About

ARTISTS

BACKWARDS is the brand-new label born by an innate passion for unusual music and by an unrestrained desire to produce representative works from the most disparate, and apparently distant, music genres: from insane industrial to introspective drone-ambient, from feverish post-punk to devastating psychedelia, not excluding the warm intimacy of songwriting and a certain kind of contemporary experimental folk music.
Passion for Music goes hand in hand with that, equally connaturate, for the materiality of "phonographic supports". That's why Backwards will be devoted to publications of vinyl-only records, with limited editions that will include micro-editions in coloured vinyl, enriched with bonus stuff, such as additional 7", signed silk-screened (or meticulously hand-made) inserts, a lot of gadgets, and more... Bluntly, the complete eclecticism is Backwards' vocation, both in its issues and their presentation, so as to be the opposite to the creative aridity of issues in unlimited series, peculiar in the collapsing (or already collapsed?) world of "mainstream".
Backwards' next target is to be genetically different than twin sister-label "RICERCA SONORA", this one conceived to be more specialized in its releases, which will include "sound poetry", "musique concrète", "fluxus art" records, experimentation and avant-garde music in general. The meeting points between these two "creatures" will consist of the main aspects of editorial policies: unique choice for vinyl records and limited editions.
BACKWARDS WILL KICK YOUR EARS!
