In 1982, at the tender age of 14, Graziano G. Ravizza and Davide Gatti recorded “ I'm A Vocoder”. The song, signed as Gay Cat Park, was released by Il Discotto and soon became an underground Italo disco hit. However, we haven’t heard from the band since (which has only fed the song's cult status). Now, 30 years after that single, the couple is releasing their first album, entitled "Synthetic Woman".
Besides their big hit, the LP holds seven tracks, home recorded between 1982 and 1984, which at the time were rejected for release because they weren't “commercial enough”, and remained shelved until Medical Records showed interest in restoring and sharing them with the world. So, with "Synthetic Woman" we can finally get a full picture of Gay Cat Park's musical vision. A vision where influences from Kraftwerk mix with Vince Clarke, Tomita, and Depeche Mode, channelled into songs that oscillate between iconoclast synth-pop and sparkling Italo disco. The album is slated for release on 15th June, in a limited edition of 650 hand-number vinyl LPs.
