These guys would fare well in the post-rock lunchbox among such venerable acts as US Maple, The Jesus Lizard, and June of ’44.
Sacha Tilotta’s open-room drums sound crisp and tight, like a leaf of fresh farmer’s lettuce. Massimo Mosca’s intricate bass lines have all the juice and tanginess of a hearty slice of Roma Tomato, his voice, smooth, like creamy mayo, just enough there to give us the perfect flavor.

Since 1993 they have been touring, recording, working hard: Five records, countless days on the road in Europe and the USA with the likes of June of ’44, The Shipping News, Shellac and Bear Claw, including an appearance at All Tomorrow’s Parties in 2002.
