BIO

Watang! Is a surf-instro project led by El Sentenza, former banjo player from the Legendary Kid Combo, together with Marla’O, guitar player from the all-female Italian garage queens The Cleopatras. This project was born at the beginning of the summer of 2013, with the help of Barba San, from the Italian beat band The Albinos, Cecilia Ann, famous bass based indie-pendent songwriter and Mimmi, one of the best and eclectic jazz drummers of the Garda Lake area. The former idea was to create a standard surf combo, then after a couple of weeks in the basement, the project took a different shape, mixing the musical tastes of all the musicians involved.

The original surf sound took a different direction, moving towards the surf revival of the 90’s, the garage beat revival, and the traditional Oriental melodies from the Far East. All the imaginary and the artwork was inspired by the oriental Z movies, martial arts and fancied mysterious stories from ancient east. The band wear original Kung Fu kimonos and the (dragon) ladies are dressed like famous almond eyed movies star actresses.

Main influences are bands like The Bomboras, Ghastly Ones, Satan’s Pilgrims, mixed with The Ventures, Takeshi Terauchi, The Fuzztones, Gravedigger V, Roky Erikson, The Pixies, The Cramps, Link Wray, Johnny Thunders, Dick Dale, Question Mark and the Mysterians…

This first rate Italian Garage/Surf band comes with their own brand of wyld instrumental kink, mixed the influences of The Bomboras, Fuzztones, The Ventures and Dick Dale with bloody Far East vibes. Hi-Profilic Reverb/Fuzz/Organ driven tunes as ya all wanna meet here on Surfadelic.

Their sound creates a cinematic surf experience like it was made for some lost 70’s Hong Kong Kung-Fu flick, alternative soundtrack for “Enter the Dragon” or some Takashi Miike KILLER extravaganza. One of the best new surfin’ stuff I heard lately, so don’t you dare miss it! Say… WATANG!

(soon to be released by Green Cookie Records), that has a crude and primitive sound ready to blow everybody’s ears!!!!!

With some lineup changes in this almost 10years of reelin and rockin, Los Cuchillos have created their personal style that combines rock ‘n roll, surf, fun and debauchery of guitars with high reverberation!!!

Persbericht: THE PHANTOM FOUR VIERT 10-JARIG BESTAAN MET 10 SHOWS TIJDENS “10TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR”

phantom_four_photo

Op 7 november 2014 start The Phantom Four in Pacific Parc te Amsterdam met een reeks van 10 optredens in het kader van haar 10-jarig bestaan. Tijdens deze avond zullen opnames worden gemaakt voor het live album “Live at Pacific Parc”. Exact tien jaar eerder, op 7 november 2004, deed The Phantom Four in Café De Diepte haar allereerste optreden. Van het optreden bracht de band het live album “Live at De Diepte” op cd uit en was daarmee de eerste band in de geschiedenis die haar allereerste optreden als live plaat uitbracht.

De show in Pacific Parc is de kickoff van de “10th Anniversary Tour”, waarbij de band met 10 shows een rondje zal maken langs de diverse podia. Tijdens deze tour zal de band een hoop oudjes van stal halen van de albums “Madhur” (2006) en “Morgana” (2012) die ze al jaren niet meer live hebben gespeeld. Daarnaast zullen de nodige krakers voorbij komen van het nieuwe album “Mandira” dat afgelopen juni is uitgebracht en 20 september op vinyl uitkwam.

The Phantom Four is de afgelopen 10 jaar uitgegroeid tot één van de bekendste en toonaangevendste surfbands ter wereld. De band speelde ruim 300 shows door heel Europa. Ze deden daarbij nagenoeg ieder podium en festival in Nederland aan en stond als headliner op het Surfer Joe Summer Festival in Italië, het Surf O Rama Festival in Spanje, het Endless Summer Festival in België en hun eigen North Sea Surf Festival in Amsterdam. De band is daarnaast verantwoordelijk voor North Sea Surf Radio, het eerste gratis online radiostation dat volledig in het teken staat van instrumentale surfmuziek.
