Guano Padano ST

Features Alessandro Alessandroni, acclaimed whistler for Ennio Morricone's spaghetti western soundtracks! Other guests include Gary Lucas (Captain Beefheart/Jeff Buckley guitarist), Chris Speed (clarinet player with Tim Berne, Uri Caine, John Zorn), and last but not least, legendary Italian singer Bobby Solo. New band from Alessandro Stefana, who released the critically acclaimed Poste E Telegrafi a few years back and has worked with Mike Patton ever since. A dreaming mixture of rock, psychedelia, folk, country, and jazz improvisation, Guano Padano's music is a kind of road movie, unfolding between the scorching asphalt of Highway 4 and the juicy smells of the peasant festivals so common in the Pianura Padana. The twang is everywhere in this adventure through a spagetti western. Give it a try.

This was one of my favorties from last year, really great stuff, truly cinematic. I urge your readers to give this a shot, listen a couple of times, and let the music do its magic.

Happy 4th! Thanks as always for the great blog.

Thanks Zilla
Always good to see you around and experimenting with new stuff. There is some really cool post modern instro being done that I'm just now discovering that I will add as I get more in tune with it. Ever hear of Zu? Some amazing sounds.
Thanks for encouraging people to try new things.
