Consorzio Acqua Potabile biography by progarchives.com
A strange story for this band from near Novara that never released anything during the 70's and was discovered in the 90's by the small Kaliphonia label. A 1977 recorded live CD was released and the band reunited with four of the five original members for a nice brand new album. After this, other CD's have followed in 1998 and 2003.
The group was formed in Boffalora Ticino in 1971, and after some early concerts released a "prog-opera" called Gerbrand, that was represented in local theatres but never recorded. The musical direction was similar to BANCO DEL MUTUO SOCCORSO or PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI, in typical italian prog style with twin keyboards and long compositions.
The original band split in late 70's and some of the members were contacted for a CD release of an old live tape. Hence the reunion of the band around keyboardist Bollea and new recordings in the 90's until now.
Excellent Italian band highly influenced by the 70's Italian giants like PFM and BANCO, in typical Italian prog style with twin keyboards and long compositions. The music has some classical influences as well, with very intricate arrangements and interesting mood shifts. Vocals are in Italian, and the art work is amazing.
