Giuda
Giuda
Giuda (pronounced JEW-DA) are an Italian five-piece band from Rome, born from the ashes of one of the finest European punk rock groups, Taxi. They play the most exciting kind of retro-sounding rock’n’roll and junk shop glam. Their look of true working class heroes (boots, polos, chequered shirts, leather jackets and short or shaved hair) gained a touch of glam-kinda style over the years, better reflecting the rich patchwork of their music.

After their debut album Racey Roller in 2010 and Let’s Do It Again in 2013, now the band are back with their third album, Speaks Evil, first release on visionary label Burning Heart. Their mix of anthemic ‘70s glam hooks and the punchy delivery of early UK punk has grown up into something that is just rock’n’roll, straight and sharp as Giuda can be. First bite of the new album is “Roll The Balls”, single advancing the album release expected on NOVEMBER 20th, 2015, a stunning quintessential piece of straight rock’n’roll with hints of Brit glam rock, a tantalizing taste of Giuda at their best.

Racey Roller which was described by Robin Wills (The Barracudas) as“Cock Sparrer twinned with the Equals”, became an underground sensation and praised by publications as diverse as Mojo, Rolling Stone and Maximum Rock’n’Roll. Similar path for Let’s Do It Again, that Dick Porter of Vive Le Rock hailed as “an album that stomps along with a silk scarf knotted around its wrist”.

Speaks Evil is the third awaited chapter of GIUDA’s history, a new tile matching the typical style of the band, a stroke to the heart and a punch to the gutter in 10 brand new songs, catchy refrains craving their way into the mind and brave guitars on a solid rhythmic structure.

Recorded with analog equipment and strictly-70’s instruments by Danilo Silvestri, the record’s producer along with guitarist, Lorenzo Moretti, Speaks Evil continues on the musical path outlined by Racey Roller and Let’s Do It Again, while improving the song-writing process with more complex structures and catchier melodies, without losing any of the spontaneity and energy.

Although the band openly admit their influences, including early 70’s rock giants like Slade, The Sweet and T-Rex, semi-obscure junkshop glam acts like Hector and Jook, Vanda & Young’s pre-AC/DC Aussie rock and Slaughter And The Dogs and Eddie and The Hot Rods’ pub rock/punk, the Rome-based quintet have managed to create a truly original sound, making them one of the most happening bands on the international rock’n’roll scene.

The five-piece, Lorenzo Moretti (guitar/vocals), Ntendarere Damas (lead vocals), Michele Malagnini (guitar), Danilo Valerii (bass) and Daniele Tarea (drums), fully embody the original rock’n’roll principle: that of having fun!
Creem Circus
Creem Circus
Do you know who "your favorite band's favorite band" is? It's probably the most glamtastic band to come out since BOWIE wiped the lighting bolt off his face. Creem Circus is what they call themselves (after their two favorite 70's rock magazines, of course...but you knew that)!
Hear them and you will hear original tunes with riffs and choruses that rocket you back to 1974. See them and you will be blinded by the sequins glued to the sides of their homemade platform shoes and glitter bug-eyed glasses. Meet them and you will feel the inexplicable urge to run away with the Circus! The Creem Circus!!
Duffy's Cut
Duffy's Cut's sound is British invasion and Motown with broken glass and baseball bats. It sounds like what I imagine would have happened if the hard mods and skinheads of the late 60s would have stepped off the dance floor and on to the stage. If the Small Faces had big boots, they may have sounded this way. In case my description is shit: Duffy's Cut sounds like a band of punks and skins who's record collection is as broad as it is deep. They manage to wear their American soul, Brit invasion, punk and Oi! influences on their sleeve while, somehow, creating a sound that is as unique as it is infectious. As a bit of trivia, you might recognize some of DUFFY'S CUT from their previous bands (The Boils, Super Hi-Five, Bad Idea, Cranked Up! and Violent Society).
