Before his magnificent experiments with electronic music on Elektrictus, Andrea Centazzo was already an accomplished musician who had issued his recorded works on the PDU and RCA labels. His first release was Ictus, a free-form avantgarde jazz odyssey on which he already started to experiment with electronic generated sounds. Ictus was a band formed by Centazzo, Armando Battiston and Franco Feruglio, although back in the day the sleeve of the PDU release credited the work only to Centazzo (as if Ictus was simply the title of the album). This was a big mistake that Wah Wah has corrected in their reissue. A brave drummer/percussionist, on this album Centazzo also played flute, synths and sang. He is joined on select tracks by Franco Feruglio on bass and double bass and Armando Battiston on keyboards. It has been compared to Soft Machine's Third or Wolfgang Dauner's Et Cetera. It was originally released in 1974 and it gets its first ever vinyl reissue here, housed in a gatefold cover.
