesiser,
etc.). The mini-LP had five tracks ranging from the rather most Italian dark
wave sounding “Satisfied” to the up-beat track “Spot”, from the dark wave
killer “Killing Dome” (oh that bass… this is for the goth clubs) to the
hauntingly beautiful ballad “After the Clouds” and finally to their most New
Order-ish track “Season of Steel”. “Any Colour You Like” has been a highly
sought-after and expensive rarity ever since and a re-issue was more than
overdue, so here is “Any Colour We Liked”, a retrospective compilation of
CHROMAGAIN’s works: The vinyl version of “Any Colour We Liked” includes the
complete and remastered mini-LP “Any Colour You Like”, plus “Wake Up” (a
different version to the one previously released on the “Danza Meccanica –
Italian Synth Wave 1982-
1987” LP/CD compilation, MNQ 005/ITN 012), “Ethnicbox”
from the “Tracce” LP compilation (1984, Shirak, CNW 8440) plus a previously
unreleased Dub Instrumental version of “Season of Steel” and artwork by Mushy
(Valentina Fanigliulo), thus covering their later phase from 1984/85 with
Davide on vocals. The digipak-CD version comes with a different artwork (by
Steve Lippert) and an additional six bonus tracks covering all their recordings
back to 1982 including a demo version of “Killing Dome”, an alternative early
‘whistle’ version of “Spot” and the tracks featuring the other two singers,
Riccardo and Dana.
