BRAEN, RASKOVICH - ABNORMAL SENSATIONS (LP)


"Collectively known under their production pop group moniker The Pawnshop, Italian Giallo/Spaghetti musicians Alessandro Alessandroni, Giuliano Sorgini and Giulia De Mutiis (using their Giallo-psych alter egos of Braen, Raskovich and Kema) would reconvene behind the curtain in 1973 to craft this lost full-length LP as a mythical addition to their tiny group discography. Pin-pointing a bona fide crossroads between the composers' individual library grails 'The Underground' and 'Living Dead At The Manchester Morgue', this previously commercially unreleased slice of abstract Giallo stoner funk combines Alessandroni's inimitable twang-happy growling fuzz and desperately inquisitive guitar/harp/dulcimer manipulations with Sorgini's eery industrial scrapes, moaning echoes and face-slapping percussion grooves (found on his rare TV soundtracks like 'Zoo Folle' or the undercover work he did for library labels like Leo, Leonardi, National and Lupus). The inclusion of Alessandroni's wife Giulia De Mutiis on groaning wordless vocal duties not only completes The Pawnshop trinity but adds the essential Giallo sheen popularised by Morricone regular Edda Dell'Orso (evoking clear comparisons to that of 'Lizard In A Woman's Skin' and 'Veruschka')."
