Banco del Mutuo Soccorso (English: Bank of Mutual Relief) is an Italian rock band. A popular progressive rock band in the 1970s, they continued making music in the 1980s and 1990s. Recently, they were still active, playing live in 2001 and 2008 at NEARfest. Their charismatic frontman, Francesco Di Giacomo, died in 2014.
Banco del Mutuo Soccorso was first formed in the 1970’s. The band released their first album in 1972 entitled,Banco del Mutuo Soccorso. Later in 1972, the band released their second record entitled Darwin!. It was a brilliant concept album about the evolution of life on Earth. We open our top 10 Banco del Mutuo Soccorso songs list with the entire suite Il Giardino Del Mago, that filled the second side of the band’s debut album in 1972. One listen to this and you will be completely hooked on this amazing band. The opening track from the band’s second album released in 1972 entitled Darwin! 8 -Non mi rompete. Niente, was released on the band’s ninth album entitled Canto di primavera. The album was released in 1979. The killer track song SENZA RIGUARDO was the opening track on the band’s 1980 album Urgentissimo.
This is THE Banco album, and as far as I'm concerned, THE Italian symphonic album. Of all of the forgettable and/or poorly produced albums from Italy in the 70s, Banco's Io Sono Nato Libero stands out as both a well written and a pretty well produced album. It has all of the good stuff they showed us with their previous two albums, but they really kick it up a notch here. Every piece is memorable. Acoustic guitar 13 minutes in. A collage of sounds 14 minutes in to the end. "Non Mi Rompete" is a beautiful 5 minute track of acoustic guitar and gentle vocals. Vocal melodies as the tempo picks up 1 1/2 minutes in.
Banco del Mutuo Soccorso is an Italian rock band. musica: V. Nocenzi, G. Nocenzi, testo: F. Di Giacomo, V. Nocenzi) Niente, ma non voglio pi? darti canzoni n? vecchie lune disegnate apposta io voglio averti davvero. Lascia che il tuo amore non sia una pietra, schegge di pietra che non vanno insieme. Fa che sia un amore di labbra che bevono, che mangiano, affamate, vicine, niente, ma un amore di labbra. Il tempo d'inventarti ? cos? lontano ma il tempo di amarti pu? essere vicino fa che sia un amore di labbra che parlano e respirano, affamate e vicine insieme una volta davvero. Niente, ma un amore di labbra.
