From FilthForge.
Finally new signs of life from the bizarre realms of Post Contemporary Corporation. This time, the joint forces of Musica Di Un Certo Livello and Misty Circles deliver a beautiful limited edition 12" in transparent blue vinyl, carved with new striking dictates of Zekkini's massive poetry. "Manzotin Mantra" is a new concept, the new challenge to the modern world: the idea behind this new Post Contemporary opus is "the privatization of language itself", making it in the process totally personal and unique, thus preventing anyone else from distorting or misrepresenting our message. The idea is nothing less but revolutionary, it has to be seen however how they intend to bring such an ambitious project into reality.The vinyl contains eight mantras, practically speaking eight versions of the same track remixed and reworked by eight different artists. Zekkini provides the speech, while the guest musicians, electro-manipulators and noise-makers create the music. The list features some remarkable names: Spiritual Front, Der Feuerkreiner and Malato, as well as Sandblasting, Obsil, and even electro-pop devotees Tourdeforce. The results are of different nature: Der Feuerkreiner and Malato surely achieve the best results, with their gloomy industrial and ritual soundscapes, but Sandblasting's rhythmic noise orgy is not less stimulating and enjoyable, not to talk about Obsil's eerie sonic alchemy or Tourdeforce's dancy interlude. Zekkini's lyrics are as crazy as ever, a real cut-up of both real and invented words in several languages, spoken with hieratic voice like he was in a state of deep mystical trance... the Manzotin Mantra in its purest form. Summing up, this vinyl release is a cool collector's item, and the music is enough different between each track to make the whole listening experience interesting and enjoyable. And the closing track, "Boatos", is a collection of Zekkini's slogans, sounding like a fake public declamation, so demented and brilliant that they have to be listened to be believed (for Italian listeners only, of course). Enough for the moment, while waiting for the second PCC full-length, of course. - Simon V.

Avete mai letto le sacre tavole del Paroliberismo sonico? O danzato ai ritmi della poesia ginnica della Post Contemporary Corporation dell' ineffabile Valerio Zekkini? Nooo! In tal caso si consiglia di rimediare con "Manzotin Mantra", l' ultimo dettato sonico in mimetica d' assalto ( e vinile blu ) che l' esteta armato della PCC infila in mezzo ad altre due pubblicazioni recenti: il libro di aforismi, haiku, motti e proclami "Patriottismo Psichedelico" ed il cd "Eroismo e Pagliaccismo", raccolta di rarit' e tracce inedite composte tra il 1997 ed il 2008. Ma adesso รจ su "Mantozin Mantra" che dobbiamo concentrare la nostra attenzione, pronti a cedere, tra uno sgomento e l' altro, alle danze elettroniche dei 7 sintetisti-manipolatori chiamati da Zekkini per musicare le sue declamazioni "metalinguistiche". Il tour de force parte al rombo profondo del TourDeForce Remixper proseguire sulle alte pressure del SANdBLASTING Remix, sfrecciando come una sirena di sincoopi ipertronichesulla pista d' acciaio-parole forgiata dal fuocodel verbo zekkiniano. L' Obsil Remix adotta la strategia del reverse innervando occulti fonemi subliminali, mentre il Der Feuerkreiner Remix ordisce spirali mantriche adagiate su buchi neridi semantica pura. La disco post--moderniana del Sandro Codazzi Remix non contrasta col tiro hypno-beat del Malato Remix, che a sua volta prepara il terreno ai scintillanti ritmi di cristallo dello Spiritual Front Remix. Chiosa il tutto "Boatos", un estratto dell' adunata postcontemporanea del 15/07/2007, ove s' arringano fantomatiche piazze. - Aldo Chimenti ( 8/10 )
