"Picchio dal Pozzo can be considered as the definitive 'Canterbury' inspired band, coming from Italy's 1970s progressive rock scene. Their 1976 debut album shows an incredibly rich sound texture, made out of some peculiar musical ingredients. Oblique tunes and liquid harmonies, airy flutes, crispy horns, loads of electric piano, fuzz bass, drops of jazz, pop romanticism, waves of minimalism, and pataphysical vocals and lyrics. The whole album develops through a sequence of finely composed material and wide open sound choices. A deep journey through a multi layered soundscape with echoes of Hatfield and the North, Soft Machine, Robert Wyatt, Zappa. PDP's first work was originally released on Grog Records and subsequently reissued only in Japan. (Grog Records: an independent label, known for releasing the work of Italian underground pop groups of the 70s, such as Corte Dei Miracoli, Latte E Miele, and Celeste)."

Also available on LP.
