The Rumble Strips
Rock scathing of Rumble Strips (Wed 23/1), the champions of the guerrilla gig The Others (Thu 31/1), the new sound of 1990s Glasgow (Sun 17/2), the bittersweet pop of Pete & The Pirates ( Thu 21/2). And then, the running at Glasvegas (Thu 13/3), John Lean (April) ...

Fucecchio itself as one of Doc goals for good music live in Tuscany. After Marea Festival here is The British Invasion, the new exhibition dedicated to rock across the Channel, six evenings high-adrenaline, from February to April, the limonaia del Parco Corsini, with as many bands that come directly from the top floors of the British independent charts.

A festival where it waves the Union Jack, organized by Reality Bites and the City of Fucecchio i n collaboration with Dinner Events and with the contribution of the Presidency of the Council of the Province of Florence, Tuscany Region and Toscana Energia.

Always Britain is the land that has inspired and influenced the world musical aptitude, imposing sounds and costumes, fashions and styles. In short, a beacon of so-called youth cultures. So, to know who will be the new Blur and the new Oasis, who will take the place of the Kaiser Chiefs and who scalzerà by ranking the Muse ... it just has to let go British invasion that is about to land in Fucecchio.
British Invasion means great music, but small prices: the ticket never exceeds 10 Euros.

Cut the ribbon, Wednesday, January 23, the The Rumble Strips. Four teens of Tavistock, a city near Exeter, in the border between Cornwall and Devon, led by Charlie Waller, frontman of the thoroughbreds. The group suburbs of London presents the first album "Girls and Weather" produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, The Fratellis, The Kooks, Air) and trailed by three individuals, 'Alarm Clock', 'Motorcycle' and 'Time'. Although their journey began elsewhere, it is in London that The Rumble Strips are considered one of the most fresh and original formations came to the fore in the last year. Influenced as much by the melodic part à la The Cure, as from the garage fury and rock'n'roll and soul mood to clear Stax / Motown matrix, the quartet has a sound all its own and particular. A music in which the brass, sax and trumpet over all, have a leading role and where the Soul-Pop-Rock, evoked by the voice pulled and Charlie hot, transmits energy and sweat from every note. Dynamic, energetic and pleasantly retro, just live the four young men give the best of themselves. If good day starts in the morning, not to be missed.
In early 2007, before recording the album, the band was down on tour with bands such as The Young Knives, Dirty Pretty Things Carl Barat (formerly The Libertines and fellow band of Pete Doherty) and The Zutons. Recently took part in the triumphant NME New music tour with Blood Red Shoes, Pull Tiger Tail and The Little Ones. In summer they played at major European festivals including that of Glastonbury, while in autumn touched the United States. Today, in January 2008, it is Italy's turn. The Italian tour of The Rumble Strips starts from limonaia Fucecchio. Next steps: Rome, Bologna and Recanati.
