Join us again for an amazing line up!
**Tamuna / Gypsy Hill / David Goo / Sacha Dieu / DJ Kobayashi and Rumpsteppers**
Tamuna is a band from Palermo, Sicily. The band was born 3 years ago and their first release “Ciuscia” won the national prize “ Edison Change The Music”.
Tamuna is formed by Riccardo Romano (Guitar bass, Charlie Di Vita (Lead guitar) Marco Raccuglia (voice) and Giovanni Parrinello (percussion).
After the first album “Sicily World Music”, Tamuna spread their style and vibe across Moscow, London, Georgia and most italian cities.
Between 2014 and 2015 Tamuna released their EP “15 minutes with Tamuna” and the album “Wood Rock”.
The band is currently touring, with many gigs already sold out, and recording the first single of the new album, expected March 2016.
Gypsy Hill play an intoxicating mix of Balkan brass, Mediterranean surf rock, ska & swing. Featuring guitars, horns, tuba, a scratch DJ and a mix of live and electronic beats, Gypsy Hill effortlessly mix the traditional with a uniquely modern sound.
Producers DJ Kobayashi and Herbert Newbert have taken the project from studio to stage, gradually growing the band and honing their high-energy live hows. Their burgeoning CV includes remixes for the likes of Balkan Beat Box and Al Jawala and a special feature on Ninja Tune’s acclaimed ‘Ninja Jamm’ app. On the latter appearing alongside electronic music royalty such as Coldcut, Mr Scruff, Bonobo and many more of the Ninja Tunes roster.
When David Goo was born, the angels wept, for they had nothing left to conquer.
This is the benefit of no education and leaving school too early, pursuing some kind of dream where people would actually buy songs with names like ‘The Drop In The Bathroom,’ and ‘Hairy Man’. David Goo is not sensitive. David Goo is not trying to tug on your heartstrings. David Goo wants your babies to headbang to the rhythm and grin like the fools they are.
Goo (or The Goo, or Gooster) started forming bands at the age when every dumb fucker forms a band, but unlike the other dumb fuckers who grew some smarts and quit, he carried on, like a truly demented dumb fucker. Boy does he regret it now.
There have been ups and downs, and there will be more ups and downs, hopefully with a few ups that will include some money so he can pay back all the relatives and girlfriends he’s in debt to.
Actually, that’s David Goo in a nutshell. A money crazed, delusional, imbecile.
‘And so the angels laughed, and spoke to the Lord and said upon him, ‘Give your chosen one a break, for thy torments have carried on long enough.’
And the Lord laughed with them. And laughed and laughed and laughed. And smote the dumb fucker down.’
