Hello everybody,

we had a wonderful gig last friday at Mamamu Bar, an amazing club in Naples. It was like going back home after a long travel.

It was also the first time that we had our new album “Ghost Dance” into our hands and it’s a veeery cool CD.

You really should buy it! :)

Annunci

Hello everybody,

yesterday half of us were in Aversa, where a group of beautiful people called fabbricaria (check the link!) organized a concert with the legendary Geoff Farina from Karate. Maurizio had the pleasure and the honour to play with him in the backstage, as the beautiful (as usual) picture of our beloved friend and photographer Lucio Carbonelli  testifies.

here’s the picture

and here’s a video of  Farina’s performance, also shoot by Lucio

take care. The Mantra ATSMM

It’s a beautiful sunny day here in Naples, Italy is passing through a strange and confusing period after huge storms of all kinds, but maybe this could be the first of more beautiful sunny days, we hope.

During these days/weeks/months many things happened, many things are going to happen. Yesterday we played in a very nice club in Benevento after a 2-days studio session. Things are running fast, and that’s a good thing.

Our brand new album “Ghost Dance” is going to be released. Can’t wait.

Tonight we went to rough trade east, in BrickLane and it was super. Now relaxing and having a beer under some strange Super Mario characters that seem to have fun
crashing cars on the roof of a big building.

W O W !

This is definitely the clearest word to explain these three weeks in NYC.  Why? We try to explain.

● We met amazing people (and pets!) in one of the most incredible city of the world. 

● We were there with 4 shows booked and now we are back home with 6 done. 

● The mastering for our new album has been done in a big building on Broadway, and we were there to hear and to see.

● The shows have been all fantastic and intense, one different from another. Something to learn and never forget every time. 

● We called a car service to bring our instruments to the venue, asking for a big car ( like a  SUV or a van), and we found ourselves in a Limousine. All just for 14 dollars.

● We ate: Big Burgers, hot dog, bigger burgers,  fries, bacon, pizza (or something like that), cookies. Cheesecake (once). Fruit (rare). Some (one!) of us tried to drink BEARS!

other remarkable stuff:

NY loft hostel & George Orwell’s breakfast. ● Bushwick, Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  Man-hat-tan. ● Buildings higher than 100 mt. Yes, skyscrapers. More than 600. As reaps from the sky to the ground. ● The subway and the great musicians playing there. ● “The next L train is now arriving on the Manhattan bound.” / “Stand clear of the closing doors please”  Grocery ● “Sono già a corto di verdoni!” ● CDs cheaper than water, diet coke too.

By the way, too many things happened and it’s almost impossible to explain everything here, unless we tried.

We just would like to thank everybody here who helped and supported us, you’re special. First of all Howard Wulkan, we can just say “WHOHOOOOOO!” Dana Schechter, for her precious help and for being such a sweet girl. M.Fossenkemper for his patience and empathy during the mastering. Luigi Nobile for working hard on the mixes from Italy and for the funny skype calls.  Michael, Pete, Jacqui, Raz, Cooper (Hi5!) and the friendly cats.. and last but not least Giacomo Bruzzo, we simply love you.

Music is the answer. People is the key. Our hearts are filled with joy, ready to go on and on. Forever. 

Keep in touch Here and on our Facebook page to get pictures, videos and some other stories. Love to you all.

we hope to see you soon

Today is Maurizio’s birthday.

Tonight we’re going to play our 2nd show in New York.

We had our first show at the alphabet lounge and it was cool, intense and funny. We are surrounded by fantastic people, who give us a precious support here.

We don’t really know how to describe this first week in this absurd city, maybe it should be a LONG list of words like ave, yellow taxi, burgers, streets, people, shops, skyscrapers, cds, millions of people, flashing lights, night lights, and again skyscrapers.

We are starting to realize that here you can find EVERYTHING you can imagine, and even what you can’t imagine.  It’s hard now to put order into our minds. Awesome.

Love to all of you. 

do not eat this

This is one of the things that you should never do: eat this stuff.

Finally (we realized that) we are in New York City.

There’s something in the air of this city, something that you could never describe or capture in a picture, you have to feel it. Since we arrived we met unique people, tasted food that we couldn’t even imagine, saw awesome concerts and incredible places…

Everything is big, colorful, weird, tall.

We can’t wait to play!

Hugs!
