Parachute is proud and excited to release art rock unit Starfuckers’ legendary “Sinistri” LP, remastered and pressed on vinyl for the very first time since its original version in 1994 on Underground Records.
Formed in 1987, Starfuckers is an Italian avant-garde band primarily from the 1990s, considered a notable part of the experimental rock scene and one of the more "out there" acts during their active tenure. Originally inspired by ‘80s post-Stooges noise and New York City No Wave, Starfuckers eventually carved their path to their own distinctive sound by following in the footsteps of Xenakis, John Cage, Maderna and Stockhausen — all without ever abandoning their own attitude and raw personality.
An incredibly important record for us here at the label, “Sinistri” feels just as fresh in 2016 as it did in 1994.
