This album is a celebration of the Art of Nick Drake, 40 years after his last album, Pink Moon. It's a celebration of the beautiful music scene turning around Pavia, its live club, Spaziomusica, and the community of Downtown Studios, too, and these are just a few bands: we've got lots and lots more

It's been recorded, mixed and mastered in only 21 days, capturing the lively performances of the bands with few additional production make-ups.

"Tow the Line" is Nick Drake's last song, lost and found after ages hidden in some studio's closet, where he sings to the muse his ultimate question: go commercial or not?..

One more thing: THIS RECORDING IS NOT LOUD!! Because we like the nineties and we like to use the volume wheel. So, if you want some power, just TURN IT UP.

[ITA] - Questa compilation è una celebrazione dell'Arte di Nick Drake, a 40 anni dal suo ultimo album, Pink Moon. E' anche una celebrazione della scena musicale che ruota intorno a Pavia, al suo club, Spaziomusica, e alla comunità dei Downtown Studios. E queste sono solo alcune band: ne abbiamo molte, molte di più…
"Tow the Line" è l'ultima canzone di Nick Drake, perduta e ritrovata dopo anni nascosta nell'armadio di qualche studio, dove canta alla musica la sua somma domanda: diventare commerciale o no?..

E' stato registrato, mixato e masterizzato in soli 21 giorni, siamo riusciti così a catturare lo spirito vero di ogni performance, con ben pochi abbellimenti in postproduzione.
Un'ultima cosa: QUESTO DISCO NON HA UN VOLUME POTENTISSIMO!! Perché ci piacciono gli anni '90 e perché ci piace usare la manopola del volume. Quindi, se vuoi più volume, ALZA!
