about

The last fated project of the now legendary IIF (Italiano Independente Films) was the remake of the famous 70s TV show with the similar name. Although more of a homage to the original – ‘Battlestar Transreplica’ – as it became known through internet sci-fi communities, added much needed flair, nudity and lashings of steamy violence to the mix. Centred around Nexus 6-esque clones, this time designed purely for sexual recreation, an intergalactic cult whose favourite sport was hunting humans and the hosting of the Space Olympics, the camp robots and special effects that would make the producers of Blake’s 7 blush, coupled with often nonsensical plot twists did little to stop the success of the series. But, what really stood out was the queen of the sex clones played to perfection by Italian scream queen, Ania Pieroni, taking time off from her successful TV station GBR. This cursed masterwork was broadcast in its entirety yet the first three episodes fell to the most unlikely and bizarre circumstances involving lightening cutting out most of the transmission, an exploding espresso pot and an escaped murder of crows being kept for Dario Argento’s seminal film ‘Opera,’ invading the control booth. Eventually audiences would simply tune out and the final three episodes received the lowest viewing figures in Italian TV history. Nevertheless, with the birth of DVD ‘Battlestar Transreplica’ was set to find a new audience and be seen by many for the first time. Unfortunately, due to a legal wrangle between the show’s stars and the company’s imprisoned CEOs, the DVDs could not legally be sold until an agreement had been met, but before the discussions could reach some kind of conclusion both producers were killed during a prison break gone awry. Antoni Maiovvi’s soundtrack is once again the last piece available in its entirety remastered from the original tape source for your listening pleasure.

(promo photo - ©tanja drenhaus) Antoni Maiovvi’s career began with a quite frankly amazing lie. In reality Maiovvi is not an original Italo producer from the 1980s come back to reclaim his crown, but a project started at the end of 2006 by composer Anton Maiof to explore a world made of synth pop, hi-nrg and horror soundtracks. ... more
