Metamorphosis Club proudly presents:
Pankow " - " (Electro industrial pioneers)
Friday 15th November 2019 at Traffic Club, Rome.
The Pankow formed in Florence in 1981 due to the will of Maurizio Fasolo (aka FM; author of the solo album "Angelus"; ex-member of Clock DVA and Neon; occasional producer of Clock DVA, Lssigue Bendthaus, Bigod 20, Attrition, Sabotage, Temple Beat, Black Rose, Brazil, Hard Sonic B.3) together with Massimo Michelotti and Alex Spalck. With this line-up they released the ep "Das Vodka Chaos" -the vodka chaos- in 1984.
In 1986 the new album by the Pankow entitled "Freiheit Fuer Die Sklaven" -freedom for the slaves- came out on the Florentine label Contempo (which will keep on releasing their records until the bankruptcy). In this lp Paolo Favati (ex-Temple Beat; Lassigue Bendthaus, Swamp Terrorist, Limbo, Sabotage, MeatHead, Temple Beat, Brazil, 100 Club W.W.F. Fabba, Alex D. Steak, L-R. producer; Blue Velvet studio & Dune Records ) and Alex Gimignani (Pick-Up, Gruppo L'Unità, Andropausa, Exit, John Trick and theTic-Tac Star, 84 Reflex, Doggy Clowners, Neon, Mystic Band, Linea, Reggae Revolution, Clock DVA, Acid Folk Alleanza member) played for the first time.
The Pankow released further five albums and a number of singles on other important labels of the international electronic scene: Wax Trax (US), KK (B), Cashbeat (D), ABC (UK), Gennex (Czech), Minus Habens (I). The Pankow releases were produced among the others by Adrian Sherwood (On-U Sound), Rico Conning (Mute) and Paul Kendall (Mute, Factory).
In 1993 after the release of "Treue Hunde" -faithful dogs- the Pankow entered a period of forced pause which determined the discographical silence until 1995, the year in which the new explosive album by the preeminently Florentine electronic group, featuring this time on the (italian) voice Gianluca "Limbo" Becuzzi.
The Pankow undeniably represent a very important key band within the italian but even european electronic scene and their presence influenced a number of other projects of the EBM-industrial outline. The fact they are back today is fundamental in this period in order to restate the native brutality of this kind of musical expressions.
The following interview was done by a faithful (treue) contributor, Diego "Kebab" Loporcaro, and is divided into four parts, respectively as many parts as the Pankow members.
