Le Forbici di Manitù

nu-dada

Le Forbici di Manitù (a.k.a. The Scissors of Manitù) were formed in 1983 in the earthly galaxy of Reggio Emilia, Italy, and since then they have not moved from there. Eccentric, enterprising, intelligent, playful experimenters, they have produced an enormous number of sophisticated works of art in the curious form of sound works. Just to mention one, we choose the latest, a masterpiece of cosmic weird-folk titled “Incredible?” in the year of our Lord 2022. But pay no attention to time, they have the future at their feet… They are creating the pop (or dada-lounge?) of the year 3000! Beyond the legends that circulate about them, the Forbici/Scissors of Manitù can be defined as the Italian answer to Throbbing Gristle and the Residents. Or perhaps the Italian musical version of Gilbert & George.
