CHRONICS

Chronics are a cult band and almost a legend in the garage rock world.

In 1999 they released their debut single on US Rip Off Records.
Their debut 7 inches consists of two songs, “Go on” and “First time, best time”. Maximum Rocknroll labelled it “power pop with fangs” and the single entered several Maximum Rocknroll playlists.

Between 2002 and 2004 Chronics put out two albums on Belgian label Demolition Derby.

In 2003 they played at Flippaut festival in Bologna, along with the White Stripes and the Queens of the Stone Age.
They continued playing until 2009, then they split up until their return in 2014. 

In 2014 and 2015 Chronics put out a series of split 7 inches with Mike Watt, former Minutemen and Stooges bass player, and with Barrence Whitfield & the Savages.

The first Mike Watt/Chronics split single was released on Asian Man Records featuring 2 covers by The Last and The Urinals. Then Easy Action Records released a Chronics/Barrence Whitfield & the Savages split featuring Captain Beefheart’s “Zig Zag Wanderer” and The 13th Floor Elevators’ “I’ve Got Levitation”.
Finally Mike Watt & the Secondmen and Chronics covered each other’s songs for a new split on Org Music.

Aside from mainstay Stefano Toma (singer-songwriter, guitarist), the group had numerous line-up changes. After many years as a trio, currently, the band consists of Stefano Toma, Marco Turci (drummer), Michele Rizzoli (bass player), Giuliano Guerrini (guitarist, backing vocals). 

Do You Love the Sun?” is Chronics’ new full lenght,  on California  Puke’n’Vomit Records.
It’s Buddy Holly, Pretty Things, Real Kids and Ramones, all rolled into a ball of powerful garage music. A Must have Power Pop LP.
The album was released in June 22 on vinyl only, with the digital release on December 02nd, 2022.

 L’Italia non è un Paese per chi suona r’n’r ai margini di scene e conventicole varie. A 23 anni dall’esordio e 18 dal secondo album, esce il nuovo vinile a 33 giri ancora una volta per un’etichetta californiana. Alla guida sempre il cantante e chitarrista Stefano Toma. Un songwriter affine a John Felice, Chris Bailey, Paul Westerberg. Un piccolo grande songwriter che ha saputo modulare la grazia di Alex Chilton e l’irruenza di Johnny Thunders anche in questi dieci pezzi che hanno il sapore dei classici stropicciati.Rumore Mag

In “Do You Love The Sun?” la band di Stefano Toma gira come sempre a meraviglia, declinando dieci brani autografi vivaci e accattivanti che nulla hanno da invidiare, tanto nella scrittura quanto nello sviluppo, a quelli di tante più celebrate formazioni estere.Blow UP

Se c’è un nome che torna in mente all’ascolto di questi dieci brani è quello dei Real Kids di John Felice. Proprio come la formazione di Boston anche i Chronics sono bravissimi nel saper miscelare alla perfezione grinta chitarristica e melodia per distillare canzoni che ti accendono la giornata e ti si appiccicano addosso al primo ascoltoFreak Out

MAYFLOWER MADAME

Mayflower Madame specializes in cinematic soundscapes that evoke the deep woods and steep mountains of their home country Norway – dark, haunting and majestic.
They first gained international recognition with their debut LP “Observed in a Dream” in 2016, which earned them rave reviews and tours in both Europe and North America, while 2020’s long-awaited sequel “Prepared for a Nightmare” firmly established their reputation as one of the continent’s best purveyors of atmospheric psych-noir flavored with post-punk and shoegaze.

On stage, Mayflower Madame delivers a deeply engaging blend of nocturnal, smoke-laden atmospherics, driving rhythms and reverb-drenched guitars that stab and shine.
Over the past years, they have toured in the U.S., the U.K., France, Germany, Netherlands, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary and Scandinavia.
They have shared the stage with bands like Killing Joke, Moon Duo, Psychic Ills, La Femme, Night Beats, New Candys and The Underground Youth, which further might give you an indication of their sonic landscape.

Mayflower Madame is currently working on new music and planning their next release for spring 2023.

Glances is Kodaclips debut album, released by Overdub Recordings.

The album title is a tribute to one of their main influences, quoting the lyrics from Don, Aman, the 3rd track from the masterpiece Spiderland by Slint.

Being completely self-produced and self-recorded, Glances keeps a strong intimate feeling.
The lyrics are cryptic, thanks to the use of the cut-up technique, with the vocals often drowned in reverb.
Thematically, Glances deals with the ups and downs of depression, apathy, ominous signs, and dreamy moods.

The sound ranges from shoegaze and post-punk to space rock, with elements from math and post, with a rough sound that reminds of 90’s vibes.

The guitars create walls of distortion and ethereal atmospheres, doubling the energy pouring from the rhythm section.

Kodaclips is a shoegaze/alternative band founded in the second half of 2021.
Each member came from a different artistic background, ranging from psychedelia to stoner and progressive, and in Kodaclips these sounds melt, together with 90’s vibes.
Heavily influenced by the second wave of shoegaze, especially by the italogaze scene, Kodaclips enjoy to experiment with melodic and arrangement ideas.
They made their stage debut towards the end of 2021 and, after a few local shows, they were chosen as opening act for of A Place to Bury Strangers’ Italy tour.
