Here's the liner notes written by rock'n'roll journalist Roberto Calabrò, who gave us a precious help in releasing this CD!


OUT OF TIME: PAISLEY UNDERGROUND "MADE IN ITALY"
It was 1985 when an LP called "Stories We Can Tell" was released on the "ghost label" Mail Records. On the cover there was a drawing of a table on which you could see a packet of Lucky Strike cigarettes, some matches, an ashtray full of cigarette butts, a couple of photographs, a pentagram, a notepad and a pencil, whereas a Rickenbacker bass guitar sits quietly in a corner. These are all essential tools to "tell stories," all heavily soaked in nostalgia for the past. A past that has the fragrance of the Sixties, and fires the imagination through dreams of bright sunsets on endless meadows.

At a glance, it could be easily mistaken for a record cover of a band from the so-called Paisley Underground, the musical movement that emerged from the West Coast underground scene in the same period. Instead, "Stories We Can Tell" was the debut album of Out Of Time, a young Italian group that came from the mists of Bra, in Piedmont, Northern Italy. It was the Italian journalist Claudio Sorge who had discovered the five piece set a few months earlier, releasing one of their songs ("Have You Seen The Light Tonight") on the now legendary compilation "Eighties Colours". "Stories We Can Tell", released some months later, was the continuation of that artistic adventure.

The grooves of the vinyl disc held eight songs, all of them seemingly drawn with pastel colours, acid shades and jingle jangle guitars describing nostalgic and evocative atmospheres. Among the band's inspirational muses in addition to their contemporary Paisley Underground's groups, there were giants like The Byrds and Love. Arthur Lee's band was honoured by Out Of Time in their next work: the beautiful cover of "A House Is Not A Motel" published on the seven-inch disc given as a freebie with the second issue of the Italian fanzine "Lost Trails".

All these tracks helped the band increase their popularity in the underground scene and also gave them an unexpected moment of fame with their participation in the RAI Television programme "L'Orecchiocchio." Despite this, the story of Out Of Time suddenly came to a halt in 1987 while a second LP was already in the pipeline.

Now, the release of "Stories We Can Tell & More" brings an important piece of the history of the band from Bra back to us, as well as an important part of the Italian neo-Sixties movement. It contains everything that Out Of Time put down on vinyl, and also an outtake ("Time") from the first album's recording sessions, four tracks recorded live in the studio of a radio station and three new songs ("Walkin' In A Spanish Land", "Untitled", "Untitled #2") that were meant to be published on the band's second LP.

It is therefore a huge, yet subtle pleasure today to be able to dive once more into the colours and "out of time" melodies of the quintet from Piedmont. The long wait for this reissue has only increased the pleasure of listening to it and sharing it with all of you who are now holding this tiny, precious CD in your hands.
