Nadja were born in the eighties in Sarzana (Liguria).
Towards the end of '82 the two founding members Fabio Giannini (guitar) and Osvaldo Lanata (vocals) were joined by Michele Militello on bass and Roberto Andreotti on drums.
The first tape -- La Joie - was recorded in the new AR Studios in San Terenzo. Clearly influenced by the British goth movement Nadja soon introduced more than a reference to the French culture and the Mediterranean music.
The surrealist matrix was evident in the lyrics, even if the socio-political influence is still there. At the turn of '85, the second tape -- Eros -- was out. While strictly anchored to the dark/post punk area, folk elements and dilated structures definitely appeared. Following a reissue of La Joie (Onde Italiane, 2017) and Act IV (Sunflowers Records), it seems time for Eros, the sought after second tape, to be reissued here on vinyl for the first time.
