Deniz Tek Group
Title: Italian Tour EP '96 - Company: Generic (Aust) - Cat No: (dtg01)
Format: cdep - Released: June 1996 - Status: Currently in print
Specially manufactured by Citadel as a generic release to celebrate the band's July 1996 Italian tour, this EP was mainly sold at shows during the tour. The distribution otherwise was limited to Australia with a small number sold elsewhere. Now a collector's item, the remaining copies can only be purchased by mail-order.
This EP contains three tracks from Le Bonne Route although the version of VMO is an alternative mix by Dave Weyer, independent of Deniz and Kent, which presages the sounds found on the later album Equinox. The other tracks are Le Bonne Route out-takes and the live demo.
The Italian tour dates listed on the inside of the cover are totally wrong. The Italian promoter, a guy called Paulo, completely screwed up, making the tour somewhat of a debacle. The band persevered despite this. The support band was A10. Their bass player, Romano Pasquini, co-wrote Without A Face and plays in Yage, Kent's Italian outfit.
The cover photo of Deniz is at the group's Sydney Big Day Out appearance in Jan 1995.
