The album is called Requiescat In Plavem and will feature liner notes by Mike Donovan of Sic Alps & Peacers (Drag City). When I received this record I had no idea what I was getting myself into. It came with no notes, just a letter in broken English. For days I made up lyrics to it trying to crack and uncover the language, dreaming of some Latin American retreat. Little did I know I was actually taking a stroll up the Piave river, plunging through pre-war cascades, seeing feverish trees set mountains in motion and a Veneto valley full of psychedelic beauty naked in front of my eyes. The man was from Prosecco region, in Veneto and the record is all stories based around the Piave river (close to Venice, ends in the Adriatic Sea). Krano recorded R.I.P up in the hills behind Valdobbiadene, armed with a trusty 8-track tape machine. Then he disappeared into silence. As always it took a faithful caring friend to deliver the goods and send me that letter. Four years later here we are, music on wax, a man that deserves to be heard and a river that is still flowing. The record is sung in Veneto dialect, the region around Venice. It's a very weird and raw mix of 70s era Neil Young, Meat Puppets, Country Teasers, Morricone, 60s Italian music, Skip Spence and a ton of different things.
