Qualcosa di perverso (c'ho di cui il paese ha bisogno)
by Sergio Messina (1995)
from the EP Technogod e RadioGladio nell'anno del maiale (Vox Pop VP32CDs)
bass: Roberta Vicinelli
recorded and mixed at Lost Legion Sonic Lab by Maurizio Liguori/Technogod/Sergio Messina

1995: Berlusconi was in power and many of us couldn't believe it (can we now? Personally even less than before). So I made this song, with a little help from my friends Technogod (a fantastic italian electro-industrial band no longer in the business) and my then girlfriend Roberta Vicinelli, excellent bass player of the also now defunct band Disciplinatha. It features samples from the italian Tv, framed with a phrase from the italian version of the film Videodrome. It was published in a mini Technogod/RadioGladio (my stage name then) album, entitled Technogod and RadioGladio in the year of the pig (1995 in the chinese horoscope). Despite being in 5/4s and not exactly fit for karaoke, this tune enjoyed quite a bit of radio play.

2009: Berlusconi is once again in power, and it's much worse now than in '95. So we could say that this song is still fresh, although I really wish it was a relic, a forgotten item from a long gone past...
