Since 1995, the three founding members of Zu (Jacopo Battaglia, Luca
Mai and Massimo Pupillo), spent pretty much all their daytime in a
rehearsal room in Rome playing together and trying to fnd their own
unique voice
A deep link being their shared love for NoMeansNo and The Ruins, but bringing in
all kinds of different infuences and taste, the three didn't exclude any possibility:
hence you will hear electronic sequences, tape manipulations, acoustic cello
(played by their friend Francesco Chiari), and of course their frst iconoclastic
outbursts for sax, bass and drums. A lot more was already part of Zu's DNA,
including an instinctive ability to digest the myriads of infuences that permeated
them, without ever copying anything but transforming it all into their own
personal voice.
After about two years of intense rehearsals, this tape was the frst demo they
sent out. The cassette circulated around so much that Zu themselves no longer
found a copy, until recently when one mysteriously reappeared, intact and still
perfectly listenable: which, digitalised and mastered, becomes now, 25 years later,
The Lost Demo.
