Meet Giuda: Italys premier exponents of insanely infectious, glam- tinged and gritty rock n roll. Formed in 2007, these lysergic power-pop warriors have a decade of active service under their utility belts and a brand new album, E.V.A. (Extravehicular Activity) , which seals the bands hard-earned triumph in the face of tragedy. Before Giuda, our singer Tenda and I had a band called Taxi, which was strongly influenced by the 77 Punk scene, explains guitarist Lorenzo. In a tragic accident In 2007 we lost our drummer Francesco. The loss felt so significant, we decided to call it a day as Taxi.Towards the end of the year, we found our energies were starting to renew. We wanted to play again. At the time we had just discovered something that was completely new to our ears. The relatively unknown sound of junkshop glam had entered our world. These new sounds had the same impact on me that punk music had, many years before. A strong influence from this music crept into our songwriting and our approach to the recording process. Consequently, a new project was born, the fruits of which became Giudas first album, Racey Roller . The album was an unexpected minor success, and because of that, from that day on, music has become our full-time job. Every last track on E.V.A . will lodge itself in your skull like some kind of miniaturised robot invader.Giuda are a band with proud and persistent roots in the glory days of garage rock and proto-metal, when bands wrote fistfuls of anthems before breakfast. From fiery opener Overdrive and the throbbing spacebound strut of Interplanetary Craft through to Youve Got The Power s hazy AC/DC-isms and the scorched earth funky new wave of Cosmic Love and Ravers Rock , Giudas fourth full-length album is an outright celebration of balls-out, hook-drenched and wilfully eccentric abandon. Welcome shades of everything from Cheap Trick and Big Star through to Devo and the Ramones collide with some irresistible psychedelic embellishments and subtle bursts of sonic strangeness. Simultaneously old school and as fresh and modern as can be, E.V.A. is simply the greatest rocknroll record you havent heard yet.Giuda is a modern band with its roots firmly planted in two musically revolutionary decades, the 60s and the 70s, says Lorenzo. Were not an analogue nerds, not anymore at least! During our years in recording studios, weve gained considerable experience and now we understand how important it is to get the best you can from everything you have at your disposal. The end justifies the means! We cant afford to record an album at Abbey Road, so we have to make the most of is available to us. New technologies and recording techniques, used in the right way, can really help. I think our new LP perfectly reflects the essence of this band. It hopefully sounds fresh and new even though we did employ some good old fashioned techniques like vinyl cutting, done straight from tape!
