Limited edition 7″

Four Flies’ 45s series continues to pay tribute to the golden age of Italian film music, this time with the first 7-inch release ever of two super-groovy themes from Gianni Marchetti’s soundrack to Milano: il clan dei calabresi (known in English as The Last Desperate Hours), a 1974 poliziottesco film directed by Giorgio Stegani.

“M2”, on side A, is a re-versioning of a timeless classic – Quincy Jones’ “Ironside” theme – where the punch of funk comes to the fore and is fused with the acid sound of early 70s Italian prog rock. This combination of jazz-funk and prog rock is found also in “M3”, on side B, which weaves a tapestry of powerful horns and gently weeping guitarover a driving, funk-blues bass line.

A must-have for lovers of rare grooves and poliziottesco films! But don’t wait around, it’s a limited edition!
