Product Description

Le Stelle di Mario Schifano

Dedicato A...


Psychedelic  Music from Italy




"Mario Schifano was for "Le Stelle" ("The Stars") what was Andy Warhol for The Velvet Underground.
This pop-art sculptor and painter formed the group in 1967 and recorded this masterpiece in Rome.
The first side, the 18 minute surreal - psychedelic  jam "Last Words of Brandimarte"  is  one of the classic tracks."


Rarely you can find, in the panorama of the Italian 60’s, a group so innovative and so diverse. “Le Stelle” (“The Stars”), released in 1967, was the work of Mario Schifano, the amazing painter and sculptor of Italian Pop who brought together four young, unknown musicians and vocalist Francesca Camerana on some tracks. Originally released on the tiny BDS label, only 500 copies were initally pressed (some of which on red vinyl). The cover art, by Schifano, is a sublime example of pop art, rich in stars (appropriate for the group’s name). Side one features “Le Ultime Parole Di Brandimarte” (“The Last Words Of Brandimarte”) with guest musician Peter Hartman. This piece represents the most avant-garde moments of the work, with its surreal atmosphere, more in line with a contemporary musical performance than psychedelic rock. Side two contains five tracks that offer a view of the group’s wonderful abilities in a largely pop context.

Rarely can you find, in the yet fertile ground of the Italian 60's, a group so innovative and so diverse from all of the other ones from that era.

The concept of "Le Stelle" ("The Stars") came about in 1967, and was the work of Mario Schifano, the amazingly talented Italian Pop painter and sculptor, who collected alongside himself four young, unknown musicians. For the recording sessions "Dedicated A...". the body of the group was augmented, with the inclusion of vocalist Francesca Camerana and a few more musicians.

The final results of this session were published by B.D.S., a small label distributed by CGD, at the end of 1967,

. The cover art, created by Schifano, is a sublime example of pop art. LE STELLE DI MARIO SCHIFANO "Dedicato a ¿.. - LP


A fan of New York’s pop culture and beat music, Schifano decided to form a rock group after a visit to Swinging London during the era of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Rather along the lines of Andy Warhol, who had discovered and produced the Velvet Underground, Le stelle di Mario Schifano (Mario Schifano’s Stars) were born, and came out with their Dedicato a… album in 1967. The music was dissolute and discordant, characterised by a progressive rock that was totally outside the experience of the Italian music scene. The “Star” cover designed by Schifano himself is dense with references and aspirations: the stars on the US flag painted by Jasper John in his Flag cycle; the stars on the newly-inaugurated Hollywood Walk of Fame and those in the artist’s own personal star system, to whom the album is dedicated.
