Giacomo "Gianmarco" Carlucci: drum machines, noises as Lord

|"It's all done with the necessary sense of pizzazz, fun and the wink of an eye ... this is the sort of record that can get someone interested in a wider world of music when the innovations of the Anglo-Saxon musical scene start to wear a bit thin. - Nondas Kitsos, RootsWorld|
The band says:
Methel is the composer and the voice of the band, and together with Lord arranges classic music with special electronic effects that break the natural rythm of the compositions and create a very unusual, evocative sounds.
They come from different cultural roots and use in their lyrics a sort of "mediterranean English",a kind of slang coming out from both latin and european cultural influences.
Their music is not easy to describe, but indeed impossible to forget.
Please note!Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
