Mannequin Records present Atelier du Mal's Noblesse Oblige, originally self-released on cassette in 1984. A brilliant comet of the Italian new wave scene, Atelier du Mal were formed in Florence in 1983 by Lapo Pistelli (synths, electronic drums), Iacopo Ficai Veltroni (bass, synth), and Ignazio Matteini (drum programming, percussions). Recorded in 1984, Noblesse Oblige was the first, and subsequently the only, demo tape by the group, using classic gear like Korg Ms-20, Roland Tr-606, Roland Tr-808, Roland Juno 60, and Roland TB-303. For fans of John Foxx, Tuxedomoon, Ultravox, Oppenheimer Analysis, Central Unit. Mastered by Rude 66; Graphic design by Alessandro Adriani. Edition of 400.
