The cover of ‘Summer on a solitary beach’ is the tribute paid by the Turin punk band La Trappola di Dalian, on the day of the first anniversary of Franco Battiato’s death. The song, one of the most famous of the Catania musician, published for the first time in 1981, as an excerpt from the album ‘La voce del padrone’, comes out today in a punk version among distorted guitars, a pressing rhythm and a scratchy vocal line with the production by Adriano Vecchio. Sofia Cazzato (vocals), Alessio Piedinovi (drums), Angelo Rizza (bass) and Lorenzo Borghetto (guitar), these are the members of the band that has just released their debut album ‘Oltre il click’. The piece is their personal tribute to one of the most important Italian musicians, even beyond the apparently distant musical genres. “Battiato was basically a revolutionary – comments the band – and what could be more revolutionary than punk? His entire discography influenced us all, and entire generations of colleagues belonging to other musical genres. And how can we forget his album? ‘The void’ of 2007, where he wanted the punk band Mab next to him “. For the video clip made by Sette Afk Media Team, the band chose a beach and a sea of that Mediterranean as the location, which ideally unites them to the master. The shooting ends with the words of Battiato himself, who in an interview dating back to the mid-80s explained his concept of love.
