Aldo Nova – 2.0

1/10

In the early eighties Margaret Thatcher turned the U.K. upside down and got every Brittish rocker upset, as she closed coal mines that hadn’t been profitable for decades. On the other side of the Atlantic a B-actor baptised as Ronald Reagan moved into the White House. Things could not be worse many said.

In the very same era Aldo Nova’s LP “Subject” touched down on my turntable. It was pure magic. The sound was a compressed mess, but in a cool way. Songs like “Monkey On Your Back”, “Hold Back” and “Africa” grabbed me totally. The production was perfect for Aldo’s rather weak voice and strong melodies.

It is now 2018. We have Theresa May and Donald Trump in charge over the English-speaking part of the world. That is also the year when Aldo Nova comes up with the brilliant idea to re-record a few old tracks and put it on an album named “2.0”. Besides having the good judgement not to include any of the songs from “Subject” album, I have nothing more to say. He should have let sleeping dogs lie.

Mrs Thatcher’s classic phrase echoes in my head, “you should know when to go.”
