Exiled US artist-as-critic-as-artist Georgio 'the Dove' Valentino follows up his sprawling, schizoid 2xLP/4xEP Mille Plateaux with a pithy 7" single, each side clocking in under 3:00. “Satyros Ironykos” was born as a long-distance songwriting experiment between Valentino and Scottish post-punk legend David McClymont (Orange Juice). It would ultimately spawn an impromptu studio super-group starring Mick Harvey (The Birthday Party, Crime & the City Solution, PJ Harvey), Dave Graney and Clare Moore (The Moodists, Coral Snakes) as well as Valentino’s longtime collaborator Patrizia F. The b-side also features Blaine L. Reininger (Tuxedomoon) and Barclau. The tracks were recorded by Harvey in Melbourne, Australia and mixed by Marc Hacquet at the Subsonic in Montpellier, France.
