Micheli and the Macchiaioli: Tomboj de niaj patroj


























The sophomore album by British alternative rock band Micheli and
the Macchiaioli
, Tomboj de niaj patroj, cemented their place in
the history of goth music. Not only were the compositions darker
than that of the band's debut album Macchie Macchie, the heroin
addiction of lead singer Connie Cooper resulted in a bizarre
slurring of the already incomprehensible Esperanto lyrics.

Adding to the morbid feel of the album's nine tracks was a cover
that featured a 19th century photograph of the catacombs of Paris.
The title of the album translates from Esperanto to "graves of our
fathers" (although this is disputed by some experts).

A digitally remastered version of Tomboj de niaj patroj was
released in 2009 on the Paupers U.K. label.
