IL SOGNO DEL MARINAIO
(feat. MIKE WATT of MINUTEMEN)
Friday 29th September 2017
The Moon, Cardiff
7pm-10pm *early show*
IL SOGNO DEL MARINAIO = Mike Watt + Stefano Pilia + Andrea Belfi
Since earning a reputation as one of the world's most talented and creative bass players as a founding member of seminal California punk band MINUTEMEN, Watt has stayed busy with an overwhelming number of projects. Whether playing as a member of the STOOGES or composing his various operas, Watt injects his musical personality into everything he does, keeping his music exciting with his trademark style of unpredictable and complex punk-funk playing.
IL SOGNO DEL MARINAIO ("the sailor's dream") finds him teaming up again with Andrea Belfi(drums) and Stefano Pilia(guitar) - they worked together on album 'La Busta Gialla' in 2009, and the chemistry worked so well both onstage and in the studio that they decided to team up again for another album, the recently released 'Canto Secondo'. Each musician brings their own tracks to the table, giving the album a more authentic sense of collaboration. Experimental and exploratory, but still flowing along with Watt's 'econo' jamming - another interesting project from this titan of bass and heaps of fun to watch live.
