Cathode Mamma Polydor Press Release (1980)*
Krisma - strange blonde fusion of Italo/Swiss origin (purely
genetically speaking) left the test-tube three years ago...

...since then they have spread a blanket of
sartorial anarchy, hair-dye horror and rock innovation from Rome to Hamburg,
Hamburg to Paris, and finally from Paris.to London.
Their chemical origin has all the better fitted them to shake off the
restrictions of Italian musical romanticism.
Their first album,
Restaurant" was made in London with the musical collaboration of Vangelis, and
indeed recorded in his studios in London.
Sexy rock with more than vestigial electronic overtones.
On the Continent their single hit was "Lola" - New Wave
sensuality with electronic shock.
The next album "Hibernation": emotions, love
and life in frozen suspension, controlled at a
timeless distance by equally frozen deities - whence the single "Gott, Gott Elektron".
Krisma: Christina Moser and Maurizio Arcieri: now live and love
in London. They
have just finished recording their third album - an overwhelmingly electronic opus
which restores romanticism to its right place - in the bowels of the computer.
How to love machines and still come to terms with life
- a an electronic voyage of
re-invigoration bounced from the opposing lyrical electrode of
Berlin/Venice/Tirana and London.
The album - "Cathode
Mamma" a Polydor 2448 110
The single "Many Kisses / Rien ne va plus" Polydor 2060 225
in Italy and the UK.
The album was produced at Trident Studios London by Jack Lancaster and
Arcieri. The music is written by Maurizio Arcieri (with the exception of
"White Knife" which is written by Christine Moser) and the lyrics by
Sibley. The synthetizers were programmed by Hans Zimmer of
whose electronic virtuosity will accompany Krisma on stage and on television
when he regularly appears as the third "live" member of the group.
