[20-04-2010] - Neo (jazz blues punk trio - Terracina) + Brown vs Brown (punk-jazz, math-rock, freak-funk and what-not Amsterdam)
h: 21:00

ore 19 aperitivo - mostra "WATER RESISTANCE"
Con il progetto "Water Resistance" abbiamo voluto creare un nesso tra arte visiva e musica, abbinando cosi al tour un´omomima mostra collettiva itinerante di disegni realizzata da illustratori chiamati a partecipare da tutt´Italia, curata da Elena Rapa, autrice anche dell´illustrazione di copertina. L´art direction del booklet è di Davide Cardea. I lavori presenti nel booklet sono curati da nomi ormai noti nel panorama italiano come Karin Andersen, Maicolemirco, Ratigher, Paperesistance, Cescko, Rocco Lombardi o Michael Rotondi, sono stati scelti per compenetrarsi nel groove sonoro dei Neo. In più sono stati aggiunti disegni complessi e tramati di giovani talenti meno conosciuti come quelli di Giacomo Podestà, Giovanni Zuanelli e Pentolino, perfettamente in linea con la poetica del gruppo. La mostra, solo riassunta nel booklet, si snoda attraverso una quarantina di tavole. Oltre ai nomi che già ti ho citato hanno anche partecipato: Nicoz, Claudio Parentela, Christian Rainer, Erika Preli, Ale Staffa o Milena Zanotelli, per citarne alcuni.

Neo (jazz blues punk trio - Terracina)

Brown vs Brown (punk-jazz, math-rock, freak-funk and what-not Amsterdam)
The project Neo originated in 2001 when two jazz educated musicians, guitarist Manlio Maresca and drummer Antonio Zitarelli, join Fabrizio Giovampietro’s bass to create an instrumental avant-blues trio.
The geographic epicenter of the project is the sunny beach of Terracina, a truthful town of southern Lazio, although the trio is harmonically and rhythmically closer to Northern Europe’s contemporary music, except for the overseas influences of Frank Zappa, Fred Frith, John Zorn or Minuteman.
Brown vs Brown was formed in 2004 by Dirk Bruinsma, Viljam Nybacka, Gerri Jaeger and Jeroen Kimman, who were then pretty much complete strangers to each other. In Amsterdam that is. Regardless of sizeable differences in musical background, the band's electrifying chemistry quickly made itself apparent. A love/hate relationship with jazz, a quirky alt-rock mindset, and the genuine need to create a new music that is coherent and personal, became their common ground in the hard-working years that followed. From this the self-proclaimed 'alleged Brown-sound' was born. It's denial of simple description has spawned poetic-licensed terms such as math-rock, stumble-funk, punk-jazz and what-not... a highly energetic & inventive music, which is tight but dirty, complex but loose, where amputated rhythms collide with spring-loaded melodies and surprise awaits around every corner. It's one of those tornado-shaped fresh breezes that pop up once in a while... Very much a collective, -all members bring in compositions- the band spends a lot of quality-time refining the arrangements and deepening their sound.

Brown vs Brown takes pride in its reputation as a powerhouse live-band, and feels as confident playing the consecrated ground of jazz-temples as well as the beer-soaked floors of ill-lit alt-rock clubs, leaving audiences flabbergasted. Numerous shows have been played in Holland, Austria, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Finland, Estonia and Slovenia over the last few years. In 2007, CD 'Twitch and Shout' was released on Austrian label PAO-records. Early 2010, their 2nd CD 'Odds and Unevens' appears on the reknowned American label Cuneiform.
