Heroin In Tahiti is a duo from Rome, Italy hailing from the Roma Est scene, a sort of local community based in the crumbling and deteriorated neighborhoods which were already eternalized by Pasolini and Neorealist Cinema (think of Pasolini, De Sica, Visconti, etc.) The duo plays a variety of cheap guitars, analog synths, drum machines, and pedals, achieving a dirtiness which is tragically lo-fi and out-of-time at the same time: a “Spaghetti Wasteland”, as they call it. In 2012 they released on Boring Machines their debut album Death Surf, a title which spoke for the music played on the record. The label said of the album: “Think of drinking a frozen daiquiri on a solitary beach while watching a poorly tuned TV broadcasting loops of If You Meet Sartana Pray for Your Death (1968), while Mururoa tests are happening at the horizon.” When mentioning Italian occult psychedelia, Heroin In Tahiti seems the best choice to sum up the sound and the references that stay at the core of this all-Italian scene. With albums like the mammoth double LP Sun And Violence (2015), the minimalist Canicola (2014) and the monolithic Remoria (GRA 001LP, 2017), Heroin In Tahiti became a cult band for their particular signature. Casilina Tapes 2010-2017 is the latest (and probably last) output from the cult Italian duo. It’s a collection of unreleased tracks recorded in their basement studio in Rome in the last seven years while building up their thematic albums. The label listened to the single tracks at once and they found out there’s a coherence between them even if they have been created in different periods. Actually, they show a coherence that only Heroin In Tahiti, with their kaleidoscopic vision of how Italy secretly sounds, can properly conjure up. Boring Machines calls it “total music”. You may find elements which reminds of long lost Morriconian soundtracks for cheap westerns or giallos, library music to accompany documentaries on Superstudio radical architecture, urban tribalism, beat poetry festivals on the seashore, and house music. Recorded in Rome, 2010-2017. Artwork by Francesco de Figueiredo. Screen printed covers by Legno, Milano…..~

Heroin in Tahiti had an unmistakable style at the beginning of their career, which was wonderfully suited as a trademark, an ultra-slow (and thus ultra-cool) doomversion of a Suf music reminiscent of Link Wray, comparable to what various Darkjazers did with the legacy of Miles Davis and others had done. However, it has not stayed that way - fortunately, because styles with too original recognition value quickly become the cliché of their own and, in the worst case, find vile imitators. Instead, knewThe two Romans to expand their trademark with different stylistic elements: Ritual and exotic, folk quotes and restrained noise, motifs from old Italian genre films and some more entry into the repertoire of the duo, behind whose fateful doom heavy one always meant to make out a mischievous grin - who one Song called “Ex-Giants on Dope” does not believe in Providence. Moreover, most heroin in Tahiti albums were conceptually aligned, giving them their individual character not only about style but also about content. 

The latter brought with it that in the numerous spontaneous sessions again and again material was created that did not fit into any of the albums concepts. What had accumulated there in the last ten years and waiting for lonely tapes for better times, has just been made available on this LP. The title refers to the existing since ancient Via Casilina, which leads from the center of Rome to the southeast, and at the top, still in the area of ​​the city center of Rome, the two have their domicile. They occasionally met her at the neighboring DalVerme Club, one of the legendary gentrification victims of the Eternal City. 

On these songs, which are roughly arranged chronologically, the range of their “Spaghetti Nightmares” is much better than on their albums. Many of the pieces, despite their so-called artificial character, reach deep into the rock'n'roll box and seem to have fallen out of a budget-less road movie that cuts across dry, Mediterranean land, and because the scenery is so dark, it only becomes immemorial in time, in an aha moment aware that the whole thing is not in Arizona or New Mexico, but in a remote province of southern Italy, and that no artist in the black series, but a neorealist leads the camera shaky. “Arco Ione” is such a piece, with its wistful guitar playing and the simple, hypnotic tact this mixture of melancholy and daring, for which one loves heroin in Tahiti, as represented in a nutshell. “Bad Auspicia” leads even further into a surfrock Desertfolk region, as stuck-up, cutting guitar figures and drunken ambiguities in the pace make it clear that you are in a rather questionable reality. 

If these tracks give the stylistically even more homogenous early phase, others testify to the band’s later avant-garde flirtations, such as the dizzying catchy tune “Veltha in C23”, which suggests an interest in German herb electronics, the monumental synth number “Steve Tamburo is not Dead ”, or the Steve Reich-like high-speed whirlwind of" Holy GRA Reversed “, whose rhythm becomes more and more a rushing maelstrom and ends up in the nebulous noise. Also included in this (of course only vaguely valid) category is "Larentalia”, which cobbles together delimited drums and reminiscences of film music of better times into an anarchic maze. 

Other numbers give room to the exotic interests of the Romans - in the form of pretty, oriental-like melodies like in “A Tergo Lupi”, using Asian double-blade instruments, which come together in “Lago Finto” with Baroque computer sounds, and not least in “Zziggurat Tempesta "Which somehow brings together all the typical heroin intricacies in Tahiti flair: multi-faceted puffing and droning surfaces, ritual hand drums that would have made good on the last longplayer” Remoria “, which revived an anti-Rom founded by Brother Remulus to occult life ; last but not least, film-ready twangs and other guitar ornaments that sound like surf, road and desert. 

The "Spaghetti Nightmares” of the two are a construct, and a great one. Throughout the twentieth century, Italians were good at reclaiming the cultural heritage of other areas and imposing their own stamp on it, a phenomenon in which one does not always have to resort to the often-cited Western. Heroin in Tahiti act like a big exclamation point behind it. So if you do not have an aversion to Lofi and a heart for original Spierereien, this compilation is recommended as an entry-level drug - unfortunately, it comes along with the bluster that it could possibly be the last disc of the band. That would be a warfare to the fans, who have accumulated over the years well beyond the Italian area, but who knows what it’s all about……~ 
Hailing from Rome, cult duo Heroin in Tahiti fuse analogue synths, garage-y guitars and skittering drum machines to gloriously lo-fi effect. This collection of previously unreleased tracks covers material recorded in their studio from a 7-year period. Their unique psychedelic vision touches on everything from beat poetry, house music and Ennio Morricone soundtracks. …~
