      Written and arranged by Mordy Laye Drums - Karl-Peter Saggz Produced by Markey Funk for Agitacao Popular Video by PlanktON Taken off the V/A "No Coast Productions Collection #2" (2010) The mystery of Mordy Laye. It was late May 2009 when I was awakened by a phone call from an unidentified number. A man, who didn't introduce himself, said that he has some rare music material that may interest me. An hour later, he picked me up from home and took me to what seemed to be his house in Tzur Hadassah, a small town near Jerusalem. On the way he told me a story about a band that used to practice at his neighbour's house back in the late 1970's. They rehearsed almost every day for nearly two years, but they had never performed on stage. A few years later, when the house had been sold to someone else, a box of magnetic tapes was found in the basement. My mysterious stranger (who still refused to reveal his identity) had taken these tapes to his place, where he discovered that these were raw unfinished 8-track recordings of some rather extraordinary music, inspired by European library and electronic composers of its time. When we arrived at his house, he took me to the cabinet and showed me the box with the name "Mordy Laye" written on it. I asked if he was going to give me the tapes. "No,” he replied, “I'll give you these recordings in digital format. I've made a copy of each channel separately. And you will make an album out of all this material. I like your style and your dedication to the 60's and 70's sound and I think I'm putting Mordy's music in the right hands". When I pressed him for more details on the band and the recordings, he only said, "Give me your flash drive - I'll make a copy for you". In 7 minutes we were already on our way back. Back home I realized that I had forgotten to get his phone number. I had no pictures of either him or the box of tapes; I didn't even know his name. I knew how his house looked like, but later, when I tried to find him in Tzur Hadassah, my friend and I spent 3 hours searching across the entire area to no avail. Curiously, nothing looked familiar. All I had now were Mordy's raw recordings from 30-odd years ago- and a mission. "Electric Paint" sounded to me the closest to be complete, so this was the first tune that I produced, adding some sounds and a spoken word. In late 2010 I was joined by Mule Driver, whom I knew as a die-hard fan of early electronic music and all things related to it. One year later we've completed the album and it will see the light in the fall of 2012. After more than 30 years this musical journey will finally be completed... I'm still looking for ANY information regarding Mordy Laye and his mysterious band.

                To describe GustoForte, to give some dialect shape to the electro-magnetic throbbings that come out from the record , to try drawing, with grammatic help also that more basic, a logic or a descriptive way, it’s complex. And not because exists a multi-shape objective difficulty but rather the concreteness it’s impossible to approach to GustoForte: sandpapered combo from every imperceptible wish to appear and to underline with inexistent ink-pencil the imaginary experimental Italian scene. Not for a typical shape of intellectual arrogance or for superiority starving from the envy. But only for a tenacious and corrosive tediousness to their self. GustoForte born in Rome in the 1984, develop its sonorous magma and then blend into the continuous beat of the peripheral roman nights. The dub, without echo, beats an ended time. The gloomy sound and silently shouting of the roman tradition dirty oneself with ground noises. Indistinct. Perennial. Limping ditties shake furious inside an old echo’s room. Take again the steady dancing of the not create thinking of age ’70: Telaio Magnetico, I Fiori di Mario Schifano, Aktuala, Caludio Rocchi, Osage Tribe, Juri Camisasca, Albergo Intergalattico Spaziale, N.A.D.M.A, Lino “Capra” Vaccina, Pierrot Lunaire, Opus Avantra. And then The Carmelo Bene of wet of cockroach and stew cellars, the Cesare Canevari, Alberto cavallone, Gualtiero Jacopetti, Nico D’Alessandria, alberto Grifi, Ugo Nespolo, Piero Bargellini and Mario Schifano’s Cinema. The Electronic musico f Egisto Macchi whisk.. with the anti-art saliva of Cramps and BlaBla records. GustoForte whisks the crazy metaphor of the American no-wave with the violent throb of roman “barcaroli”. Sonorous sandpaper flood of organic humours. to describe the sound and the Sounds that regurgitate in GustoForte it’s enough to say the word MalaGrotta: the rubbish dump that embraces Rome from 40 years, 240 hectares of mud and refuses. GustoForte is a rubbish heap of the memory that shapes the useless mud of nationals vanguards to more new shapes full of faith popular mire. It’s all. Only one record published in the spring of’ 1985 in 200 copies, sheet cover to keep the sonorous clue into the tracks. Only two live performances. About the second work on published only the lacquers. Then on lose the tracks. At least those visible. Because those underground was frequented so much. Gustoforte rejects the idea of the Independent scenes, too much belonging to an “critical” idea of post-fascist juvenile movement. It prefers and likes better the word “autonomous”: free of prefixed schemes, of distributive shape rhetoric and boogy. GustoForte prints records but only limited copies, audios cases forced from serigraphies and blueprints , prints blurred and drew foto-romances. For a not selected public, casual, autonomous from conditioned choices: it leaves copies in stations, squares and buses stops. Lisbon, Paris, Rome, Palermo, and Bucarest. For years GustoForte unsettles the not-public of art. In the aggregate 17 autonomous publications. Then the meet with “Plastica Marella” (editor in modern sense) who make her manifest about the autonomy opposed to the independence. Out of the schemes for contain all the schemes, the contradiction like fury of art, the obscene like way of liberation. GustoForte and Plastica Marella ((editor in modern sense) transform the incoherence in a artistic shape for ward market, sale of relics for art’s bigot. Or at least the awkward attempt to set in order in the GustoForte’s confused catalogue and then give it like food to all the starving. www.gustoforte.org

                    This is one of a number of songs I wrote for a radio station several years ago; the brief was for a high-brow arts program; I always wanted to write a song in 5/4, it’s hard to do without sounding like Dave Brubeck (guess you can’t improve on in the master).

                      Not sure why but M. C. Escher’s wonderful artwork came to mind when I was searching for the perfect imaginary to go with this composition Yes I know its yet another melodic instrumental, some nice chords and an easy going groove make this pure ear-candy - 10 points if you can spot the drum loop hiding in the back of the mix!
