Over ten years since first embarking upon a musical pilgrimage to Manchester, Milo Scaglioni’s musical journey has been a varied one. You may recognise him as bass player in The Beep Seals and playing with fellow pop procrastinator Jim Noir, he later become a member of Italian psych band Jennifer Gentle who were signed to Sub Pop, currently plays with Roma based droners Sonic Jesus and also regularly backs one of Italy’s biggest musicians, Dellera. 

Listen to single 'October':

Having moved back home to Italy a few years ago, Milo started shaping his own music before enlisting some of the country's finest musicians; Roberto Dellera (Bass), PJ Harvey collaborator Enrico Gabrielli (Piano, Organ, Rhodes, Sax, Vocals), Lino Gitto (Drums, Percussion, Organ), Gianluca De Rubertis (Piano, Wurtlizer), and Simone Prudenzano (Drums) to recorded the album in southern Italy’s Lecce, in Edac Studio, situated on the banks of Lake Como, under the watchful ear of renowned producer Davide Lasala. Certainly beats Chorlton Waterpark for scenic value...

Over his time in Manchester, Milo became a good friend to aA and we kept in touch, with members of the aA crew making numerous trips to Italy to see how our old pal was getting on and his own music was developing. Including one particularly productive A&R meet in Venice with Softpriest and some suitably decadent night outs in Rome.

Whilst 'A Simple Present' simmers with the romance and splendour of the Italian cities he has called home in Milan and Rome, the latter is where Milo resides now, it still brims with a personal, village green mentality only fitting of his second home; “Manchester influenced my way of seeing things and consequently, my approach to music and song writing. There’s an honesty in Manchester, a keep your chin up ethos and poetry."

Sticking two fingers up at the recent Brexit decision, the album is fittingly a joint release with Crytmo Records a division of the Rome based Misty Lane Records.

and look out some very limited vinyl numbers in the country soon. 
Just got to get Milo to smuggle them over the border now..
