The light at the end of the tunnel.

After more than 10 years of wondering where the hell that song comes from, thanks to Schizophrénie CISM, the mystery is now solved. I really took the long way to realize that I was calling "La Gata" from a band named "Generentola" (see my last post) is in fact a song called "Secondo Coro Delle Lavandaie" taken from the modern opera "La Gatta Cenerentola" (Cinderella's Cat) by Roberto De Simone of the NCCP. There are some differences between the 2 versions, apart from the bad sound quality of the bootleg, you can notice a growling and a weird jump cut that does not appear on the original version. Here's the cleaner and original version :

Thanks to WFMU, my source for the original MP3.

I'll be playing that track tonight at Zoobizarre for another Flaky Disco. Be sure to come down if you are in Montreal !

wow. cool. fou. je vais essayer de mourir en pensant que j'ai un petit peu de responsabilité dans cette découverte. un petit peu.

finalement, on peut dire qu'à montréal, on danse dans les clubs sur de la musique d'opéra. avant-garde.

wow! that original is way cleaner than the one on the strange pleasures comp. have you listenned to the other tracks from this opera? are they as good as this one?

it's weird that it's listed as "generentola" by la gata on strange pleasures. who was the mofo that made that comp anyway?

I've been looking for that song for 20 years. We used to dance to it in the late 80s. I think I even played it during a brief dj stint one summer. Couldn't get enough of that music. And now I found it. But weird too. Sometimes finding things is such a denouement.
