anthony wild turkish

i thought that going to a 6 one man band show would have been harder!
pido called me last week saying he was coming over france for a short tour with other 5 french/italian o.m.bands.
i’m not a big fan of that kind of rnr but it turned out to be a very good show.
each “band” was different to the other, here’s my personal advice:

bud mcmuffin, niort-france : i arrived too late to see him’n roll

thee mysterious asthmatic avenger, tours-france : banjo’n roll

sheriff perkins, clichy-france : sounded like a cd’n roll. this guy only listen to hc and grind.

dog loose, padova-italy : arcella’n roll

anthony “wild” turkish, padova-italy : boogieterrone’n roll aka chevroletto

wasted pido, venice-italy : anarcho’n roll aka bloody fire.
pido already made a short movie on the first tour of “cowpunx from hell”
here’s the trailer:

nice to see you!

thank you calvin !!!

i also finally put my new pedals and a new seatpost too as it was broken:/ …

lobster art show è una selezione di opere realizzate da artisti, grafici, fotografi e illustratori che nel corso di questi anni hanno collaborato con l’omonimo marchio d’abbigliamento.
Tra di loro c’è il meglio del panorama street-art e dell’illustrazione “underground” internazionale con nomi eccellenti come flying fortress (germania), alexone (francia), andy rementer (stati uniti), alessandro zuek simonetti (italia) e scarfull (italia).
lobster è più di un marchio d’abbigliamento street: nato da un’idea di giampiero sanders e stefano bressan, nell’arco di quattro anni è riuscito ad imporsi come brand di riferimento nella scena underground italiana e internazionale.

i due fondatori, grazie alla decennale militanza nel movimento “aerosol” e alla credibilità conquistata, hanno avviato fin da subito una stretta collaborazione con i soggetti più vitali della scena coinvolgendo direttamente e senza mediazioni i suoi protagonisti nelle campagne pubblicitarie e nel design dei prodotti.
la collaborazione con nano records, etichetta discografica indipendente fondata da dj spiller, ha dato inizio a delle serate di culto per gli amanti delle sonorità hip hop, elettro con il meglio dell’avanguardia elettronica.

xyz coerentemente con una generale riflessione sul mondo dei prodotti avviata con la mostra “skill to do comes of doing” e sul ruolo del designer/progettista nei processi produttivi ha creduto che fosse importante testimoniare e raccontare attraverso i suoi artefatti la storia di questo giovane brand di treviso e delle nuove modalità di concepire un marchio, non più come entità e segno grafico unico ma come processo per ottenere risultati grafici di volta in volta diversi ma indissolubilmente legati tra loro da un codice genetico comune.

the ultimate tattoo experience

i’ve been knowing marco for many years now.
he’s been doing tons of amazing stuff during this time, including playing with some of the best punk/hc bands in italy and touring around the world the them, starting a record label, trading some of the most rare records in the world and and of course always being a wonderful friend.
i decided to ask him some questions about what he’s been doing.

+CIAO MARCO, CAN YOU TELL ME WHO YOU ARE?
Hey! I’m Marco Rapisarda, I just became 29, I was born in Venice but since 2 years I’m sick of the lagoon so I’m looking for a better place to live.

+YOU’VE TOURED EUROPE AND US MANY TIMES, WITH BANDS SUCH AS LAMICODIMARTUCCI, OHUZARU,LA PIOVRA, SMART COPS AND NOW WITH THE CROCODILES, TELL ME SOMETHING ABOUT THESE BANDS.
In 1996 I started to play with L’Amico Di Martucci, in 1998 with Ohuzaru, 2005 with La Piovra, 2007 with Smart Cops and 2009 with Crocodiles. All these bands play/played punk-hc, except for Crocodiles, but the last ones still have a great punk attitude.

+WHAT’S BEHIND LADM 2009 REUNION?
Money and weed, so much weed….

+TELL ME SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR LABEL HELL YES!, HOW DID IT BEGIN AND WHAT ARE THE FUTURE PLANS FOR IT?
I Started the  label in the 2008, I wanted release a record for a band of Swedish friends called Masshysteri and till now I released 8 records.
I have so many releases planned: Dum Dum Girls, Flight, Vermillion Sands etc.. I just released a couple of Crocodiles 7”s and a new Mojomatics 7”

+ WHICH OF YOUR RELEASES IS YOUR FAVOURITE?
The Masshysteri one ‘cause it was the first one and gave me the right sprint to continue the label.
I’m glad I released the repress of the 1st Crocodiles 7” ,because the song “Neon Jesus” is one of the best song I’ve ever heard in my life.

+WHAT ABOUT YOUR FIRST LABEL, SLYACTIONS, ARE YOU STILL WORKING ON IT?
No, it’s dead.

+HOW IS THE PUNK /HC SCENE IN ITALY AT THE MOMENT?
Pretty bad, there aren’t any good bands around, except for Anti You and Ed.

+BEST 2009 ALBUM/BAND?
I can tell you my top ten (not in a particular order):
DUM DUM GIRLS  7”  + MLP
READING RAINBOW  LP
HORRORS LP
GARY WAR one sided 7” with extra bonus reverse 7” on Hell, Yes! And the Sacred Bones 7”.
TAMARYN MLP and “Mild” Confusion 7”
CROCODILES “Summer Of Hate” LP
FRESH & ONLYS LP
RAVEONETTES LP
THEE OH SEES “Help” LP
MAYFAIR SET 7” + MLP

+I KNOW YOU’RE SURELY BIDDING A RECORD ON EBAY NOW, WHAT IS IT????
I’m bidding on a Phyllis Dillon 7”! Let-s cross my fingers!

now you know something more about him.
love.
