For more than three decades, the obscure Italian band Sensations’ Fix has been pleasing audiences with its energetic brand of progressive electronic rock. Success lies in the group’s original mix of genres, blending shrill electric chords with a psychedelic rhythm in a unique sound entirely its own. Not only does SF stand the test of time, it still comes off as futuristic.

Thursday 8/28. $10, 8pm. Main Street Annex, 219 Water St. 817-2400.

    I usually argue against analog purists but man you can hear the tape as another wonderful mix element on this (twice if you count the Echoplex ribbon). This is damn cool.

    it’s perhaps worth noting that “Sensation’s Fix” was basically an umbrella term for a shifting cast of collaborators, led at various times by the only consistent and longstanding member, Franco Falsini — if that name sounds familiar, it’s because local music promoter Jeyon Falsini is his son. Franco was pretty active in the 70’s — my favorite is his 1975 solo album “Cold Nose” (released under his own name, now back in print thanks to the excellent Spectrum Spools label) — and, after years of relative obscurity, he’s recently been re-“discovered” by the current crop of young analog-synth/retro-psych nerds. Jeyon’s been talking for a while about trying to get his dad to play some US shows now that there’s buzz around his work again; glad to see it’s finally happening!

    so, uh, how was the gig?
