JEALOUSY PARTY | ALL YOURS
Jealousy Party is an abstract r&b band founded in Florence, Italy, blending noise with free funk and idiosyncratic electronic collages in a personal way they call punca. Active since 1995 they built a personal and recognizable style even keeping their personnel constantly open to variations and flexible for specific explorations.
"JEALOUSY PARTY started his activities in Florence in 1995. Founded by WJ Meatball on percussions and tapes and myself (Mat Pogo) on vocal duty, soon joined by Edoardo Ricci playing wind instruments."
" ... Collective situations, open air demonstrations, house occupations, dinners, breakfasts, parties, with a predilection for self organized realities. In the context we were, the fact that we weren't considered very musical, opened up for action and performing. For a while we worked with this kind of emotional improvisational spontaneous rocknroll thing with collages. It happily embraced a lo fi aesthetic for several different reasons."
ZOO | YOGYAKARTA EXPERIMENTAL NOISE ROCK
Rully Shabara: Zoo was set up around 2004 in Jogjakarta, Indonesia. Most people, including you, would often categorize us as an experimental rock band since there is no exact term to perfectly fit for our music. I am the singer and occasionally play the jembe and synthesizer. I am also the singer in Senyawa. Bhakti Prasetyo plays bass guitar, and most of the time treats his sounds to resemble many other instruments, particularly electric guitar. We have two drummers with different styles; Ramberto Agozalie, who is also the drummer for Jogjakarta’s finest metal band Cranial Incisored, plays more upbeat and technical beats, while Dimas Budi Satya would be more rhythmic and straightforward. Recently, Dimas handles the background percussions to broaden the range of our rhythm section.
SENYAWA | RULLY SHABARA & WUKIR SURYADI
Absolutely delicious Music from Indonesia
Rully: "Most of the songs are written in Bahasa Indonesia but there are few songs where I sing in Javanese language. And many times I don't even sing in any language, just random voice sounds when I feel that language could actually be limiting."
Wukir: "Wukir: The instrument is called Bambuwukir, it constitutes string and percussive characters, all in one instrument. The percussive organology resembles traditional instruments like Celempung or Lakado, and with the right amplification it can produce drum like sounds, and the strings could sound like siter, rebab, or kecapi. The head of this instrument resembles a bamboo spear, a symbol of our struggle against the Dutch during colonization.
