Biography

Like Planetarium, Blue Phantom or Fourth Sensation this was an italian group whose members have remained unknown and that has often been wrongly considered english, their first album having been issued in many european countries.
According to an interview with drummer Paolo Siani on the italian Musikbox magazine, the musicians playing on this band’s two albums were in fact Nuova Idea , Radio Records (the label on which the first album and singles appeared) being distributed by their label Ariston at the time, but surely the mastermind behind the Underground Set name was composer Gian Piero Reverberi, that also produced many albums by Le Orme.

Mainly instrumental, with just some choral vocal parts, the albums are typical of a late 60’s organ-led psychy pop sound and some tracks were used as TV film themes.
It’s interesting to notice that the group has been mentioned as english in Vernon Joynson’s Tapestry of Delight book, and all their tracks were by Reverberi (partly under the nickname of Ninety, like on the first album by another mystery band, The Psycheground Group).

    2 ) Altro mistero , altra perla dei tardi anni '60 . Disco trumentale , simile a quello dei Blue Phantom . La musica di questo gruppo Italiano , " fino a poco tempo fa , molti critici famosi credevano che fossero inglesi " è influenzata dall' acid-jazz e dalla psychedelia , con l' organo hammond in evidenza . Bello . Bello . ---- om hari om .........
