The invasion of the body ulcers!
A real close encounter of the third kind with live music! For the second stage of the Night of Exquisite Cadavers ... Live! three eclectic artists will alternate on stage, alien to any panorama. They will land on the stage of the Titty Twister to make us travel in time (it will be a jump back in the 80s and one ahead in the future!) And in Space! Unmissable
Tobacco the acrobatic multimedia project by Andrea Tabacco.
ANDREA (former singer of Elton Junk, a band active in the Italian music scene of the years 0) uses experimentation, applying it to pop, thus creating accessible but at the same time avant-garde music.
Funk, rock and electronics come together to give life to the "Lunar Temples", a musical journey on the edge of the cosmos in search of primordial forces and dream creatures.
The live concert is the ultimate expression of this concept. A performance halfway between the DJ set and a rock concert, where the vocal skills of TABACCO are the master.
Andrea Tabacco's musical adventure began in 2001 when he began to sing and write Elton Junk songs. The Sienese quartet composes in the quiet of the Chianti hills, "Moods", their revolutionary debut, with Art Rock and Punk trends. Unfortunately, the Sottosopra Produzioni label, which acquires the rights, keeps it in a drawer, publishing it only 3 years later. The record is circulated by the band among the insiders and specialized magazines in the form of demo tape and receives equally enthusiastic reactions. In 2003 Andrea and Elton Junk moved to Bologna and released the EP "Piss on a dead tree and watch it grow" for the label Anomolo Records. Even this record receives excellent reviews from the specialized press.
In Bologna, the Eltons collaborate with the XM24 social center to create self-organized concerts and rehearsal rooms, giving rise to the collective Frigotecniche in 2005, which for ten years has brought artists from all over the world to the city. Meanwhile, Elton Junk won the Arezzo Wave selections and performed in 2005 on the stage of the prestigious event.
In 2006, 2007 and 2010 Andrea is invited by Jean Hervè Peròn (voice and mind of Faust) to perform at the Avantgarde Festival near Hamburg. He participates in an Instant Composing project that takes the name of Instant Drone Factory ( http://www.instantdronefactory.org/ ) and collaborates with internationally renowned artists. With them he records 4 discs: Critical Mass (2006); Live (2007); I've had Fear of the Sea (2011) and "Moving into darker Places" not yet published. In 2006 Elton Junk signed a recording contract with Forears Records that will accompany them for two records: Because of Terrible Tiger (2007) and Loophole (2010), this last one.
In 2011 Andrea decided to take a break from the Elton Junk and explore new roads. He does it with a solo project that maintains the visionary nature of the Eltons, but diverges from different points of view.
First of all, Italian takes the place of English in the lyrics. Secondly, electronic music becomes preponderant. Even the live performance is different from the rock concert that the Eltons had accustomed us to and it results in a middle ground between a DJ set and a live performance, in which the vocal talents of Tabacco remain in the foreground. The song structure is now dilated, leaving room for live sampling and improvisation. The project is then closely linked to the comic imagery of andrea, which finds space in many aspects of production, from videos to graphics of the CD, from blogs to live performances.
