Questa maledetta nazione (This cursed nation) is the 4th album by italian rock trio Spasmodicamente, consisting of myself and my friends Matteo Mancini and Giulio Catarinelli.
The theme of the album is Italy and all its contradictions, the nation where we all grew up and we still love so much. The purpose was to translate the critical lyrics into a stereotypical ironic image. Inside the booklet on the other hand, I used deformed pictures of politicians, shot through a television screen.
The album is downloadable for free through our official band web site or you can order a digipack copy of it by clicking here.
