7″ + book, Stampa Alternativa, 1988
You must have come across these – Italian books of dubious origin but unquestionable enthusiasm, usually coupling collected lyrics and an interview – in Italian and English – with a 7″ of live rarities and chat (later a CD along similar lines).
This one dedicated to San Francisco (and latterly Belgian) sophisticates Tuxedomoon is particularly pretty, with its embossed white-on-white cover, and the disc is worth a listen too. The a-side is a cover of a Nino Rota film theme, and the interview is a wide-ranging collage taking in all the key Tuxedomoon mavens and rocking’ Billy Burroughs too.
