INTOLERANCE demo from 1985 (old school italian new wave)

Intolerance - Intolerance (1985, Italy, New Wave, Industrial, Electro, Synth-pop, Minimal)

I'm always so glad to find online such wonderful 80's groups I never heard about!
Here are some infos I found about them on "The Armagideon Times" Youtube channel:

The Intolerance born in September 1983 in Cuneo, a small town in the montains near Torino, by an idea of Luca Musso, Marco Marongiu and Paolo Chiotasso, all musicians orbiting around the various high school of music expecially SMET (electronic music studio in Torino) founded by Enore Zaffiri. At the vocals was Raffaella Risso. Their cultural landmarks and music influences were Suicide, DAF, Throbbing Gristle, German electronic music scene of the years '60s/'70s, composers as Luciano Berio/Stockhausen and the new international Post-Punk/New Wave scene of the period. The instrumentation used in the two first years of activity of the band (which is used in this album ) was Roland JX-3P, Roland Juno-106, Roland Sh-101 and Drumatrix TR-606. Between the end of 1983 and 1984 the band played in various venues and squat (as the historic Victor Charlie, in Pisa). In this period the band was menaged by Ivan Rosso and Leonardo Borghese, both 'semi-official' members of the band. The last one, Leonardo Borghese, was the "deus ex machina", founder of the independent label "Suoni dal Profondo Nord" (Notes from the Deep North), who produced the first Intolerance demo and other bands of the same town/area. Intolerance also appeared in split tape compilation enclosed on 'Amen' fanzine and "VM" compilation LP. At the end of the '80s the band split up.

Interesting, though I have to confess that I am into classical music. My father, who was from Sicily, was a classical singer. And as a child I was forced to listen all day around the house to his vocal opera antics . Sort of drove me up the wall. My mother, who was from Naples, taught me the virtue of patience. So the operetta I hated as a child I now love as an adult

1. It is a robot with an IQ.

This is true of all the different types of robot I know of and how much I love their work! I have been to many robot shows and even the most hardcore robot fans. I think they're a great addition and I think it would be a good idea to give a robot a chance to get more out of it and to learn about the robots in a new and interesting way, and I would love for you to share some of their stories with us on Facebook and Youtube!

I would love to hear from any of you who want to help out in making these amazing robots, please let us know in the comments below!
