zinc - state of the nation 12" 1984

let's start the new year with a cover version from this italian electro/funk/disco duo from the 80s, comprised of gordon gordie and mauro malavasi, singer, songwriter and music producer. zinc, a short-lived outfit with one mini album released in the early eighties and several singles on jive records and sneak preview label. this record was also released under "sherwin" on speed records. not unusual at that time in europe as many records were under a different name/band depending on where and what label it was released on/at. one example is "tea for two" of tam tam records(italian/swiss) aka "gemo", another is "karisma" on trema records goes by two other names such as "europe" on shure records and "invisible" on int'l label canyon int'l., not to mention my long time friend "djlotku", a master in italo music is also know as "tuts", a second degree indie connoisseur and blogger and home to indiependent music review.
