"QUANDO GLI UOMINI ARMARONO LA CLAVA E... CON LE DONNE FECERO DIN-DON" (aka "WHEN WOMEN PLAYED DING-DONG") is a 1971 movie, directed by Bruno Corbucci, starring Antonio Sabàto, Nadia Cassini, Aldo Giuffré, Vittorio Caprioli, Elio Pandolfi, Valeria Fabrizi,Lucrezia Love, Renato Rossini (aka Howard Ross),Pia Giancaro, Gisela Hahn. In prehistoric times, two tribes - the Cavemen, who live on the mainland, and the Aquamanni, who live on stilts - are almost always fighting with each other. During a period of peace, the young Ari, head of the Cavemen, wins, in battle with the Acquamanni, one of their virgins, Listra, with whom, however, he barely has time to entertain himself since immediately a new one contention breaks out between the two tribes. Tired, as are the other women, of having to give up her man so often, Listra proclaims a sex strike, whereby the females of the two tribes abandon their respective villages, to retreat the ones on a mountain, the others to an islet in the middle of the river. The stunt was successful: Cavernicoli and Acquamanni reconciled, but once again the truce was short-lived. Ari and Listra then decide to leave together in search of a place where men do not go to war. Although the fake-prehistoric setting (the locations were in Lazio, in the areas of Tor Caldara - today Tor Caldara Regional Nature Reserve - and Tor San Lorenzo) and the title that refers to the two Pasquale Festa Campanile films set to music by Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicolai, this Corbucci film has nothing to do with those productions. Giancarlo Chiaramello (Bra, 7th december 1939) author of several scores for Cinema and television ("Crazy Joe", "Orlando furioso", "Marco Visconti", "La pietra di luna", "Un borghese piccolo piccolo", "Fico d'India", "Mani di fata") has composed a pleasant score based on the recurring main theme "Troglomen" performed in the Main Titles by the Turin-based progressive rock band Gli Aluminogeni which derives from the surname of the leader and singer, Patrizio Alluminio. This song was printed in stereo on the A side of the single (Fonit - SPF 31291). For the first time ever we relase all the background music score taken from the master in mono of the original session kept in the Beat Record archives and the song of the single in stereo with a total duration of almost 76 minutes (including takes not used in the film). Funny themes alternate with other rhythmic ones with distorted electric guitars with a rock - beat flavor for battle scenes, with a recurring love theme with a lounge flavor, with ethnic atmospheres. The chorus of Nora Orlandi performs in numerous tracks of this fun soundtrack that CFS and BEAT have absolutely wanted to rescure and preserve on CD.
