Should you fancy tracking down an original seven-inch copy of Patrizia Saronni's sole single, 1984's double A-side "Perche Dovrei/E Poi", it would be wise to take out a bank loan. For those on more modest budgets, this reissue should be a must-buy. The release's calling card nestles on side B, where you'll find a previously unheard "Tape Version" of the chugging, alien and otherworldly "Perche Dovrei" (Italian for "Why should I", fact fans) that's arguably a more dancefloor-friendly proposition thanks to throbbing arpeggio-style bass and locked-in drums. A-side opener "E Poi", a slightly more cheery, synth-pop influenced affair that snugly fits the Italo-disco template, is also impressive.
