Do you like your rock heavy? Real heavy? With a jolt of post-punk and a menacing frontman? Introducing BUÑUEL!
Everyone at FIMAV remembers Oxbow’s phenomenal performance in 2013. Ten years later, their frontman EUGENE ROBINSON hasn’t lost any of his haranguing power, vocal prowess or hypnotizing stage presence.
In BUÑUEL, his poetry unfolds over powerful compositions penned and performed by three Italy-based musicians. Renaissance man XABIER IRIONDO is mostly known for his guitar work in Afterhours, but he has also worked with leading lights of the Italian avant-garde, from Gianni Gebbia to Zu. Bassist ANDREA LOMBARDINI comes from the jazz scene, where he plays in The Framers and works with Alessandro Rossi, but you wouldn’t guess that from the thundering bass lines he brings to the fore. Finally, drummer FRANCESCO VALENTE is mostly known for his band Il Teatro Degli Orrori.
BUÑUEL has been around since the mid-2010s and has released three studio records so far, enough material to stuff your ears full. Headbangers, get ready!
