about

"Messier Objects" is the first album composed, recorded and released by Ernesto Tomasini, Fabrizio Modonese Palumbo, Paul Beauchamp and Evor Ameisie under the band moniker Almagest!, named after Ptolemy's 2nd-Century mathematical and astronomical treatise on the apparent motions of the stars and planetary paths but with an added final exclamation mark (just like Neu! and John Foxx's Ultravox!)

Baby Dee: “...traditional dances from a place that does not exist”
