Founded in 2005 by Aris (guitar), Barbara (bass)
and Däwis (drums), the initial idea was to give
a voice to moving images. Their rehearsal room
enhances the desire to evade (musically speaking),
a filthy and dank attic of a fry house.
Highly influenced by experimental moviemaking
of the bass player Barbara (videomaker as well),
they begin to assemble tunes around the end
of November 2005.
These will become the soundtrack of the experimental
movie LIKE A GIANT IN A TOWEL, interpreted by all three
components. A twenty-minute, super8 short directed by
Barbara, screened the following summer at the Locarrno
International Film Festival.
In January 2006 they come back from Canada (Barbara’s
native country) with lots of new material, and print fifty
homemade copies of the film & soundtrack, which soon sell
out, that will be an input for new ideas. The outcome is a
demo tagged HOME RECORDINGS, with home made
tracks recorded between Winnipeg and Lugano.
It’s printed in thirty copies.
In April 2006 they start doing live gigs, that brings them to
hit stages in Switzerland and Italy, where they get to know
a duo called AMAVO, two girls from Venice. Together they
put out a limited edition, of fifty copies, split cd entitled
AMAVO EL TOCO.
In April 2007 the identity of Peter Kernel is completed with
the arrival of the second guitarist Anita. The relationship
between the four components grows intimate. To the point
of influencing new ideas, later recorded during long, hot
days of August 2007 at Sauna Studio, in Varano Borghi
It’s their first real release entitled HOW TO PERFORM
A FUNERAL. The disc comes out the first of March
