GIARDINI DI MIRO’
Rise and Fall of Academic Drifting
PERFORMING LIVE IN BERLIN
One of the most important albums in the history of Italian independent music is celebrating its fifteenth anniversary with a special tour, unique and unrepeatable, and for the first time “Rise and Fall of Academic Drifting” is reissued on double vinyl limited to 300 copies from 42 Records. The fate of the underground music is written that born discs and thought to be little more than a private matter in the life and career of the musicians who composed and recorded them end up representing a collective historical moment and mark deeply an era to become cult absolute.
“Rise and Fall of Academic Drifting”, the first album of the Giardini di Mirò, falls perfectly into this description.
Published for the first time in 2001 by the label Homesleep Bologna, at the dawn of what we commonly call Italian independent scene, he has achieved some very novel results and perhaps never replicated for an album almost entirely instrumental and characterized by the desire to look well beyond national borders.
So, after almost fifteen thousand copies sold in time, and hundreds of concerts in Italy and Europe behind, the Giardini di Mirò decided to propose it again to return to live in their entirety on stages some of the most important live Italian and European clubs.
