Carmody was an Italian synthpop / minimal synth band from Torino, Italy. The line-up consisted of Andrea Lesmo (synthesisers, tapes, bass, guitar) and Alberto Ramella (vocals) with the some help from Massimiliano Casacci (guitar - nowadays in Subsonica and running the Casasonica Studios) at the later stage of their existence. They recorded from 1981 to 1985 and issued three incredibly rare demo tapes. In 2009, a "Best Of" compilation CD titled "A Better Spider" was issued by German label Anna Logue Records. They were mates of Monuments and Chromagain, also following a similar musical path with predominant synthesisers and drum machines (Boss DR-55, Korg KPR-77, Roland TR-909) along with some sparse guitars here and there.
