INTELLIGENCE DEPT. were Davide Carlotti (synthesisers, sax, backing vocals), Susanna Zaghi (vocals, lyrics), Stefano Panzera (bass) and Gian Paolo Di Federico (synthesisers, drum machine programming) from Ferrara, Italy.
They only ever officially released three, yet totally amazing tracks on the “A White Chance” LP compilation in 1984. These tracks were “Sleeping City”, “Too Late to Love” and “Anger (Inside)” from their first 5-track demo cassette entitled “Sleeping City” (1984), which also included the track “Loneliness” already known from the “Danza Meccanica – Italian Synth Wave 1982-1987” LP/CD compilation.
In 1985 they recorded a second 4-track demo entitled “The Big Trouble” but not many people seem to have known about its existence. INTELLIGENCE DEPT.’s music is a unique blend of melancholic 80’s electropop with dark/new wave basses and (not annoying) saxophone action while being fronted by a powerful female vocalist, the lovely Susanna.
The digipak-CD version comes with a different artwork and an additional five bonus tracks including the cover version of “Sister Europe” (originally by The Psychedelic Furs), as well as four tracks recorded live at the Arena Nuovo in Ferrara in 1985.
