"Kabobo is a powerful duo with drums and synthesizers and saturated electric piano creating a sort of hectic synthesized experimental-noise-rock with distorted vocals and epic looped spirals of choirs. Going on their 3rd tour, this time venturing Europe."
In their own words: We’re both Italians /aɪtæljən/ but we’re writing this in English because we like to put ourselves in difficult situations. We invested A LOT of time, effort, pulled muscles, burned clutches.. not to mention money. Yes, bling bling. We recorded these songs in two different industrial units with leaking asbestos roofs, can you spot the difference? We strategically blended our tracks on a heavy analog desk in an abandoned office space we weren't supposed to use, turned down some freelance job opportunities and regretted being in 2098 where you will be able to clone yourself by simply owing a Tesco club card. But hold on a sec, all our money actually went into caffeine, replacing dropped-by-accident speakers drivers and under-rated 110V converters. Even if fuses weren’t our concern, after all this an' a’ that, we sent our tracks to the mastering knowitall people, some fine-tuning and we gave them to the guys who cut the round thing inside.
Luigi tapped his spidery fingers on synthesizers like the Pro One, cool! The bass sound is a secret whispered through the output of a Microkorgo - Italian for ‘Microkorg’ - it then goes inside some secret guitar pedals, and who knows what it does in there. Diodes? We like to prompt people to dance to our music and find out it’s awkward to. ALSO an electric piano Wurlitzer A200 is the heavy star, heavy y’know? We put everything through loud amps because it pleases our ears. David, the drummerista, plays lots of ghost notes you can’t hear in this recording. We adore piezo mic’s, we have three of them on drums, cymbals and butane cylinders. We both use our mouths as synthesisers and we pretend we’re not afraid of it. There fear's to nothing but it, fear self. \sorry
We decided to call this first release ‘Bulo!' because we thought the record was bulo - in Perugian dialect 'bulo' means 'REALLY COOL', 'ALMOST GOOD’ - hence, our craving for biscotti after practice.
As a band we are inspired by various music, from noise rock to progressive to industrial, David doesn’t agree. You can imagine two poor Italians in a very cold rehearsing room in the south-east of Glasgow trying to play riffs as fast as they can to stay as warm as possible, breathing asbestos falling from a roof built in the 1981 when Scotland was mainly Unionist trying to kill Catholics or something like that.
We truly hope you are going to enjoy this record, it took a while for us to conceive, perform and record it but we think that the result is pretty bulo and so are you.
Basically Kabobo are: Luigi Pasquini - Synths and vocals on amps - S.C. Pro One, Microkorg, Wurlitzer A200, Shure-Uknown-Model Microphone David Scorteccia - Drums, howling and piezo operator
Astral Tide: A new East Berlin based 4-piece with members from Denmark, Italy and England. The krautrock inspired introduction “From Under the Cloud” shared in December ’14 set the bar for what would follow; a swaying wall of brash intensity, energy and melody. Second track, the fizzier “Glimpses” was accompanied by their first official video in the summer, recently followed up by the dark and expansive “Haunt You”. A monster six track EP to be named “How Far, Are You Out There?” was recorded in August ‘15, taking their live sound into the studio and showing how swiftly the band has evolved into playing their own strain of conscious dream punk and brutal doomy shoegaze.
Jerakeen kommen aus Hamburg. Die 2016 gegründete Band spielt intrumentalen-Postrock der strukturierten Sorte á la Caspian oder Explosions in the Sky und klingt dabei doch sehr eigen. Trotz der Tatsache, dass die Band sehr jung ist, konnte JERAKEEN einige Erfolge erzielen. So vertonten sie eine Dokumentation des NDR und nahmen die dazugehörige Musik in Form ihrer Debüt EP 'SHORELINES' auf, die vom ‚Visions Magazine‘ als Demo des Monats ausgezeichnet wurde. Derweil arbeiten die Vier an ihrer ersten Platte.
In 2012 the Norwegian band Staer played their very first gig outside of Norway on the Stubnitz as a kick-off to their European tour with the mighty Child Abuse. Impressed as the crew of the Stubnitz was with Stear they were welcomed to play again again some time later. Sadly, the band broke up but some of the members regrouped and went on to tour other projects. This is one of the newest of these projects.
