(CD/DD, Tourette 034)
The band : Almagest!
Baby Dee: “...traditional dances from a place that does not exist”

In 2007 the “artiste extraordinaire” Ernesto Tomasini and fellow Italian musician Fabrizio Modonese Palumbo [a.k.a. ( r ) and member of cult band Larsen and Blind Cave Salamander] released the album "Canes Venatici" for the US label Blossoming Noise sporting a picture by award winning photographer Giulia Caira on the front cover.
The following year, along with Evor Ameisie (founding member of NG/Northgate and Camerata Mediolanense) and Paul Beauchamp (of Blind Cave Salamander), they took a live version of the album to several European music/theatre/film festivals, historical locations and GLBT events.
At the end of 2010 the Italian experimental label Chew-Z released "The Hunting Dogs of Boötes the Herdsman”, a live and revised version of “Canes Venatici” featuring remixes by Khan, Andrew Liles and 9cento9.
"Messier Objects" is the first album composed, recorded and released by Ernesto Tomasini, Fabrizio Modonese Palumbo, Paul Beauchamp and Evor Ameisie under the band moniker Almagest!, named after Ptolemy's 2nd-Century mathematical and astronomical treatise on the apparent motions of the stars and planetary paths but with an added final exclamation mark (just like Neu!, John Foxx's Ultravox! and Robert Wise's "Star!").
"Messier Objects" (another reference to the misteries of cosmos) will be released by the Texas-based label Tourette Records in spring 2013 with an original cover artwork by London artist Dan Hillier.

Recordings from Masami Akita and Kiyoshi Mizutani.
Kiyoshi was a member of Merzbow in the 80’s and makes solo works since 1989, though main man Masami Akita has been the backbone of the band in history since 1979. These recordings are from the 87-89 era and some earliest recordings released in the year 1979.
The first abroad tour of MERZBOW was in 1988 in Russia featuring
Masami Akita and Kiyoshi Mizutani.
The 2nd one was in Europe (Holland, Germany and France) in 1989 and Kiyoshi also joined some shows. During this period they are very active in duo sessions at local studio and made lots of recordings. Some of them were used as raw materials for MERZBOW (solo works of Masami Akita) albums like 'S.C.U.M' (1989) but these original sessions had never been released until now. These recordings are also mirror works of his solo recordings like 'Ecobondage' (87), 'Enclosure' (88) or 'Storage' (88).
Both of us are playing same instruments as Metal Box with Piano Wire and Feedback audio mixer which I built for these recordings.
100 copies will have a bonus CD along with signed card from early times. Duo is not just another album from Merzbow but History put onto the table for your pleasure.
