Biography

Sweaty trashy wild garage blues from Torino

Boto:guitars Caio:drums Nene:bass Vinz:guitars Stefano:vocals-organ


The band was born in 2005 and it was originally a duo. Setting the Birthday Party and Gun Club as their main influences the band started playing a lot of shows in Italy with just a drum and an organ. They later developed their line-up adding two guitars and a bass.

After their debut single, MSJreleased songs on several compilations and split EPs, played gigs in France, Croatia and U.k. (also opening acts for Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Lost Sounds…); later on they hit Europe again for a month, for their first proper european tour, performing in clubs, squats, galleries and streets.

During 2007 they recorded a bunch of new songs clearly reminding of Scientistsand Chrome Cranks, enough to realise how unique this band was in the italian music scene. On the same year they toured Europe for the second time with a saxophone player contaminating their structures with some kind of free-form jazz style influences.

In early 2008 after the last line-up was complete, they performed a bunch of shows with a semi-acoustic set, under the influences of Radikal Satanand Il Gran Teatro Amaro.

The same year they released their first LP Melville, featuring twelve intense tales of dirty love, religion and shipwrecks told in a moody, slightly sinister way; a timeless long journey through the dark side of life.
