After doing a quick google search on Mr. Pia I found this sight with a brief history of his work, check it out HERE
If you are familiar with these Usignolo records then you know how confusing and lengthy the catalog is. This one is part of the UST 100 series which starts in the 70's and rolls into the 80's, Some of the best Usignolos were recorded in this series like the Claudio Valle, Bembo, and the Giuliano Sogni one. As more of these records are becoming more aware to the public, Usignolo Fonit is becoming one of the most mysterious and sought after Italian label there is. While there are plenty of uninteresting records found throughout the catalog, the amount of heat pouring out of this label is quite staggering.

Mr. Basil has been killing it not only in music but also is a veteren (30 plus years) record collector of library, soundtrack, jazz, funk, psych, you name it and trust me he has one of the most insane collections I have ever seen in person. He's a bit of a local legend around these parts and also kindly lends DJ skills to Rendezvous where our paths crossed. He has plenty of other recordings which will get a deserved proper vinyl reissue soon, where he experiments with electro pop and jazz as well as an unreleased funk record from 1991 by the band SOL. It would be quite difficult to meet another dude as unique as John and it is quite obvious he puts his heart and soul into his music so please feel free to buy and support Baast music. You can buy the vinyl record from Ubiquity HERE or buy MP3 for 7.99 HERE You won't be sorry!
Also check these insane live youtube clips straight out of Long Beach yo!
And check out some grails I was salivating on when I took a stony journey to Basil land a while back,next stop the Marcellus Wallace Temple of Percussions, haha.

MP3 TRADES accepted as always.Chris Tillotson

While Side A is truly great with songs like Libano's, "Mach 48" and Filippi's "Sensazioni Primaverili", I feel side B is the best play through for me. "Jai Alai" by Haensch,Vanerden is one of the dopest jams I've heard in a while, perfect chords, beats and guitar tone. "Mandoleggiando" by Fabio Fabor has a killer psych guitar solo, gave me chills for sure! Luckily you can buy this digitally from Itunes or Amazon for only $5.99 as well as other Devega records like the very sought after Joy Unlimited record as the Devega label has made them available for purchase. I believe they call it Mach 48 on the digital release, so hope you can find it from google search. Check the soundclips ripped from my own collection. Chris
