The second and third gigs of our UK tour were supposed to happen be at the Labour Club, in Northamption and at the Captains’ Rest in Glasgow. For reasons beyond our control, the Glasgow gig was cancelled, so we treated N’hampton (for our friends) to two concerts at the Labout Club…

This city, which reminds us of small cities in the north of Italy, lies north of London in the midst of Northamptonshire countryside, yet Adriana is convinced the Sea is hiding somewhere around there and we all wonder why…

Our on experience on stage during the first night was incredibly intense, and we enjoyed seeing the gig played by “An Escape Plan“, the band where our great road manager Henry, who we all agree looks remarkably like Roger Waters, plays bass.

Our second day in N’hampton was very relaxing, spent walking in the woods and eating roast pork (yuuum!) and rounded up with a very intimate, delicate semi-acoustic performance of our material, as stated above, again at the wonderful Labour Club. We met numerous Manchester City fans whom we gently mocked by singing a song for Mother Napoli. 

The only sad piece of news is our defeat at the hands of our (football) brothers of Genoa…

Tonight we play at the SOYO Live in Sheffield!

We’ll tell you all about it tomorrow!

On the first full day in London (Thursday) we are welcomed by a pale sun (incredible!). We spend it meeting old friends and making some new ones…then head down to a pub in Gloucester Road. The next day we start preparing for our first gig … and we are already heading towards Kentish Town, final destination: The famous Bull & Gate

Once we arrive  we discover that Adriana has gone missing

But just for a short while …

Then SoundCheck – and off to the stage at 930 pm

Great Night, great PA, wonderful public!

Only one painful note – the brutally spicy Doner Kebab at 2 a.m. … No time for regrets, today we are off to Northampton, where we will play at the famous Labour Club – we are sooo excited! Hope to meet many of you there!

Goodbye London, see you on the 3rd of February, when we will play again at the Bull&Gate. Go Get Your tickets from WeGotTickets

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

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
