Magnetic System were a sort of supergroup founded in the second half of the ’70s, consisting of three of the greatest Italian composers, musicians, arrangers and producers: Vince Tempera, Franco Bixio and Fabio Frizzi. This wasn’t their only artistic collaboration, but under the name of Magnetic System only a 7-inch had been released in 1977, containing the two tracks “Godzilla” and “Escape”.

The first track “Godzilla” is very peculiar, taken from the soundtrack of a rare ’77 movie conceived and realized by director Luigi Cozzi, who was specialized in underground low-cost productions, mainly active in the science fiction field: starting from the 1954 “Gojira” movie, he completely re-edited it by adding new footage, slowing down some sequences and colouring its frames, transforming the original product into something fully acid and psychedelic, that perfectly fit the trio’s music, a space-krautrock lysergic trip exclusively made with keyboards and synthesizers. On the flip side, “Escape”, is a track that was included in the soundtrack of the 1977 films “Operazione Kappa: sparate a vista” (internationally distributed as “Day of Violence”) and “Ecco noi per esempio”: an exciting heavy-funk song with a pulsating bass and futuristic/cosmic synth soundscapes.
