    In 1980 Joe Vescovi,former keyboard's player of "The Trip"
    (a well known italian progressive rock band that recorded
    four LPs in the 70's,actually founded by Ritchie Blackmore
    in the middle of the 60's when he briefly moved to Italy...
    he soon went back to UK and the rest is history...but "The Trip"
    did not quit...)founded Knife Edge(the monicker was taken from
    the same song by E.L.P.),he recruited Fabrizio Cruciani on vocals
    (former Vanexa and later also with Crossbones) and a young Steve Tessarin
    on guitar(he was 17 at that time)and Fortunato Saccà on bass
    from Vanadium(they played in both bands at the same time)and later
    Gianfranco Segatto on second guitar and Maurizio Granata on drums;
    in 1982 KE recorded a five tracks demo(btw it's on Strappado's blog yet,anyway
    i included it here)and played a couple of live shows(actually the only live gigs
    they ever played)supporting Atomic Rooster(UK)in Torino and Milano before disbanding.

    Tessarin went on playing with Vanadium,Cruciani languished
    in the underground before disappearing from the metal scene
    (now he is the owner of the "Van Der Graaf" a rock live pub in his hometown
    Savona) while Vescovi and the rest of Knife Edge became the backing band
    of Umberto Tozzi(a well known italian popstar).

    Knife Edge were heavily influenced by Rainbow(Bonnet/Turner era),
    I uploaded the five demo tracks(but these tracks are on the web
    from years)and most important the live recording of the
    show played in Milano at Teatro Smeraldo,enjoy!!!


    Please note that i am not sure about the titles of some of
    the live tracks(not included in the demo tape and my english
    is not good enough...)any info
    is more than welcome.

    P.S. for completists and fanatics,Knife Edge appears under
    the fake monicker of Tarrot in the soundtrack of an italian movie,
    the comedy "Attila,Flagello di Dio(1982 - with Diego Abatantuono)
    playing an instrumental theme called "La Battaglia"(The Battle),
    while the rest of the sountrack is played by PFM(Premiata
    Forneria Marconi,one of the most important italian progressive bands),
    needlees to say that this LP is almost impossible to find.

    wow, incredible amount of history packed in here! I knew Blackmore spent a lot of time in Germany before going back to the UK to start up pre-Purple with Jon Lord, but I didn't know he spent time founding groups in Italy, or that he even lived in Italy. Also all the history with early Italian metal bands - great stuff!

    The Trip also appear in the most weird 1970 movie Terzo Canale - Avventura a Montecarlo (directed by Giulio Paradiso) along with New Trolls and welsh rock/popstar Mal of the Primitives. Cult movie.

    Ciao Marco mi fai sapere quali live o demo di metal italiano stai cercando oltre gli ALTER EGO? Purtroppo io ho solo le cassette e non ho l'apparecchiatura adatta per upload in cd o digitale. Fammi sapere: intanto ti auguro un buon anno di cuore
