Michele M. "Squarcicatrici" appartiene a quella categoria di album che chiamo "album chiave": musiche che danno accesso a universi che sono separati fino al giorno prima solo per mancanza di fantasia. Album che mettono gli opposti in contatto, ridisegnando le mappe e ampiando gli itinerari. Jazz randagio, punk etnico e noise colto. Passione e grinta a quintali che su di me ha prodotto una pesante dipendenza della quale non ho nessuna voglia di liberarmi! Zen Crust!

Squarcicatrici is a jazz splattered afro-punk musical ensemble from Italy fearlessly lead by Jacopo Andreini (L'enfants Rouge, OVO, Rollerball). Squarcicatrici utilizes extreme dynamics and presents whispered paintbrush sketches and then sculpts rich brass sound with the fury of a sledgehammer. Interpreting his twelve new compositions of aggressive intensity, Jacopo Andreini has assembled an international line-up which includes Enrico Antonello (Pangolinorchestra), Erwan Naour (Les Hurlements d’Leo), Thollem McDonas, Samuele Venturin (Motociclica Tellacci) and a remix by Bosnian dub heroes Vuneny. Accompanying the cd is an original essay by Brazilian sociologue Chico Caminati titled "Preto são todas as cores, branco é ausência de cor!" written expecially for this album and it can be read also on Squarcicatrici is an explosion of worldwide musical stylings. Aggressive Afro-Punk rhythms blend with Bossa Nova guitar and screaming American Jazz Cats. I can hear Fela, Rollerball, Fanfare Ciocărlia, Tom Waits, Jobim, ZU, and tons of other influences that I can't identify. Featuring male and female vocalists in French and Italian. This disc is so, so good and I love every nuance of it. "Squarcicatrici" is produced worldwide through a network of independent labels; Frigorifero Prod., San Giuseppe Records, Burp Publications, Wallace Records, North Pole Records and Nillacat.
