Silo Thinking

by Makhno



Makhno is the one-man project by Paolo Cantù, self-taught musician, who plays the guitar and whatever else he can get.
He began to play as a member of the experimental band Tasaday, after which he was among the founders of the rock band Afterhours from ’86 to ’90 and in ’92 in the seminal band Six Minute War Madness. In the same years he founded the band A Short Apnea, another piece of hystory of the italian undergound scene.
He continued to play with Tasaday in their ’00 renaissance and in various side projects as Four Gardens in One, End of Summer, Damo Suzuki’s Network and EAReNOW and finally with the duo project with Xabier Iriondo, Uncode Duello.
The Phonometak Series # 10 is his solo debut, following by the full lenght LP Silo Thinking under the moniker Makhno, played, recorded and mixed by himself.
The 12” vinyl LP is produced by the labels Wallace Records, Hysm?, Brigadisco and Neon Paralleli (Cantù’s own label). The only external contribution is from Federico Ciappini (Six Minute War Madness) singing in Custer.
